“Pembroke is the unsung heartbeat of modern British trad climbing - beautiful, leisurely and ferocious - in whatever measure you want.” Charlie Woodburn
May bank-holiday weekend in the Welsh sun (Jared has promised that it’s always good weather in Pembrokeshire at this time of year).
Accommodation: Buckspool Farm campsite, Bosherston. A relaxed campsite costing £3 per person per night. No booking required. Close to the pub and tearoom in Bosherston, and within walking distance of Stackpole Head, Broadhaven South beach, St Govan’s, Bosherston Head and Saddle Head, and driving distance of much more. The only downside is that the showers are cold… For more info see rj-roberts.wixsite.com/bosherston.
Climbing: Good range of grades, although Pembroke Rock leans heavily toward HVS and above in this area. The meet leaders will be steering clear of those! Saddle Head is described as a ‘beginner’s unpolished paradise’. Mostly south facing limestone with small-medium tidal impact.
Food: We’ll aim to do a barbecue one evening (sat/sun) at the campsite and book a table at the St Govan’s inn for the other. Otherwise, please bring your own food and drink.
If you’d like to come, please email the meet leaders with whether you’d like to partake of the barbecue (+dietary requirements) and the pub meal.
