Rockfax Description
A brilliant pitch up the centre of the soaring face. It has good gear but is strenuous and sustained. Start up the crack of Behemoth, then traverse right to take thin cracks to the fault-line. Fight through the short chimney and cruise up the rib (peg) and white headwall on pockets, to eventually exit onto a ledge. © Rockfax

Climbed after 2 days at Pembroke and found it harder (repeat not onsight!) than both the "E4" and "E5" climbed there. Put a lot of gear in but bottom crux felt 6a and was nearly off (maybe wrong sequence) and the top is full on for about 8m after the chimney. I think its E4, (and awesome)!

Just brilliant sustained climbing throughout. Luckily some rest points. Climbed on mini traction

Climbed on Lady Di's gear after she backed off and escaped into the route to the right and still the hardest thing ive tried this year. escaped out right - straight up the wall looked absolutely desperate given how pumped you already are. therefore only 2* as its basically eliminate
