Rockfax Description
The arete is climbed on its left-hand side and is HVS after the start which can be baffling no matter how many times you have done it - at least there are good wires. At the top, a crack gives limestone hand jams in a fine position. It originally finished round to the right of the arete up an easy but tottery groove. © Rockfax

βeta: I'm going to stick my neck out here - the start is not just 6a, but pretty solid at that grade. If the start of Windhover were transported to the top of a Pembroke E2, it would get E4 6a instantly - and probably would be a hard one at the grade.
