A courageous battle with the combined forces of gloom and steepness. A head-torch strongly recommended (6c+ without!). Victors will find themselves emerging, after some 40m or so, in the Blue Grotto, at the drop-over move on Magical Mystery Tour. Imaginative and gymnastic climbing throughout. Start where Magical Mystery Tour dives low; a speculative perusal of the Green Grotto cave entrance will leave plenty left to the imagination!
40m. Climb the relatively easy right wall, until you find yourself heading leftwards into a bay. A solid, 50û flake now soars away into the cave roof - get on board! Follow this up and then back down, where a crux move onto a protruding boss awaits you. More sustained, juggy climbing leads to a final bridging section, and out into the semi-light of Magical Mystery Tour. Not in current guidebook.
