Rockfax Description
A superb route beneath the prominent tooth at the top of the cliff, sustained and but low in the grade with only a couple of hard moves just above the second niche. There are some good hands-off rests available but watch out for the odd loose block. © Rockfax

Great route, cool position! Was going smoothly through the chimney and first crux but couldn't quite grab the top hold of the second crux so fell off twice before working around. Then took pictures of the others from the top.

Proper soaking on the belay from massive waves

alastairbegley 02/Jul/16 Lead O/S

Easy for E1, but with added pressure due to having to rush due to encroaching waves. Wasn't fast enough as Becky got soaked as she was leaving the belay.

Nice E1, varied climbing with some technical jamming on the top half- perhaps not quite as easy as it is billed, but probably just weak!

Another great Pembroke classic - good gear, nothing too strenuous but quite sustained for an HVS (in the CC guidebook). Don't think it merits E1, especially as a useful Severe is nearby for possible escape, making the whole situation less serious.
