From the abseil in walk right to an 8m abseil off a rock spike to the base of the climb. From here climb up towards the left corner of the roof 20m up, then head left into a crack, follow this up to the cave, build a belay. (Double) Cams to Camalot 4, nuts, lots of extendable draws.

21820mYes
 Follow the bottomless chimney up and out of the cave, then tiptoe left across the very airy slabby ledge, step down at the little tree, then tiptoe some more (5m) further left to build a belay in cracks that cut through the overhang above.
32220mYes
 Pull really hard to get through the overhang (protection is bomber here), then head straight up for the top out.
