Rockfax Description
A classic trip at a more amenable grade; the upper roofs provide delicious, juggy entertainment. Climb the right wall of the arete, move back to the arete, and up to a good ledge on the left. Power rightwards through the roofs above, to a wide crack up on the left; follow this to finish through the well-positioned top roof. © Rockfax

Amazing climbing. Tricky move right from under overhang. Great holds at top.

Fun climb! I was a bit put off by the wet holds in the back of the overhang, but once I actually attempted the moves they were fun and not that hard.

Great stuff! A bit of dampness in the corner below the roof but I expect that's rarely (if ever) dry.

Intimidating line, but ultimately felt soft. Some amazing holds!

Well good - Mega Jugs! Was keen for the E4s but it was really smeggy so sacked it off.

tide coming in fast so Andy chucked a belay in under roof so I could escape and lead through. Superb E1

So good! Looks completely bonkers for the grade, but actually not too hard. Swanage-esque top out.

Awesome route, started to rain as I came to the crux, luckily I was dry under the roof but when Nick left the belay ledge there was a distinct dry outline of his body on the rock!

Got a bit wet as hanging ab left me dangling over the sea! retreated in to the big cave and then traversed right on to the route

msoldn 05/May/13 Lead O/S

just amazing! after having looked down the route from above a couple of times and never quite worked up the bottle to give it a go, put off by how blank and unprotected the bottom bit looks, finally gave it a go. And what a beauty of a climb it is, great gear, stunning exposure and fun varied climbing. perfect climb, best E1 in Pembroke??
