Space Cadet*** E3 5c
[Space Cadet and Kraken at St Govan's, 3 kb]A brilliant direct route up the wall. Climb the lower wall to the ledge. Move up and right towards a niche in the roof. Swing about on the huge holds and wave to your mates, then realise that the jugs disappear at the top of the niche and start to panic a bit. Climb up to another roof, pass it on its right then move back left into the awkward finishing corner. © ROCKFAX

In the initial part, many things went wrong, such as a crucial nut popped out, which left me with no runner while hanging just below the steepest part, and clipping the wrong rope etc. Fortunately the climbing was a lot easier than expected and managed to find some rest as well, so flashed. Soft E2 5b?
