Simply the most fantastic climbing for anyone operating above E1. Choose either the off-vertical west wall or the impending east wall, or the seaward walls, and have an amazing time on single- and multi-pitch routes up to 170ft. Take a 50m abseil rope. Be warned - if you are not solid at E1 you *will* have an epic, possibly involving aid and jumaring. Often cool, almost cold, on hot days because it is so narrow and deep. The classic routes are Beast From The Undergrowth (E2 5b), Mythical Monster (E3 5c), Bloody Sunday (E4 6a), Witch Hunt (E4 6b), Head Hunter (E5 6a), Minotaur (E5 6a), Darkness at Noon (E5 6a), Souls (E6 6b) and Hunter-Killer (E6 6b).
Tidal on almost every route.
Park at St. Govan's and walk W. The narrow zawn is unmistakable. (See Rockfax guide for the one day of the year when it was not busy.) Abseil in from stakes at the landward end.
|Replaced the crucial second thread on 'Moving away from the pulsebeat' which ends a long runout. Probably still E5 for the insecure nature of the climbing up to it. The lower thread can be backed up. As good as the other leap E5s!|

|I was down in Pembroke last week and on the one rainy days we got I decided to to something productive. I cut loads of old threads off the walls of Huntsman's Leap and replaced them.
I replaced the threads on Mythical Monster (there was 8 in-situ - almost a clip up!), Beast From the Undegrowth, the three threads just above the ground on Feeding the Beast, Scorched Earth/Another Day has new threads, as does Scare City (thinking it was Head Hunter, only to find out later that it wasn't). In addition the threads on Bloody Sunday are in good condition.
So, if ever there was a time to go to the Leap, it is now!
