18m. Climb into the top of the cave and pull out onto the face (the spinning chock can be jammed with judicious use of a sling) and climb to a ledge. Climb the corner to the huge roof then skip left and pull over its edge to easier ground.

Best done in 2 pitches, belay on the large ledge. Second pitch: go up into the obvious corner groove, and then take an exciting traverse left on good holds to the nose, revelling in the exposed position! Finish direct, easily.

This really is a fabulous route - how can it only deserve 1 star?? Great climbing on suprisingly good holds. Highly recommended.
