Rockfax Description
A cracking line tackling the west face of the pillar, with slabby moves interspersed by steep pulls. Climb up on good holds then venture up the sloping diagonal shelf on the right until holds lead onto the slab above. Move up and left to a groove and climb this until a swing left leads to below an overlap. Pull through and climb the crack in the clean slab above. © Rockfax

A bit of an adventure! Abbed into the Hole for Gravy Train but it was wet so opted for this. Pretty sure the line and description in the CC comprehensive and Pembroke Rock are incorrect as couldn't see an E2 line going up or just left of the arête. The line in the Rockfax following a sloping shelf makes sense and spoke with the first ascensionist's brother in the hut later who also said it started on the left. So... Started up the E3, which was well hard going up the crack (6a moves I thought), then just below a small bulge traversed left round the arête to join the E2 line. However finished up the E3. Bit of a hotch-potch... Cool place though!

Ro's first Pembroke lead. Thought it was HVS as per Rockfax guide. Quite an adventure for him - some tricky route finding.

Need to be careful to avoid drag, but the roof is not so tough. Not much gear on the top slab.

Spent 20 minutes getting pumped out my gourd on gopping wet rock trying to get a stuck wire out. Had to rest. Turns out it was a fixed wire. . . Proper fun Pembroke adventure.
