Rockfax Description
Another route which is well established on the Pembroke hit list. Perhaps it has been slightly over sold, but it does give good climbing with some tricky moves. The dark left-hand side of the arete is often very greasy. From the high ledges, climb up and leftwards to the arete. Step around onto the dark wall and follow cracks up this until you are level with a small roof on the arete. Pull up and around onto the front face with difficulty. Swarm easily up the wall above on cheeze-grater rock. © Rockfax

Got drenched by a freak wave at the crux, which put me off and made things a bit slippery. Wimped out and swung around the arete with the assistance of the ab rope.

Didn't quite figure where to step right and went up too far into steep greasy ground and got pumped. Move is actually quite easy.

Left wall was wet and had difficulty deciding when to step right. Had to go quite high left to remove gear and then faced quite a swing if I had fallen.
