Rockfax Description
The best E1 in Britain? Probably! The line follows the huge corner all the way but on an angle of rock normally reserved for E5s. Start below the corner and climb up to the sloping ledge. Climb the right wall to an overhang. Move around this and continue to another bulge with a line of holds leading out right. Ignore these holds and pull over the daunting bulge above on some of the biggest holds in the universe. Continue straight up the crack and right-leaning groove above to ledges. Climb the crack above to the top, then stand back and beat your chest triumphantly! © Rockfax

Caught out by incoming tide; got soaked up to my thighs. Pete led whole route but rebelayed half way up due to rope drag. I'd forgotten how steep the upper section was....a brilliant route.

With Jon Stewart. Probably the equal best route I've ever done - very scary below the roof and intimidating. Ultimately very easy and pretty well protected. A very very exciting lead. Dropped a wire into the sea after the crux and got very wet getting it... Awesome!

Brilliant fun, steep but on great holds and all the moves are readable. Nut slots not obvious if you are not familiar with Pembroke rock but cams work fine and there are some bomber threads that give instant relaxation . Alison on second.

Awesome to look at and equally awesome to climb. Epic and crucial climbing career material. Almost certainly 5b at the short roof leftwards (2nd & main crux). I will remember this ascent forever... So will my wife Jenny, (in a nice way I hope!!).

Absolutely brilliant line. Jug fest all the way up. There's a hand traverse before the final overhang, which is confusing and not even on other route but an escape to Joyous Gard. E1 5a doesn't equate to poor gear as the grade suggests. Hard HVS or soft E1 I would say.

Another perfect day with blue sky and sunshine. Felt intimidated going down the ab to do this route but when you see the line...bloomin fantastic. Great moves on huge, no enormous holds in an out-there position, never pumpy as there are rests all the way and more threads than you'd believe if you hadn't seen them.

Cocked up the last overhang and took 30 foot fall back down most of the route. Belayed below the small cave and cleanly followed afterwards. Probably HVS if done in such an entertaining fashion.
