40m. The other popular route on the slab is the central line. Start below the middle of the slab and climb the crack to the bulge, pull through this using twin cracks. Finish direct, or traverse left to join and finish up Sixth Crack.

Not sure about finishing up "Sixth Crack" - an independent finish is possible and more sensible on busy days.

I can see no reason for any of the routes on this slab to get any stars - they're all rubbish, dirty, loose in places and generally have nothing going for them.

Wouldn't that mean there aren't many quality VSs in Pembroke then?

Compare this with Blue Sky and it would get no stars.

I can't agree with the above comments. Razzle Dazzle and the Gadfly are worth doing, the finishes of both are OK. Runners below the overlap on the slab need to be good for an outward pull, and a selection of small to medium size cams might prove useful. Wires placed below the crux require careful placement to avoid them lifting out.

Nice, but nowhere near the league of Blue Sky or Aero. Perhaps not a fair comparison though, few VSs in the UK compare with Blue Sky.
