An often-slimy experience up the landward wall. If it is dry, then it is a stunning and unusual addition to the Mother Carey’s repertoire. Take lots of slings for the threads. Start inside the through cave, on the back landward wall, 6m left of Deep Space.
1) 5c, 20m. Climb up cracks and pockets to a lump. Move right on big holds then climb to the roof. Pull around this with difficulty, then belay in the chimney.
2) 4c, 15m. Continue up rightwards towards the boulder choke and squeeze through the hole and finish as for Inner Space.

Do it when it's dry and it's as good (if not better - weirder(?)) than Deep Space. Would be a more of a handful if the rock was as greasy as it's potentially slimy appearance suggests it can be. Take stacks of long slings for the many threads!
