This approach pitch is the easiest route in the cave proper. Climb up low angle tufa flow rock for 7 bolts to the mid-anchor. There are a few techy moves well above the last bolt that may warrant consideration if 5.9 is your limit. A long sling placed on the last bolt will mitigate this.

Watch out for loose holds.


The 1st pitch of Bella Donna. 1st route on the left side of the cave, below the terracing.


7? Bolts to anchors. Have something for the belayer to clip in with as they will be on a sloping ledge.
