Grade Route

The first climb at the left hand end of the cliff. Follows the bolted line left of the stalactites. DBB and lower off.

FA: John Arran, 2011

Interesting and varied climbing. Follows the line of bolts to the right of the stalactites. Crux is the last move to the chains. DBB and lower off.

Climbs the short overhanging wall left of the pocketed cave. Technical moves to an awkward mantle at 2/3 height then monkey up the hanging vines to DBB and lower off. Originally a fairly scary proposition, an additional bolt was added in 2016 making it far more pleasant.

FA: John Arran, 2011

Steep climbing out of the pocketed cave and up the overhanging wall to the chains on WT. Pumpy but with a couple of great rests. Shares the DBB and lower off with WT.

FA: John Arran, 2011

Start as for MIMW and from the good rest at the third bolt continue up PM.

The best climb of its grade and a right of passage for all aspirant Margallah climbers. Starts to the right of the pocketed cave and follows the steep rib to the highest point of the crag. Sustained fingery climbing all the way to the top. DBB and lower off. 60m rope required (remember to put a knot in the end).
