The route starts innocently enough, with lots of easy well protected climbing up to the base of the cave which gives the route its name. Hopefully this provides a good enough warm up to tackle the long vertical to overhanging haul to the top. If you come off, it's more to do with exhaustion than one particular move. Clip the last bolt before the anchors with the bolt to your left. Continue up and right to the wild stemming finish. Continuing up and to the left is possible but much more difficult. Shorter people will find the finish substancially harder.
This route is very difficult to clean while being lowered or rappelling. Is definitely best to have a second clean the route. Also this route is very long. Be sure to knot the end of your rope!
Listed as 6a under the French system.
Starts on the slab on the left-hand side of the obvious cave 25 feet above the start.
Many closely spaced bolts to a multi-bolt anchor at the top.
Nearing the difficulties.
