One of Pembroke's most famous routes follows the shiny arete. There is a bit of polish at the start, but not higher up where it matters. The block at the base has made the start easier but a bit more worrying since it is in the fall zone. Step off the block to gain the streak. The steep original start is still possible but feels artificial with the block there. Climb the fingery wall above to reach better holds. Trend rightwards under some bulges then move up onto a large ledge. Climb the corner above and exit a little further right than is obvious. © Rockfax
