35m. The line of grooves and cracks between the corner and the cave of Strait Gate. Climb the grooves then move slightly right into the cracks. These lead steeply to a small groove on the right. Move up into a cave then climb the loose gully above to the top.

Like all mother careys routes be prepared to be knackered

One of the most underrated routes in Pembroke. 3 stars.
John2 - 01/Apr/06

Bit scrappy at the start but overall worth two stars. I did find it a bit sustained though and probably nearly E1 overall.
Simon Shaw - 04/Aug/08

Also thought this felt closer to E1.
Dave Foster - 08/Jul/11

Agree- felt more like E1 to me due to the length, steepness and exposure. Very sustained with no real de-pumping rests. Fab route though.
