Rockfax Description
The line is up the left-hand groove of the big open corner above the ramp. Gain the groove from below and follow it to the roof. Pull steeply around this and finish more easily above. © Rockfax

Great route a little greasy in the morning, the roof took a bit of committing to but mainly because of the massive rest at the break, jugs all the way through.

Arms were wrecked after efforts earlier in the day so hit the 'red line' almost immediately after pulling through the roof and took the plunge. Went for a brisk lay back on the second attempt.

struggled with this: no trad since early july, my first (sport) routes in just over 3 weeks 2 days prior to this showed noticeable loss of stamina despite recent work on longer boulder problems, sea got to me and a general lack of confidence. anyway, top quality Pembroke action which builds to a nice finish in a great position - enjoy!

Did this after pumping myself silly seconding 'The Butcher'. Very thuggy compared to The Arrow. I used up half my chalk constantly rechalking my hands as I procrastinated on the move up to the roof, and getting up to and through the roof took a lot of time and every last ounce of strength I had.
