Pembrokeshire

BOOKING: Required.
Please contact the meet leader or the club.


"Pembroke is a world-class climbing area, renowned for its atmospheric sea cliffs and dramatic rock architecture. With an exclusively trad ethic, steep wall climbing, crack, and groove systems abound, while delightful areas of slabs and easier grade climbs can easily be sought out. Regardless of the climbing, the stunning scenery and great beaches make for a hugely popular holiday destination." - Paul Robertson, Pembroke Rock.

"For years the limestone cliffs of Pembroke had a fear inducing reputation as a destination only suited to those operating at the extreme end of the climbing scale, but this should not put lower grade climbers off today. For there has been a huge development of climbs below HVS in the last decade or two. The esoteric gabbro of St David’s Head and the slabby sandstone of the Southern Bays, both in north Pembrokeshire, certainly provide a fantastic alternative to the sheer limestone cliffs further south, and there are sections in Range West which have some of the best lower grade climbing in the country." - Emma Alsford, Climbers' Club.

For those in the know, Pembroke needs no introduction, for everyone else, a quick internet search will sell it to you in no time at all! There's a lifetimes worth of climbing to be enjoyed right across the grades, all that's needed is some familiarity with abseiling and basic multi-pitch skills (if you find yourself thinking "maybe this isn't for me", just get in touch. There's plenty of time through the summer to get you familiarised with these skills).

After the success of last years meet we will return to Parke Farm Camping which is located a few miles from Pembroke itself and gives easy access to all of the climbing to the South. We'll likely arrive int he evening of Wednesday 21st and leave on Tuesday 27th but feel free to pick your own dates to suit. Advance booking of the campsite is necessary. You are of course welcome to stay elsewhere, just let me know where you'll be and we can coordinate with you.

For those who aren't climbing or just fancy a bit of variety, you'll also be surrounded by the National Park, countless beaches, coastal paths, pubs and cafes so there's should be something to keep you entertained.

I hope you can join us and look forward to seeing lots of you there. Any questions feel free to get in touch.
