Exploration, New Routes and Rock Climbing Courses

Sea Cliff Climbing in Pembrokeshire

The weather of late has been pretty unreliable with the forecast changing rapidly, making for lots of guide book checking for plan A, B, C, etc. But that's not stopped the "send train" steaming across the sea cliffs around the county. There's been a good mix of work and play, with the play including new and established routes with Tom Rogers, Chris Horobin from, Paul Donnithorne and Jemma Berry. There's been a lot of exploration of areas I've not been to before, which continues to be one of the things I most love about rock climbing. 

On a work front, there's been a good mix, with family groups, guiding and skills courses. Thanks for everyone that has booked onto courses. Especially those that were still up for an adventure when the weather was less than perfect! 

Here's some shots from the last couple of weeks.

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...
