The deep cleft behind Brazen Buttress is home to some of the most bizarre and wild adventures in Pembroke. Deep Space and Star Gate stand out but to be honest, they are all good. The one factor than can spoil your ascent is if the cave itself is too wet and slimy, so try and aim for dry days with a light breeze.
