45m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A superb route which follows the groove which runs up the left-hand side of the main overhangs and then blasts out to an exposed position on the front edge of the buttress. Start below the long tapering groove.
1) 4c, 30m. Climb a steep wall into the main groove and follow this to a large ledge to the left of the main roofs.
2) 5a, 15m. Climb diagonally right across the wall, past a flake, to a niche. Move right again to the arete then pull up into a larger niche and finish up a steep crack. © Rockfax

βeta: One of my all time favourite solos..tricky off-putting bulge a short way up the first pitch and utterly spectacular positions on the top pitch. Remember it's not bird banned as long as you abseil in.

Jules Lane 28 Aug, 2017 AltLd O/S One of my best Pembrokeshire routes - an epic adventurous climb with thrilling exposure. Led P1, with the start being excitingly steep above the bottomless groove. Found P2 quite tough at the very end, maybe we traversed slightly too far right before going up.

shed_hed 29 May, 2017 Lead O/S Led in a single pitch. Think I ended up going up the E2 to finish from the large niche (on what would be P2), and maybe needed to go a move or 2 more right onto the slab from the niche? Couldn't figure it out on the route or when looking back across...still nice though.
