[Free Ab into the excellentus "Wishful thinking" E1 Pembroke, 4 kb]A classic trip at a more amenable grade; the upper roofs provide delicious, juggy entertainment. Climb the right wall of the arete, move back to the arete, and up to a good ledge on the left. Power rightwards through the roofs above, to a wide crack up on the left; follow this to finish through the well-positioned top roof. © ROCKFAX

So good! Looks completely bonkers for the grade, but actually not too hard. Swanage-esque top out.

Awesome route, started to rain as I came to the crux, luckily I was dry under the roof but when Nick left the belay ledge there was a distinct dry outline of his body on the rock!

Got a bit wet as hanging ab left me dangling over the sea! retreated in to the big cave and then traversed right on to the route
Stuart Johnston - Lead O/S - 06/May/13 with Adam Ryan

just amazing! after having looked down the route from above a couple of times and never quite worked up the bottle to give it a go, put off by how blank and unprotected the bottom bit looks, finally gave it a go. And what a beauty of a climb it is, great gear, stunning exposure and fun varied climbing. perfect climb, best E1 in Pembroke??
