<< Herod < Heroes | Galaxy > The Great Cleft >>
This amazing route follows the inside of the through cave to the lip, eventually popping out onto Deep Space. Start at the left-hand side of the landward wall of the through cave.
1) 4c, 35m. Climb easily up the wall to a large blocky ledge and walk rightwards along this. Move up until you are level with the top roof of the cave and then pull around into a chimneying position. Back and foot to the chockstone near the lip. Wild!
2) 4b, 10m. Squeeze through above a second chockstone (also wild) and climb the corner crack above to the top.

A fantastic esoteric route, the climbing is much better that appearances suggest, and the first move on the second pitch is great!
