About the Event

Pembrokeshire is widely regarded as being home to some of the best sea-cliff climbing in the UK. 

There’s plenty of trad climbing in the area of the campsite within a short (5 mins) drive as well as easy access to the Wales Coast Path and there’s a beautiful sandy beach at Broad Haven South.

Arrive anytime from Wednesday evening onwards and stay as long as you want. The suggested campsite is very basic with just a couple of Portaloos and a cold water sink for washing up - hence why its only £3 pppn (2020 prices). 

No booking required.

Approx 4.5 to 5 hours from Stafford by car.  

Other camp sites are available in the area if you want more facilities.

Evening food is “do it yourselves” and BBQs are allowed, just don’t burn the grass!

Plan for an evening meal in the Pub on a couple evenings with a few beers as well. A trip into Pembroke is also feasible

I have planned these dates as the tide will be at its lowest around late morning to early afternoon.

Guidebooks: For the definitive guide you will need the Climbers Club books to cover Range East which is in Vols 3 & 4 or for the selective guide book it’s the Wired Pembroke Rock.

Suggested Kit:

  • Camping equipment (tent, sleep bag and mat etc)
  • Cooking equipment and food for the duration of your stay.
  • Climbing equipment
  • Harness
  • Rock shoes
  • Chalk 
  • Ropes 
  • Rack - wires & cams, screwgates, slings & sling draws, quickdraws, nut key 

There's also loads of good advice in this article from UKC  a few years ago.
