Rockfax Description
A popular Pembrokeshire classic which is one the best VS routes around. It climbs the huge arete of the main face of Saddle Head, above a tide-washed platform. Access is tricky and the overall atmosphere is added to by the awkward approach. Start as described above.
1) 4a, 28m. Climb a weakness on the left-hand side of the arete to reach a groove. Follow this onto the arete and then step right and climb the rugged cracked wall to a ledge and cave stance.
2) 4b, 28m. Climb up a crack above the stance and continue in a great position up the arete to enter the wide finishing groove. © Rockfax

We managed to ab all the way to the wave-washed slab, so could do the whole of both pitches. I led the first pitch (beware some of the slime after a few metres!), Stu led the second. This climb takes you to some great exposed positions, on mostly great sharp jugs. Big blue DMM torque nut or similar is handy for the belay at the cave

Awesome route and awesome abseil in. Even at low tide the platform was not clear so started from the refuge belay half way up P1. Generally not hard for 4b (other than one move or 2 moves) with great holds all the way, but many moves have that 'heart in the mouth' feeling due to fantastically exposed positions. We had a bit of a cafuffle due to one rope getting terminally tangled when I was 3/4 up P1, so had to finish to finish it and bring Paul up to the cave belay on 1 rope. As we sat in the sun 25m above a blue sea under a blue sky sorting it out it was the best place to be. P2 was a total delight and topped out in the setting sun. Great job by Paul, for whom this was his first 'real' pembroke experience.

From the bottom platform scrambled up 5 or so meters to belay ledge, Byron did went too far left and did first pitch of HVS 4c, which was brilliant. At the pocketed cave area he belayed, and I traveresed right to get back on line. still convinced I was on the wrong line, I climbed the line of most resistance, to ensure I wasn't escaping off. As a result, missed the massive ladder of jugs and easy angled ground, and took some lovely exposed groove/ arete features instead, which probably wernt much more than VS anyway. A classic route, in a stunning position non the less.

Led P2. Had to build the belay for P1 part of the way up Eaves Dripper as the tide had come in and the waves were enormous. Jason then traversed around the corner to re-establish us on Blue Sky. Minor epic with the dodgy hanging belay, fading light, high winds and rough seas. Jason built the belay with quickdraws(!!) so I had 6 draws for P2 and when Jason came up on second it turned out he couldn't get one of my cams out. I had to be lowered down, and got it out easily. When we got to the carpark it turned out everyone had left without us so we had to walk to the pub carrying all of our crap, including the ab rope.
