Rockfax Description
A great route which takes you into a wonderful position above the sea. Mild but it has quite an airy feel about it. From the ledge on Haze, step right and make easy but bold moves to the arete. Finish up the headwall above. © Rockfax

βeta: Amazing route. Easy enough but with a nice mild exposed start with no protection and a lot of empty space below you to the sea which at low tide is a long way below you.

βeta: I found the initial traverse pretty tricky! First lead at Pembroke though so was probably just getting round the head game. Great climbing up the arete.

βeta: Very good severe 4a, well protected enjoyable climbing, if it were anywhere else it would be a 3 star route.

βeta: This was my first ever HS, and it seemed very easy at the time. Great route though, lovely situation on the arete.
