One of the great Pembroke classics. It follows a cunning line up the wall weaving in and out of the steep bits. Start at the right-hand end of the block under the face, below a steep groove which leads to a ledge on the left.
1) 5b, 20m. Climb the groove and wall above the ledge to the break. Traverse left for 10m to belay on a ledge below the longest of several grooves in the wall above.
2) 5b, 15m. Climb the groove, passing left of two roofs, onto a slab and belay. Often found to be the hardest pitch.
3) 5b, 15m. Climb up to a corner on the right-hand side of the large roof. Follow this then move leftwards around the roofs to finish up another corner. These last two pitches can be run together. © Rockfax
