Lucky Strike >>
[Tim Riley on Strike Lucky (E2), Rusty Walls, Pembroke, 2 kb]This route is most frequently used as a high tide start for Lucky Strike however it is a good pitch in its own right. From the ledge, traverse rightwards along good holds to the beginning of the rising flake line of Lucky Strike. Climb straight up the wall and crack above to the top. © ROCKFAX

Not sure how this doesn't get 3*?! Felt pretty straightforward but maybe i missed the crux at the top by going right. Really good line and satisfying climbing in an exciting position

Great finale to the day, one that had been on my list for long. Intimidating but ultimately quite amenable with good gear. Definitely E2 for exposure and sustainedness and the hard move right at the end, as per CC Guide.

Easy for E2, and not as good (or hard!) as lucky strike due to looser rock and not as strong a line. Worth doing though...
