Rockfax Description
One of the best E3s in Pembroke! It manages to cover some incredibly steep ground without really pulling over any roofs. The traverse is very pumpy and not a good one to fall off if you are seconding! Best done in two pitches to increase communication and avoid rope drag and tide problems.
1) 5c, 20m. Climb the corner, past a couple of bulges, to a line of breaks below a roof. Traverse left along the breaks to below the main corner. Pull up to a ledge on the left and hanging belay.
2) 5c, 25m. Climb the main corner all the way to the top. © Rockfax
