This event is now fully booked – HOWEVER, if you want to come please sign up below (free to register interest) and if enough additional people want to come I will book one of the “bell tents” (same price as bunkhouse) – they said they can put radiators in them, so should be quite cosy (check them out here).
A new addition to the SCC calendar this November, join us in Pembrokeshire for some stunning limestone sea-cliff climbing in West Wales!
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. There are also two fixed “bell tents” which we can rent if we have more than 12 bookings. You’ll need to bring sleeping bags or other bedding as well as your own towels. Pillows are provided. See here for more details on the bunkhouse and tents.
There is a basic kitchen (i.e. a kettle and fridge!), so food will be prepared in advance for Saturday night. Friday dinner will be en-route to the hut for most of us, and there are several pubs a short drive away for those arriving earlier.
Please bring sufficient food for lunch on Saturday and Sunday; breakfast will be in the form of porridge, as usual!
There is tons of climbing within walking distance of the hut, along the coastal path. The style is entirely trad, with a great range of easy beginner routes way up into the E-sillies – so whatever your level, you should find plenty to climb.
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 – as lucky as SCC tends to be on meets, we will be in Wales. In November. Expect Rain!
£35 to cover the cost of accommodation, breakfasts and dinner on Saturday night.
As usual, we will arrange car-sharing in the week prior to the meet. The round-trip is around 460 miles, costing in the region of £70 – so in a car of four, this works out around £17.50 each (driver’s discretion).
If you want to get yourself a guidebook for the area, there is a dedicated Rockfax for Pembroke (called, imaginatively, “Pembroke”) – costing around £20. Available from the Rockfax website, Amazon… etc.
