Brilliant. ***. I enjoyed every move and was happy not to be leading. As I really can't climb 5c I think it must be more sustained 5b. Dave had no bother at all leading it and felt the gear was ok, so maybe its E2 5b/c. He even did an alternative finish up the loose chossy bulge to the right. Why ? He may call it appropriately the Altzheimers Finish. Much harder than the easy top slab shared with Armorican, but much less fun and way more scary !

My 1st E3, Brilliant delicate climbing. Got scared going off line but once back on it was well featured. Got a good nut in just before the overlap.

what a route! felt E2 5c (sustained 5b) with good gear just a fair run out towards the overlap. best route in North Pembroke?

I think i made a new variation, kind of joined uncertain smile after the peg scars! Don't think it changes the grade and it seemed a nice way to climb it.

Fine sunny morning. Climb protected by shunt on double rope. The slab looks blank above the initial crack but apart from a relatively short section in the middle it is well supplied with holds. I would love to lead it but sadly have not had a climbing partner there the last two visits.
Chris M Thomas - TR rpt - 09/Sep/10

Good route, shame some git took the peg and made route finding really tricky...maybe better if I had the new guide.

Really liked this :) Teeny holds!

Left guidebook at top of crag and somehow ended up on this instead of Armorican. After much gibbering, managed to traverse back on route about 2/3 of the way up.

Was meaning to do uncertain smile which has a similar start. v nice e3 but protection is interesting. after cracks stop look out for finger pocket above left hand and trust flakes for feet.
