Swordfish*** E3 5c
[Stackpole, Pembroke, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
40m. One of the best E3s in Pembroke! It manages to cover some incredibly steep ground without really pulling over any roofs. The traverse is very pumpy and not a good one to fall off if you are seconding! Climb the corner, past a couple of bulges, to a line of breaks below a roof. Traverse left along the breaks to below the main corner. Pull up to a ledge on the left (possible belay) then climb a small corner above. Step right into the main corner and follow this all the way to the top. © ROCKFAX

Mad scary. Not keen on that traverse, which although relatively easy felt pretty slippy...
