James climbed the direct start to From Dusk till Dawn, which is a new route weighing in at E8.
Neil Mawson, also on good Pembroke form, led the route a few days ago:
"I'd heard on the grape vine that James [Pearson] had done a new route in Huntsman's Leap. I quickly worked out where it went from the line of chalked holds below From Dusk till Dawn. I had a quick play on top rope and a few days later led it thinking it to be around E8 6c or F7c+ish."
It would seem that Huntsman's Leap is still not climbed out and quality new lines are still being found:
"The route is amazing climbing with the gear being good and the route is safe but with a bit of a run out to get to a peg just below joining From Dusk till Dawn."
Neil compared it to the other Pembroke E8 he climbed a couple of weeks ago:
"I found it easier in terms of difficultly than San Simeon, maybe a little more run out but still safe".
