South Pembroke - home to some of the UK’s finest limestone cliffs rising over 50m from the sea...expect an audience of bemused seals looking on.
For non-climbers, there’s some dramatic coastal walking to be had. In fact theres 186 miles to choose from! http://nt.pcnpa.org.uk/website/sitefiles/nt_page.asp?PageID=7
The Bosherton lilly ponds are nearby with beaches and fine coastal walks extending in both directions. Various watersports are also available in the wider Pembrokshire area aswell as opportunities for sealife spotting.
We’ll be camping @ Bosherton camping which is literally next door to both the cafe and local pub. We'll have part of the field sectioned off just for the Rockhoppers. This will be £4pppn and I will be collecting money Saturday morning. I believe it is only cold showers available but they have upgraded the portaloos to flush ones : )
Like other sea cliff destinations the climbing at South Pembroke is generally pretty serious. Most crags will require an abseil down to sea level with the only escape options being to climb out again or prussic up the abseil rope.
With this in mind it is not an ideal trip for novice climbers or new club members who have no experience of climbing outdoors. However having said that if you come on the trip with an open mind then there may be some members willing to take you climbing on some of the easier crags although this is not gauranteed and you may have to join one of the walking groups instead. Which wouldn't be a bad thing since the walking is pretty stunning!
Learning how to abseil and prussic up a rope is highly advisable before climbing on sea cliffs. This is a useful article about Pembroke to read beforehand: https://www.ukclimbing.com/articles/destinations/beginners_pembroke-10261
