Description

The Pembrokeshire coast is a mecca for sea cliff climbing, with more recorded routes now than the whole of Snowdonia! The area is split here by the divisions in the current series of definitive guidebooks by the Climbers Club:
1. North Pembroke
2. Range West
3. Range East (Stack Rocks to Hollow Caves Bay)
4. Range East (Saddle Head to St. Govans)
5. Stackpole and Lydstep
with further subdivisions within each of these areas.

The vast majority of the climbs here are tidal sea cliffs, and the Bristol channel has a notoriously large tidal range (second in the word!), so it is imperative to check the tide tables when planning a visit.

Getting There

The M4 is the main access to South Wales from England. When that runs out, continue along A roads, depending on which area you intend to visit.

I'll flesh this area out a bit after a few more visits. If anybody wants to do a better job sooner, just let me know and I'll reassign it to you. Mar 21, 2013
