<< The Stranger < Please Sir | Crime of the Century > Crime and Punishment >>
A magnificent challenge which is one of Pembroke's great ticks. The climbing is bold, the line is intricate and the commitment needed is total. To cap it all there are even some hard moves! Start below and left of the overhang arch, on a huge block.
1) 25m. Step off the block and climb a crack for 3m. Traverse right to a groove and follow this up to the right-hand side of a large roof. Step up and right, past a thread, to a rest. Make some hard moves leftwards, past a horizontal RP placement, to gain the base of a groove. Climb the groove to the break and move right to some threads to belay.
2) 20m. Move left over a roof to a long groove which leads to a bulge. Pull right around this and finish direct.
