Welcome to Pembroke Sea Cliff Climbing 2018! Wales in October! bring waterproofs! Tide is in our favour though!
There is tons of climbing near the hut, along the coastal path. The style is entirely trad, with a great range of easy beginner routes all the way up into the E grades – so whatever your level, you should find plenty to climb. However, be aware that it is committing climbing (it is sea cliffs – abseil in and climb out is standard)
Bring with you any gear you have, the essentials being:
Helmet (can borrow from the club with advanced notice)
And do bring plenty of warm layers and waterproofs.
If you want to get yourself a guidebook for the area, there is a dedicated Rockfax for Pembroke- costing around £20. Available from the Rockfax website, Amazon… etc.
We will be staying a stone’s throw from fantastic climbing at Castlemartin Range East & West, at Warren Farm bunkhouse. The Bunkhouse is in a single story stone built former Dairy, with purpose-built robust and generously-sized bunkbeds for up to 12 adults.
We are expecting this event to book up and for more people to want to come. The area surrounding the bunkhouse has other accommodation options such as camping and bell tents. If the event is full and you want to come, do get in touch with them directly to enquire about staying – to see if / where they might be able to fit you in. See here for more details on the bunkhouse and tents.
There is a basic kitchen (i.e. a kettle and fridge!), so if someone has a big stove or BBQ we can use outside for the Saturday evening group meal, that would be great.
Please bring sufficient food for lunch on Saturday and Sunday; breakfast will be in the form of porridge, as usual!
£34 to cover the cost of accommodation, breakfasts and dinner on Saturday night.
