06-05-10, Pembroke - Rock Climbing

Ethos, HVS 5a - Carreg-y-Barcud - North Pembroke.

I was working on Bank Holiday Monday with a family group, teaching mum and dad simple rope work skills in order to keep their two daughters of 6 and 9 years safe while moving up rocky steps. The weather in Snowdonia was glorious and the crags looked dry.

The last three days I have been rock climbing in Pembroke with James. Sea state was fairly calm, high tide was late morning, weather was good on Tuesday and mixed on the following days. We visited Mother Carey's, St Govan's, Trevallen in South Pembroke and Porth-Clais and Carreg-y-Barcud in North Pembroke. We managed to do lots of climbing and only bumped into a couple of other teams, which sounds like it was less busy than it was over the bank holiday weekend. Pembroke is an awesome place to go rock climbing, there is something for everyone and it can be as adventurous or as tame as you like! The MOD Range is due to take over most of South Pembroke over July day and night, but they are leaving all of August completely accessible which is great news for climbers, especially as the bird bans will have been lifted then also.

PJ Mountains can offer rock climbing courses in Pembroke this August, weekends or weeks, Guided Rock Climbing or Rock Improver Courses. If you would like to learn more skills or just get out and go cragging and enjoy what Pembroke has to offer. Get in touch and see what we can arrange.
