Rock Climbing Wales

Smashing it in at Range East (and beyond)...

With the Army laying down their guns and bombs for the summer holidays and the climbing bird restrictions having been lifted, it's been great to get back to the old stomping ground of Range East. This is the most extensive and adventurous climbing area in Pembrokeshire with tons of great routes on first class sea washed limestone. The working adventures have been coming in thick and fast, with lots of private guiding, family groups as well as a two day self rescue skills course.  Thanks to everyone in the last couple of weeks I've had the pleasure of sharing a rope with... 

Pembrokeshire Rock Climbing Courses

Pembroke Sea Cliff Climbing 

This weekend saw Climb Pembroke running another BMC course on Sea Cliff Improvised Rescue training, for affiliate club members in North Pembrokeshire. Eight participants spent the weekend looking at various skills that can sort out minor problems, to full blown epics. The more I run these type of courses, the more I realise that these skills are so vital to climbers taking them selves into committing areas. Thanks everyone for coming and I hope you all feel a lot happier with your future climbing. 

Yesterday I was out with Alice, who wanted to brush up on her rope work and anchor set ups (also in North Pembrokeshire), Porthclais was heaving with groups, so we headed to a little known spot a short walk further on, to go through skills for the day. As with the rescue weekend, the weather was great and there were times I felt a bit too hot... Nice one Alice, it was great to catch some rays with you while boosting skills!
