For the first time in a few years SCC headed to the iconic South coast of Pembroke rather than the slabby Northern area. This was met with enthusiasm by all as the Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend was celebrated in climbing style with over 20 members of varying experience making the most of the weather and exquisite rock.
Blue skies and sun saw a range of grades being climbed. Some members still managed to find idyllic slabs with others heading to more serious venues such as Stennis Head and Saddle Head with ascents of various E grades being made.

As with other recent meets various training was on offer and some stoic sport climbers even made their first trad leads. Intimidating classics, such as the 30m sea level travers of Riders on the Storm were tackled by multiple teams. When the sun became too much, well deserved ice cream and socialising at the campsite made a great end to a day.
Although the weather did not remain compliant for the whole trip, this was resolved by visiting as many of the local cafes as possible to sample the various wares which was a welcome change from the heat. A trip to the local pub in the evening was a pleasant ending to a fun filled meet.
