What better to do this Easter than climbing pristine Pembroke limestone?
For the uninitiated, the Pembrokeshire coast offers an abundance of world class climbing. Thousands of routes, miles of terrific coastline, single pitch / multipitch and long enough to get into the climbing before the belay arrives. If good protection is your thing, there are gear placements on demand. The cliffs are steep and generously littered with holds.
For the initiated, the Easter weekend features a Range West briefing. Attending the briefing, Castlemartin 19-April 10:00, will offer another whole guidebook of climbing. To access the Range West coastline, you need to attend a briefing where you will be informed on dos and don’ts of wandering around and avoiding unexploding ordnance. There is also a briefing the previous evening at 18:00, Thursday 18-April if you arrive early enough.
The climbing is commiting and adventurous. To get the most out of leading in Pembroke, you’d be wanting to lead at HVS although there are areas with milder grades. Most of the climbing is reached via abseil. You should be comfortable ascending a rope in case of difficulty. Don’t be put off if you’re not sure, but do check with someone who is.
Accomodation: Camping. Bosherston Campsite. Drive to Bosherston. The field is on the right just before the town.

Paul - I’d be up for heading over there in time for the evening briefing on the 18th. I live in Bristol, so I coud either jump in with you at Bristol parkway (just off the motorway) or make my own way there / offer lifts to anyone who wants to get the train out of London.
