BETA PHOTO: This is a photo of the cave after the send.

Description 

The crux is pulling over the large cave lip going from second to third bolt. The move can be done by muscling or by getting a toe hook and pulling on your foot! The second will need an extension, I would also suggest extending the first to alleviate rope drag. The route stays pretty chossy and would be fantastic if it would dry up. The optimal season would be winter when the shore is smoother on this side of the island.

Location 

The route is located in a large cave along the seaside. When cleaning the route I would suggest upclimbing to get the second and first draws out.

Protection 

5 bolts to bolt anchors all glue ins.

The climb will probably be harder than a 5.11b if you climb in chossy conditions.
