Description

When the more standard Pembroke fare of its south too busy, or if you just want a change of pace from limestone, you can explore the rest of Pembrokeshire's coast for a wide variety of climbing.

Most popular would be the sandstone slabs south of St. David's. On UKClimbing.com, these are divided into Porthclais, St. Non's Bay, Caerfai Bay, and Carreg-y-Barcud, with Carreg-y-Barcud being the highlight. Deep water soloing can be found at Barrel Zawn.

If in need of shade, look into the north facing gabbro climbing on St. David's head.

Getting There

Climbing here is a bit more spread out than the rest of Pembroke, so you'll have to see the individual crags to seek out parking/approaches. The most popular areas cluster around the town of St. David's.

Guidebooks

For comprehensive coverage, check out the Climbers' Club's Pembroke North guidebook, by Steve Quinton.  Wired Guides/the Climbes' Club also have a selected book for all of Pembroke which includes the north (and not just the sandstone slabs).
Rockfax on its app or 2009 book for all of Pembroke will provide selected coverage of the sandstone south of St. David's.
