[Billy Wayman on Tangerine Dream, St Govan's, Pembroke, 3 kb]The first half of this route gives some of the best steep crack climbing around. Higher up the crack is much wider and easier to climb. Climb the twin thin cracks in the lower wall, with increasing difficulty and some haste - don't place too much gear - until a last difficult pull up and left gains a rest. Climb the wide crack above moving left at the top. © ROCKFAX

Brilliant Route, very pumpy. A good idea to place cams low down to prevent nuts ripping.

2nd try
redjerry - Lead - 24/Aug/12

Fell off crux, ripped cam (thought it was bomber!), decked, broke pelvis, airlifted... Thanks everyone for being awesome! If anyone finds my partner's gear on the route, please get in touch. Might be a while before I can get out of bed long enough to have another go

Dropped wires on crux... Lowered picked up and sent.. Not the best style!

Awesome crack climbing but hard! Powerful 6a move when pumped at about half hight. Tricky to read on the onsight

Ground-up 2nd go, lacked intent on the crux just hangin around not really thinking about it, got pumped. Boshed it 2nd go, amazing quality of finger-crack climbing, really top end E4!

fell off just at the change in angle after an optimistic slap, pulled ropes and did the same again, so rested on gear and dispatched the rest, excellent route with good jams all the way.
