On the three-star rising traverse of Lucky Strike (E2 5b), Rusty Walls, Pembroke © John2

Crag features

A rugged west-facing slab suspended above a booming zawn, with one of Pembroke's classic ticks in the shape of Lucky Strike (E1). There are other worthwhile offerings here too, and although the rock looks a bit red and crusty, appearances can be deceptive. Access is by abseil and the place is best avoided in wild weather due to its open aspect.

Approach notes

Non-tidal, but abseil required to reach the base of most routes.

Rockfax App

Available in the Rockfax App

The Rockfax App brings together all the Rockfax climbing information with UKC logbooks and presents it into a user-friendly package for use on Android and iOS devices.



This new app version of the Pembroke Rockfax has been significantly updated with 350 extra routes, new geo-located maps and updates to the existing information. The print guide from 2009 had 650 routes and this new app package has nearly 1000! The update includes many easier routes plus extra lines at the main crags covered in the book. It also has extensive deep water soloing coverage with the majority of the crags from Mike Robertson's 2007 Deep Water book added to the mix.
More info


This book from 2009 covers all the classic routes on the most popular crags of Pembroke. It covers the beautiful slab climbing around St. David's and all the best crags of Range East and the Lydstep areas, as far as Mother Carey's Kitchen. The range and variety of routes is enough to keep any climber happy; from those leading moderate grades keen to have a look for the first time, all the way to those who have developed lifelong obsessions for the place!
