Rockfax Description
A brilliant find which takes you to places other HVS routes don't reach. The location is intimidating though and you need a confident second. From the ledge at the base of the corner, climb a steep crack above on the left wall - usually a bit slippery, sometimes very wet. Pull over the bulge and squirm out onto the hanging slab. Tip toe delicately right across this until you can climb round the roof on its right-hand side. Wander easily to the top from here. © Rockfax

Great route, bit damp even on a sunny day, but doesn't get in the way of climbing. Not too strenuous with bridging to start. Interesting line, nice traverse.

Not your average HVS. A proper adventure route. Never quite sure if you are doing it right! We didn't abb in correctly so traversed right to get into the corner.

Quite adventurous. A big wave threatened Peter who suggested I make a quick belay: a relief from the stress. The final traverse looked threatening but was almost too easy.

Epic free hanging abseil into the unknown. Impossibe to see the base of the route from anywhere nearby. Once on the route, getting onto the slab proved to be the crux due to gopping wet holds and a fair bit of grovelling required. Quite an epic route for which you should be very comfortable (both leader and second) at the grade.

Loved this route, great adventure! Definitely one to do when there's been a dry spell as the back of the corner is constantly in shade and a bit damp.

An awesome adventure. Probably the best of the long weekend. Commiting abseil, Crazy belay, great varied climbing. The route was largely dry (by the time I seconded).

What a fantastic route! From walking round the headland and not being able to see the route and guessing where to ab down, to belaying not far above the waves, cold then wet when it rained, looking up at a foreboding mountain type route, rope drag making the seconding a bit more exciting - it was the day I really got bitten by the Pembroke bug!

An entertaining route but nowhere near as good as Riders on the Storm, even if completely dry

Amazing situation. Worth doing just for the abseil in.
