[Diedre Sud - Mowing Word, Pembroke, 3 kb]The long corner in the centre of the face is one of the classic climbs of its grade in Britain; it does get busy though. Climb the corner to a ledge at half-height (possible belay). Continue up the corner above, passing the small overhang on the left. © ROCKFAX
