A thin crack and shallow groove lead to the cave. Climb the right arete (small wires - tricky to place) then traverse the handrail out left (small cam), feet pedalling in the sand, to get established on the headwall with difficulty. Finish leftwards more easily.

The 'small wires' on the arete are actually medium to large sizes.

Tom's right. They are Rock 6 and 7 I think, but not hard to place, so no need to head off with them clenched between your teeth!
