Chi'en Lee & Glenn McNair 2005
From the stairway the leader "Batman Starts" to the first bolt on top of the cave entrance. The second will need to prusik or jumar up the rope by himself!
Pitch1-5.10c: Awkward first move, then up and right diagonal, then up again (crux) to the belay station (hanging belay).
Pitch2-5.11a: Straigt up then move right (crux) and further up (pumpy) to a ledge with a belay station.
Pitch3-5.11b: Step up left on the big block (it moves!) to clip the first bolt. Then climb up through a technical crux and mantle to a big ledge (optional belay station). Easy climbing up to the right gets you to base of Nepenthes Wall with a double-bolt belay/abseil station.
- abseil down to the big ledge, then down the wall
- walk down through Fairy Cave (see also Nephthens Wall)
