50m (total). An astounding voyage into the cave and up through the roofs above; one of Julian Lines' very finest contributions to the genre. From the Beat Ledge, climb all the way across to the Blind Man's Traverse; use this to enter the cave, to gain the slab rest. Move up and rightwards into the hanging 45û off-width and follow this, then swing left to reach a hanging 'tunnel' for a well- earned rest. Drop out of the tunnel and move left on undercuts to gain a huge thread at the lip of the cave. The easier, upper corner awaits.
