[High tides on Sunny Corner, 3 kb]39m. A brilliant find which takes you to places other HVS routes don't reach. The location is intimidating though and you need a confident second. From the ledge at the base of the corner, climb a steep crack above on the left wall - usually a bit slippery, sometimes very wet. Pull over the bulge and squirm out onto the hanging slab. Tip toe delicately right across this until you can climb round the roof on its right-hand side. Wander easily to the top from here. © ROCKFAX

What a route! Committing abseil. 3 stars so long as it's dry for sure. Really steep, intimidating bridging followed by an exposed traverse.
Cardi - Lead O/S - 06/Jul/14 with Alex S

An awesome adventure. Probably the best of the long weekend. Commiting abseil, Crazy belay, great varied climbing. The route was largely dry (by the time I seconded).

Physical VS, physiological HVS. Brilliant route.

What a fantastic route! From walking round the headland and not being able to see the route and guessing where to ab down, to belaying not far above the waves, cold then wet when it rained, looking up at a foreboding mountain type route, rope drag making the seconding a bit more exciting - it was the day I really got bitten by the Pembroke bug!

Epic, fall and very nearly decked out due to poorly place gear crossing lines

Amazing situation. Worth doing just for the abseil in.
Kirill - Lead O/S - 06/May/12 with Charles Moreton

An entertaining route but nowhere near as good as Riders on the Storm, even if completely dry

Fantastic. Yes the first wall was a bit wet and slippery and it WAS a squirm onto the slab but what an experience.
