This is a traditional climbers route down to the bottom of Peak Scar.
The entrance it self is 4m up from the bottom and runs sub-parallel to the cliff. A short climb up and 3m down drops into a lower rift which is choked
in one direction and too tight at the other, climbing up into boulders at the same level as the entrance is a short bit ending in a blank wall.
Further up, various high level routes exist eventually exiting at the top of the cliff.
