This magnificent Pembrokeshire classic should have a place on everyone's tick list. Arguments over its grade will continue for ever so consider it hard E3 or easy E4. Start 10m left of the end of the wall. Climb a series of cracks and bulges, with a hard move at 6m, to reach a rest below a big curving overlap. Pull out left and try and get your right hand in a slot which your left hand is in. Climb up and back right to reach the wide finishing flake/groove.

Superb, amazing etc. I'm still buzzing after doing it on Sunday. Only really two hard moves, but plenty of other pumpy ones in between and above. The excellent rest half way up helps a lot - two E3's on top of each other? As everyone says - "E3 before you do it, E4 aferwards!" Harder than all the Pembroke E3's I've done. Go do it!

It's possible (and arguably better) to finish diagonally leftwards to the top, rather than moving right into the flake/grooove. This also means you don't climb the same bit twice on 'Just Another Day'.
N.B. One of the larger edges you 'boulder' for at the start is now very loose.
