Climb Pembroke's Blog

We want you to see what we've been up to here at Climb Pembroke, and get a taste of who we are and what to expect if you come Sea Cliff Climbing with us here in Pembrokeshire on one of our Rock Climbing Courses or Family Rock Climbing days out

A most excellent few days...

Pembroke Sea Cliff Climbing and esoteric Bristol. 

So on Tuesday I had the pleasure of getting back out climbing with Pulkit. He wanted to expand on the trad skills he has been progressing with of late and it was time to go big. We headed to Proud Giltar and abseiled into our multi pitch journey and lesson. After four pitches and skills covered, we topped out hungry and ready for a late lunch. Lunch sorted it was another 60m abseil to climb the fantastic "Dave Against the Machine" by an equally good new direct start. Finishing by a roped scramble up the top third of Proud Giltar ridge. A good intro day to multi pitching.

The following day we headed to Becks, where a couple of mock leads then lead to some harder top rope routes. Good effort Pulkit for all your progression buddy. 

On Thursday evening I headed to Bristol, on tip that there was some stuff to be done on some of the recently developed Frome Valley sandstone, by Mark Davies and Guy Percival. There was one route in particular that me and Dave had our attention on - Morris Dancers on Ecstasy, a brilliant "VS" put up by Mark a little while ago. I've climbed a lot of trad routes in and around the Bristol area over the years and I think this is one of the best "VS" four pitch routes going... We also climbed a cheeky E2 5b that is deserving of a star and I failed to get the onsite of Right Crack that I'd award two stars... What are you waiting for Bristol?... 

A musically interesting video by Dave Talbot on my on-site first try failure of Right Crack. Good route though...
