Rockfax Description
A popular route which is another one on the Pembroke 'tick-n-go' list. Start beneath the narrow projecting block. Climb up this and pull over onto the wall above. Follow a grooveline up and rightwards then move up to a crack. Climb this, with some hard moves past a bulge, to the top break. Step left, pull over the small roof at a wide crack and climb the easy wall above to the top. © ROCKFAX

Pumpy start if you hang around for too long, and hard middle section. Roof intimidating from below, but a joy to climb. Using Kai's rack.

Great lead from Matt, I would have found this harrowing on the lead!
RyanOsborne - 2nd - 14/Sep/14

I found this tough and had to have a bit of a word with myself at the bottom of the crack after the groove. This climb has a bit of everything; a technical crack climb sandwiched between two powerful sections. Brilliant.

Great varied route with typical Pembroke steep start, which woke me up. Luckily there's a good rest after.

Hard for e1, loads of gear but a bit strenny to protect start, got pumped on crux and struggled to recover. Top roof is a cinch.

Was going to go up the adjacent E2, but after a week of climbing, my tired arms told me the traverse left was too bold. Nice little route after the steep start.
