Well, the optimist in me says this should be "Pessimistic Pot", but the pessimist in me says the latter count is wrong!

Spot on!

Anagram of "having collar" in the middle of "F...ern". In my book, a hole called something ..... Caverns ought to have a touch of the "measureless to man" about it, but FGC hardly lives up to such a claim. (Except that it was once thought to be the possible "missing link" between Magnetometer Pot and "the way on"!)

Anyway, your go!.....
