Rockfax Description
A hugely entertaining and fun outing exiting through the same blow-hole as Graduation Day, but at a significantly easier grade. Start near the back of the cave and climb all the way through the chimney/roof to the rock blow-hole belay. Some find a head-torch a big help. © Rockfax

βeta: Much better protected than it looks on the ab in, bring slings for threading

βeta: Traverse out gets your heart racing due to the sheer drop below but it’s quite safe, plenty of hands if you go high enough and lots of feet toward the exit.

βeta: Ditto the headtorch and bird crap comments - the bridging across the roof in the 'slot' is superb! Worth three stars at least. The free hanging abseil in is a great laugh as well.

βeta: Fantastic route, well worth seeking out. Just don't expect to emerge smelling of roses - the guano made one of our party suggest that Avernus would be more aptly named without the 'ver'
