An enticing line which starts at the back of Pogues cave. It is essentially a traverse, except cramped up under the roof. There is no simple way to back-clean/top-rope the route, and the second risks as big falls as the leader. Plus there is extensive guano on some sections. If all this doesn't turn you off, then you're in for an exciting and worthwhile route.

The major difficulties lay in the traverse section. Once the 4th bolt (the last bolt under the roof) is passed the climbing becomes easier. Beware as the rock is quite loose underneath the chimney section.


Start all the way in the back of Pogues cave on the right hand wall (facing in). Be sure to search out all the bolts before starting as they are not entirely obvious. Flashlight optional.


6 bolts to 2-bolt anchor.
