Left of the through-cave, tackle the twin cracks and the bulge to access the interesting groove above. Although highly polished, it remains popular. Exit either side of the final roof.

Very slippery and with a gripping finish!

a good route but i didn't think it was quite 5a, a good old classic all the same

Polished to buggery at the bottom and good at the top.

Not good for the confidence: polished at the bottom, a loose-feeling overhang in the middle and a slopy slab/crack to finish.

nice little route gets better further up left hand finish was neat

bring yer ice skates for the bottom ... a nice move through the bulge makes for quite an easy 5a route
