Vol 3: Ecstasy (E4, The Cauldron) Paul Donnithorne ROB LISNEY
• Pembroke Vol 3 Range East - Stack Rocks to Hollow Caves Bay by Gary Gibson (2011)
• ISBN 978-0-901601-89-6
From the sombre cliffs and stacks near the Green Bridge of Wales via the imposing Mewsford Point all the way to Hollow Caves Bay this guidebook has it all. The sunny and open Crystal Slabs and Crickmail Point; the serious cliffs of the Stack Rocks area and the Cauldron, the variety of the Castle with routes from VD to E7 and, if you want to get your kit off, there’s even some DWS.
With 336 pages of text, full colour photodiagrams, action shots and line plans you won’t have any excuse for getting lost or not being enthused.
Yes there are nesting restrictions but they are not as onerous as you might imagine so there’s still plenty to go at at all grades and remember, the sun always shines in Pembroke.
Vol 4: High Life (E2, Bosherston Head) Emma Alsford CARL RYAN
• Pembroke Vol 4 Range East - Saddle Head to St Govan’s by Gary Gibson (2011)
• ISBN 978-0-901601-90-2
Over 1,000 routes between VD and E10 all within 15 minutes flat walk of the car park, what more could you want?
Within its covers this guidebook includes the stupendous cleft of Huntsman’s Leap, the stunning west wall of Stennis Ford and the more amenable Saddle Head and Stennis Head. Closer to the car park are the contiguous cliffs of Trevallen and St Govan’s, easily accessible, south-facing and with fabulous rock. For those who fancy something a little different, there is also a multitude of DWS.
With 344 pages of text, full colour photodiagrams, action shots and line plans you won’t have any excuse for getting lost or not being enthused.
What are you waiting for, the sun’s shining.
