This excellent climb for those who have just enjoyed Heart of Darkness. Follow Heart of Darkness to the traverse line then climb up until it is possible to move left into the bottomless corner above the big roof. Climb the exposed corner to the top.

I can't recommend this route enough. Just brilliant. Has some small holds but buckets are never far away.

Superb route, found route finding above start of HOD. tricky with a couple of steep pulls then classic bottomless groove above.

the essence of pembroke, ab descent then wonderful absorbing climbing in one long pitch, superb quality rock, positions and protection all the way - take plenty of cams and take the stress out of the early part!

Fantastic route, not too hard or bold if you believe the in the grade and move around the arete before heading up the steep section.

My vote for best south Pembroke E1 goes to this one. Absolutely wonderful in every way, pure class.
