That is a great clue  :thumbsup:  another case of no idea what so ever, but the answer makes it obvious!

Beat me to it!  Does Nirvana actually exist (as a cave, rather than a spiritual state!) - I see some references to it in the forum, but it's not in NC...

Get your NEW NC then! Its in Dentdale (and is a cave rather than a feature).

So still no takers so I suspect that either......

Its too fiendishly clever  :) (but its the same construct I've used before), or
I've made a cock up in the anagram bit  :( (though I've double checked and don't think there is), or
Its too obscure a cave  :chair: (though it even merits a photo in Sam and Beardy's new tome so can't be THAT obscure).

So there's some more clues in there. Anyone?
