Mama Mia, Here We Go Again...

New 8 Pitch Traverse in South Pembroke 

I'd had my eye on a line deep within Range East for a while. Panza Walls lies equal distance between the St. Govan's and Stack Rocks car parks and you're unlikely to see another climber at the crag. It's a large cliff but not plastered with stared existing routes, although the rock is good and there seemed scope for further exploration. There was one line in particular that I wanted to check out: A full traverse of the face above the mid hight overhangs, weaving it's way around buttresses and ribs, west to east.

I did the first two pitches with Tom Rogers (after first climbing a couple of established routes first) and after a late start we were forced upwards and the top, a long way away from the end of the route. With Tom returning to Bristol, I needed someone else to finish the job - who better to ask than Pembroke new routing machine Paul Donnithorne. Of course he was keen.

We swung leads for eight pitches to bring a quality new E1 adventure, through exciting situations into existence, named Mama Mia. If you're up for an adventure away from the crowds, go and check it out...
