Rockfax Description
One of Pembroke's most famous routes follows the shiny arete. There is a bit of polish at the start, but not higher up where it matters. Make a steep pull up to the break, then swing left and move up to place some wires (possibly the crux). Climb the fingery wall above to reach better holds. Trend rightwards under some bulges then move up onto a large ledge. Climb the corner above and exit a little further right than is obvious. © Rockfax

βeta: The low crux sequence is a little bold and contains quite sustained 5c climbing. The wall above is technically easier but very tiring - fortunately you can have a sit down on the ledge! Final move is a tricky 5b "I really don't want to fall off now" affair but you're well recovered by this point. Brilliant route!

βeta: An excellent and very substantial route that whilst never desperate, packs in a challenging mixture of bold, committing, sustained, and cruxy climbing. Interesting all the way from the thuggy start (very little polish I thought?) to the slightly shocking finish.

After the thread the route changes character completely - becomes steep and juggy with a (thankfully) great rest ledge before the finishing moves. Awesome route and a lovely spot to belay and catch some evening sunshine.

tim newton 21 Apr, 2014 2nd O/S The huge boulder has moved in the winter storms and now rests against the cliff base, a real shame as you can either totally miss the start by walking up the boulder, or do the start and then just step on to the boulder, or ignore the boulder which we did, but it makes it an eliminate. Also if you fluff the polished moves after the start (around and above the wires) you'll probably hit the boulder, so the route is now more dangerous. There was in fact an accident the day we did it where a leader fell and hit the boulder. The route improves a lot towards the top (some great moves) but unfortunately not as good as it used to be.

jacobjlloyd 5 Jul, 2011 Lead O/S Gear seemed fine to me, though it took a while to fiddle in. Might feel sketchy without the right piece. The meat of it was over quickly, but from midway it was easy enough that I got to hang about and watch Andy on Yellow Pearls, and even take a few snaps!
