Mother Night*** E4 6a
[Paul Morozzo looking composed (not) on Mother Night, Mother Carey's Kitchen, Pembrokeshire, 3 kb]30m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The central route on the wall provides a magnificent challenge. Get yourself onto a tiny ledge, just left of the big cave, either from below or above; or start from lower at low tide.
1) 6a, 15m. Climb up left from the ledge to a small roof. Make a very hard move around this to a tiring undercut above. Pull up left (also hard) into another groove then climb up over the overlaps to reach a good stance at the base of a steep corner.
2) 5c, 15m. Climb the corner then traverse left to a monster thread on the very nose of the buttress (you’ll see what I mean when you get there!). Step left and climb the wall to the top. © ROCKFAX
