Rockfax Description
'Satisfaction' in Japanese - the wall left of the arete is superb, popular, polished and usually occupied. Move up to the break below and right of the cave. Traverse this rightwards until it is possible to pull up left into a groove. Move back slightly right to another groove then make a tricky move up left to gain good holds. Follow the wall above on some amazing juggy rock, keeping left of the finishing corner. © Rockfax

An unfortunate mega-dog but one of the most incredible, enjoyable routes despite sustaining several injuries en route! Worn out from struggling over the first crux Sustained techy and pumpy, awesome variety, would come back and injure myself on it again.

Mike505 08/Jul/17 2nd O/S

Very happy to seconding Eugenie on her first E1. What a route! Makes me wish I'd been a bit more selective with my first route at the grade, it was probably my favourite of the whole week, the technical moves keep coming right to the final sequence just before the top out. I don't think I've enjoyed a route this much since 'Pull My Daisy' or 'Cenotaph Corner'.

Sweating hell. The wet traverse in made me nervous from the off. I then cocked up the clipping and payed for it with massive rope drag. Lol. Appart from that the route is quality. Better and more sustained than cool for cats. So hot today which made it harder as well. A must do at the grade. 3***

Previously climbed C4C and stennis elbow, so let down by lack of distinct line and new ground. Crux felt soft for 5b, but got seriously pumped towards the top, wandered slightly left at the top in search of a rest.

Satisfying technical moves in the first half with enough gear to make it feel safe. Then a race up the jugs to get to the top before i ran out of energy or quickdraws! From the other comments it looks like the difficulty varies depending on the exact line you take as i thought this was less pumpy than C4C...

Seems you can either go through the overlaps(CC guide description) or the less steep wall on the left(wrongfax). I went through the overlaps then back left just before the groove , felt more sustained than i was expecting but nice climbing. Despite having some nice moves it lacks a distinct line and isn't as good as cool for cats

I still have memories of seconding Flying Phil on this five years earlier (almost to the day), when he didn't take enough runners and go-go juice and ended up setting up a hanging belay half way up, which meant that Mark had to climb up to set up a second hanging belay just below before handing over some gear for Phil to be able to carry on to the top. It was my 14th ever route and I obviously found it rather hard and had to have a rest or two towards the top. How things change! Fat Phil agreed that it was a good route but perhaps overrated to be in the Rockfax Top 50. Didn't feel particularly hard, though perhaps that's because I was seconding. Some comments below suggest that it's more sustained if taken more on the right higher up.

Awesome route, might have gone left too soon and done part of the E2 next to it before rejoining Manzuko.

Got confused about which where to go once underneath the stacked roofs and traversed L onto the steep wall a bit late. Terrific route though with perfect gear and some monster jugs to finish. Plenty of harder Pembroke E1s out there folks.

If Cool for Cats is E1 then surely this is E2? Or (not wishing to contribute to grade inflation) if this is E1 then Cool for Cats is HVS?

Bloody Nora! It just keeps going! Apparently the crux is low down, but I can't even remember it as the final third had me scared rigid. Kept moving for the next rest, which never seemed to come. Although the moves higher up are 5a/5b I couldn't get rested properly and the pump kept building, making placing less easy and causing considerable concern. Generally well protected though, so shouldn't have worried so much. AWESOME route. Possibly the hardest E1 in Pembroke, so I'm told.
