55m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The most popular line here follows the long grooveline which is gained by a steep and impressive start. The climbing is a bit unbalanced but the line and situation more than make up for this. Start below and right of the main grooveline.
1) 5a, 15m. Pull up and traverse left, then climb direct to the stance. All easier than it looks.
2) 5c, 32m. A technical little move up the slab above (microwires) gains the main groove. Follow this, trending leftwards at the top. A fine pitch. © Rockfax

A definite crux move after the belay, nice way to end the day.

Brilliant, felt decidedly wobbly for the first Pembroke route of the year.

Sarah Black 05/Sep/15 Lead O/S

Excellent route with loads of great gear. P2 only as the ab rope wasn't quite long enough.

Lead P2. That 5c move is genuinely quite tricky.

Me pitch 1. Grabbed gear at crux of pitch 2.

Very nice climbing. Thought the first pitch was really tough but that might have been a reach issue, glad I was on second though. Crux of the second pitch was placing the microwire - once it was in the move felt thin but alright.

COLD! Rob crushed it with a set of cams and some microwires after we (I) forgot we had split the rack and that I had the wires. Last time I do that. Good, and tricky climbing, especially in the icey wind!

Great route, the crux on pitch two with the single microwire protection (and the bold moves above) make this E2 I think. The 1st pitch is 5b.

with Luke Thomas
Cardi 31/Aug/12 AltLd O/S

Led P1 - quite big, steep and bold moves until a thread is reached. Maybe a couple of 5b moves to get to the belay too. Start of second pitch is a big contrast to most routes in Pembroke! Great route overall.
