A brilliant direct route up the wall. Climb the lower wall to the ledge. Move up and right towards a niche in the roof. Swing about on the huge holds and wave to your mates, then realise that the jugs disappear at the top of the niche and start to panic a bit. Climb up to another roof, pass it on its right then move back left into the awkward finishing corner.

A brilliant roof pitch. Superb jugs at the lip. Felt a little bit awkward in places but brilliant gear.

Many people's first Pembroke E3. Spectacular but safe. Easier in the afternoon when the crag dries out.

Despite not having any particularly difficult moves, it does keeps coming at you. Keep some oomph reserved for the last corner, which is more awkward than it looks. Plenty of rests to be had while turning the lower overhang too, if you use your loaf!

lovely juggy climbing then a final groove/ corner which is well airy scarey bridging. excellent.

An easy E3 if you have good power/weight ratio.

One of my first clean E3 onsights - a brilliant route. If you've done the Butcher and are wondering where to look next, look no further.

Really awesome route; not hard for E3 but an intimidating need to psyche yourself up for the lower half as it's technically straightforward but STEEP! Great rest at halfway and the top bridging moves are a joy esp if you use your feet well.Ps Who are the miserable gits who gave this 2 stars?!
