Tim W - 2nd O/S - 15/Mar/14 with Paul Black

Not the warm up looking for. Long reachy moves from the start and no big gear for the last crack so exited over in right hand corner!
Dibdawg - Lead dnf - 12/Oct/13 with Richard Lade

E2 5b it is not. Definitely 5c and probably E3.
Ed morris - 2nd O/S - 29/Sep/13 with Adam Bevan

Hidden - AltLd rpt - 30/Jun/13

Seconded P1 with one rest. Led P2 cleanly.
Kirill - AltLd dog - 26/Aug/12 with Charles Moreton

Led the main pitch but not cleanly as I ran out of steam at the crux, where I had to take several rests on the gear before working out a sequence. Gratifying though it is to see the votes for E3, I don't suppose it is really...

Hidden - Lead O/S - 05/Nov/11

Felt very hard work for the grade; just on-sighted it. Lots of tries before sussing the key to getting through the crux sequence on the upper wall of the first pitch. Two seasoned Pembroke afficianados reckon this is a good E3..
