Rockfax Description
Start below the left-hand of two slim left-facing grooves in the wall below the high overhang. Climb up to the groove then step right to a short crack. Move up and left across the wall and then climb direct, just left of the overhang, to the ledge belay. © Rockfax

βeta: Well E1 and a half it is then, starts like an E2, but soon eases up to an easier finish. If you look sideways for feet holds it's much easier and there is plenty of gear.

βeta: Interestingly, the fax guide itself seems a little confused about the grade - check the picture over the page from the route description. Personally, I don't recall the gear being anything less than bomber.

βeta: Agree - bottom end E2, which is what it gets in the CC guide.

βeta: I'd give it bottom end E2 myself - there's quite a hard and committing move low down leading to a sustained 5B section.

βeta: Yes, an absorbing and technical 'hidden' gem. Whilst it lasts, quite a hard E1, the bottom third is very sustained, and the route finding is not always easy. A bit rattly at the top, but c'est la Pembroke.
