New Routes Pembrokeshire

Carreg Y Barcud New Routes

Rock Climb First Ascents in North Pembroke

Yesterday I met up after work with Gavin, an old mate from my time at the Gloucester Climbing Centre. Gav' has an appetite for searching out new routes, and as he was working in Pembrokeshire for much of last year, has been putting up fresh unexplored lines. His effort have mainly been focused in North Pembs and when I got a message that he had his eye on something, we met up and headed to the crag. Gav' kicked off just left of Ethos, climbing an established route and then up left into adventurous unclimbed ground. Topping out on the new E1 5a - Woodcroft By The Sea. We then went on a bit of a wonder further left than any described routes in the guide book and came across a cool looking 15m high wall with a striking crack and flake cutting up the middle. This ended up becoming a cool HVS 4c I named Blue In The Face. Gav' then soloed a cheeky Diff to the right that he called Alex and Agne. A nice evening out...
