Wraith** E2 5c
[Al launching into the final section up the exposed arete, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
A great climb but perhaps not as great as it once was, and it should be considered as high in the grade. Start below a small niche at the base of the arete. Climb into this then step left onto the wall which is followed easily to some large ledges. Climb the left-hand side of the arete above. © ROCKFAX

Nice to second, no doubt absorbing to lead!

Cool climbing up the arÍte in a wild position. Not desperate for E3 but balancy and technical climbing with some run outs probably equals E3. I kept looking up thinking it was about to get desperate but it never really does. Really really good.
Duncan Campbell - Lead O/S - 23/May/15 with Pete Graham

Nice climbing in a nice position.

Nice face climbing with occasional use of the arete. Had to climb up to belay from some higher ledges to escape the incoming tide whilst belaying at one point - it comes in fast!

A great route, maybe my favourite at Moter Carey's so far. Just a great position with some really nice climbing!

Getting off the ground seemed to be he crux. Steady and pleasant after that.

lots of good gear, nowhere bold but still E3.
Ed morris - Lead O/S - 08/Aug/12 with Adam Bevan

Owain Llewelyn - 2nd - 08/Mar/12 with Gareth E

Felt like i was bailing or going off route by using the big ledges. It's a weird line that can't decide if it's an arete climb or a crack climb, i didn't like it but i was in a grump that day. i reckon there is some 5c moves.

felt like solid E3 to me. One barn doorish move a little higher above the gear than you would like. Lower section is amazing sustained 5a, with the crux near the top. A full grade harder than Brazen Buttress and Strait gate which I think are both benchmark Pembroke E2
