New Routes in Pembroke and a NICAS Moderation

New Rock Climbs on the Pembrokeshire Sea Cliffs

Last week I was out doing the first NICAS moderation of the season in South Wales for Rock Uk, The Summit Centre. A very large indoor climbing centre, well worth a look if you're in the area. Today I was out with with Paul and decided to head to the non bird banned right hand section of Ripper Cliff, with eyes on new routes. I kicked off with a great looking line that took in a chimney, a crux wall and excellent hanging corner at E1 5b, worth a star and given the name "Put it on the Bill". Paul then took a line to it's left, snaking up grooves to an overhang and nice head wall above at HVS 5a and also deserving of a star. After abseiling down again, I headed up a line to the right of PIOTB, following a slab, rib then steeper tricky slab, into a corner and exiting up left. This was called "Rip Off" and went at HVS 5a. Paul finished by climbing another new line right of RO, again at HVS 5a. Not a bad day of new routing on great rock on a great cliff. Still plenty of potential on the fantastic Pembrokeshire sea cliffs!
