Rockfax Description
The main line of the slab is yet another Littlejohn classic, one of the great climbs of Pembroke. The route has adequate protection (small wires) and is slightly serious for the second. Start from the huge boulder beneath the wall or, when the tide is in, as for Strike Lucky. Step awkwardly off the boulder and climb up into a groove to the left of a roof (possible refuge belay). Move up to gain the rising (chalk-covered) line on the wall. Follow this until 4m short of the corner, then climb straight up to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: great route - i thought E1. Think the numbering of SL and LS is wrong on the new rockfax topo though

βeta: Getting a bit polished, felt more like E2 to me especially for the postition. Take lots of small wires!

βeta: Youre right about it being serious for the second. Basically its e1, and never harder than 5b, but the environment and the consequences of your second taking a slip are pretty harsh

βeta: Reckon this is E2; inescapable and quite strenuous...found myself wilting on the steep finishing bulge.

βeta: Sounds daft I know, but I reckon Lucky Strike is harder than Strike Lucky. The comment about the second on LS is very true which is why I reckon it deserves to be E2. SL by comparison is straightforward and well geared.
