Steepest at the start but with reasonable holds. Begin at a short corner, then follow the steep slab above (look for threads). Near the top trend left delicately to reach better holds on a flake.


Use R3a approach path. Route is right of centre on obvious steep slab, about 20' right of cave.


Mainly nuts and threads. Abseil descent.
