UKC

35m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A Pembroke classic which soars up and out over the sea with more buckets than a garden centre. It is usually done in one pitch but can be split at a small stance if the tide threatens. Start beneath a line of grooves 5m left of the corner.
1) 5c, 20m. Climb up to the base of the first groove and follow it to a bulge. Power around this then swing up and right to a jutting flake (hands-off rest possible!). Continue up cracks to a well-positioned stance.
2) 5b, 15m. Pull into the upper groove and follow it more easily to the top. Stake belay well back. © Rockfax

βeta: Classic! Definitely worth linking the two pitches together.

βeta: Surely one of the best E3's in Pembroke when done as one, very long glorious pitch? First pitch was a bit pumpy for me though and took some good swooping falls! Good tip, use the big flakes rather than avoiding them!
