/ Pembroke Access

This topic has been archived, and won't accept reply postings.
Quick reminder that the first of the briefings for climbers wanting to climb in Range West will be this Friday (Good Friday - March 29th) at Castlemartin Army Camp at 9am prompt. Also there will be no firing at all on the Castlemartin Range from April 6th to April 21st - which means that all cliffs not subject to annual nesting bird restrictions will be accessible for climbing. More info on the BMC website :- http://www.thebmc.co.uk/pembroke-2013-dates

And of course for all up to date crag access check the BMC Regional Access Database - http://www.thebmc.co.uk/modules/RAD/Search.aspx?s=71&t=&r=34

In reply to Elfyn Jones BMC Cymru/Wales:

I assume you've arranged lots of Pembroke unclimbed ice routes for us then?
In reply to Elfyn Jones BMC Cymru/Wales:

David - Maybe a BMC organised winter climbing/dry tooling event at St Govan's......... ouch!

But realistically coldish, dry sunny weather could make Pembroke the place to be....no seepage and sheltered from the north and east winds, while waist deep avalanche conditions prevail in the hills....?

It might reduce the polish on a few routes - I'd be up for the Arrow :-)

It may be of interest that the new Range West guide went off to the printers today (all 380 pages of it). Unfortunately it will not be out by mid April, but it certainly should be in June.

I should have added that Pembroke North is already on sale!

I'm heading down for a range west briefing this weekend. Will i be able to pick up a copy of the new guide anywhere?

In reply to Elfyn Jones BMC Cymru/Wales: This is a little confusing. A new posting to alert us to an event that has already taken place. I believe that the next briefing is on Saturday 25th May is it not?

Sorry, i only posted here after searching for and finding the post from John Willson regarding the new guide.

I will be going to the 25 may briefing.

The first consignment (of Range West) arrived at Cordee this morning and will be going out to the shops next week.

However, if you are going to the briefing on Saturday (25 May) you should be able to buy one there from Paul Donnithorne.

In reply to John Willson: Hi John. What's the cost and will Paul be able to apply CC discount for members or will they already be discounted. I assume these will have to be cash transactions.

In reply to Al Randall: Sorry Al, I can't answer those questions. Probably best to email Paul. He's in the book, of course.

In reply to John Willson: Cheers John. I just posted on here because I thought the info would be useful to others. I'll e-mail Paul directly.
