If you found climbing on horrid crumbly culm slabs a bit harrowing, fear not - now it’s time for the Pembroke meet. Well on 17/18 August.
For those that don’t know, Pembrokeshire is home to an amazing quantity of quality routes in a pretty idyllic setting. The rock generally doesn’t crumble and the routes are nice and steep to give your toes a rest.
Generally a better venue for those operating at vs and above but there are areas (eg saddle head) which offer stuff in lower grades. Generally approaches are relatively committing so competence in abseiling (and potentially prussiking) is useful. If you’re less experienced then have a chat with other members about to find out if it would be a suitable venue.
We stay in south Pembrokeshire at a campsite in Bosherston which is basic but nice and cheap (£4 a night I think).
Unfortunately I have gone and injured one of my biceps climbing at The Castle, which means it’s unlikely that I will be able to climb next weekend! I intend to get a scan undertaken to get a proper prognosis, but I have removed myself from the spreadsheet for now; should I make a miraculous recovery, I’ll reinstate myself.
