Did first pitch clean,only to be confronted by a Fulmar that repeatedly vomited in my direction every time it caught eye contact with me,leaving me no choice but to make a belay in an earlier stance than the normal one. Then eventually led the 2nd half,but sadly popped off after getting through the lip due to being completely pumped out from trying to avoid the nest area!what a great route though!jon_gill1 - Lead dog - 25/Aug/13 with ross garfoot
Epic fail. Imogen went up first, then I did. Got scared by the bird hissing at me. Came down, got scared, thought I was going to die and went for a swim. Thanks to the guys for putting an Ab rope down and saving our gear. Should have read the guidebook and done it in one pitch. Awesome route which I must come back for.

Lead in one pitch as there was a Fulmar in the cave.

Mark led first pitch up to the thread and brought me up to there. The tide was coming in and the sea rough so I needed to move off the ledge. I went from the thread to the cave, straight over the roof and emerged to find it raining. A classic Mother Scarey's adventure!

Stefan_Morris - AltLd - 03/Sep/12 with Dickon Morris
Crux of the first pitch was visibly soaking from the ground but decided to try anyway. After hanging around for ages chalking all the holds was seriously pumped so had to rest on the rope. Still a great route and probably not particularly hard for E2 when dry.
pembrokeshirecaver - AltLd - 03/Sep/12 with Stefan Morris
What an experience! Needed a couple of rests on P1 as got a bit tired when not completely sure where to go. Highly recommended to do in 2 pitches for the outrageous belay position! Top pitch was mental!

Wow. Pretty ridiculous! As one massive pitch. For the record it goes pretty much straight up from the ledge left of Stargate.

went back to lead the second pitch. awesome fun, be careful of the nesting bird who was actually really relaxed in our presence
davesimpson - AltLd rpt - Aug/11 with Dean Russel
Wild moves on awesome jugs over the overhang. Went up the arete which was ok...bit loose at the top though.
thomasadixon - Lead O/S - 27/Jul/11 with Mike
One 5c move in the groove. Totally dry but birds nesting in the cave made it awkward. Ran out of slings as I was expecting to do it in two pitches.

Fantastic route. The nesting Fulmar at the first belay was so gonna kick my ass though. I got a surprise when it introduced itself!
robin_hackney - AltLd O/S - 22/Jun/11 with Si
In one long pitch. Start has a tricky bit with greasy smears. Beneath and above the roof were nesting fuckwings so took a swerving line through the roof which felt about 5c. You could quite safely climb the route just on slings probably. More jugs than a jug mueseum.

Got a bit more than we had bargained for. The tide was in so decided to abseil down the finishing corner, which led straight into the sea, so had to do some jiggery pockery with placing several bits of gear half way down to force the abseil line onto the boulders below the arch. Very exciting but completely pointless as could just have abbed in on the other side of the arch and walked under it. Phil had fun following this ab line and having to take out the gear while I tried to hold the rope in. Phil was going to do the first pitch but pumped out half way up, so I pulled the ropes through and took over. Found it rather hard to the half way point. Later realised that we had started up Star Gate, which is why the moves felt more like 5c. Went on to finish the route in one pitch as Phil didn't fancy leading the overhang. Brilliant wild climbing over the roof. Should go back and do the proper first pitch and the Fresh Air Finish.
Misha - Lead O/S - 28/Aug/10 with Phil
Started up the start to stargate instead of deep space on stone cold arms - did not last long! Misha got on and did the lot as arms were dead and feeling bad after 2am arrival. Much easier second time around.

Brilliant brilliant route!
Lead it throughout. My wife retreated from the cave belay after much wailing and gnashing of teeth had taken place. She really wasn't liking the look of that roof either!
I abbed off and stripped the whole route then treated her to an ascent of The Cracks. (Aren't I nice!!) ;)

There is currently a fulmar in the cave where you are meant to belay - so could only do first pitch :(
