True Adventure and a Floating Rock Shoe

Today I was out with Ari and Kiia, who were on holiday in Pembrokeshire. We met up at St. Davids and headed to Initiation Slabs to get into the swing of things. We started with the lovely Gemini, then on to Aries and Capricorn. Three routes in, and bang on spring low tide, I suggested we head down to sea level to attempt a traverse around, to check out an area further west. They were keen, and we got down and explored some incredible rock features, with the sea out as far as it goes. A bit of shallow wading and roped scrambling later, we were sat on a very convenient ledge below the fantastic St. Non's Pinnacle. Pat Littlejohn was on the first ascent of this route, and it carries a lot of his haw marks - Great line, exciting positions, and a true classic at it's (modest) grade. It is a little esoteric, but all the better for it and a fantastic adventure (worth more than it's one star, for those that like that kind of thing!) Anyway, great day out and great to climb with you both, thanks a lot.
