Climber: Tony Shepherd and Cliff Fanshawe. Play Misty For Me E3 5c**, Misty Wall, Castlemartin Area, Pembroke © Tony Shepherd

Crag features

Which came first, the route names, or the crag name? Whatever way it happened it has to be said that the place is no more misty than any other Pembroke crag. It is rather compact and shiny though and also a huge sun-trap - get caught here in the wrong conditions and you'll find yourself slipping around on frictionless rock, above some tenuous microwire placements. Come when it is good though and you will find some great routes that tend to be more emotionally draining than butch and beefy.

The big tick for most is Bon Voyage (which does have a beefy crux) but equally good is its more direct variation Play Misty for Me. Once those are done there are plenty more lines in the E2 to E5 range.

Tidal in places.

Rockfax App

Available in the Rockfax App

The Rockfax App brings together all the Rockfax climbing information with UKC logbooks and presents it into a user-friendly package for use on Android and iOS devices.



This new app version of the Pembroke Rockfax has been significantly updated with 350 extra routes, new geo-located maps and updates to the existing information. The print guide from 2009 had 650 routes and this new app package has nearly 1000! The update includes many easier routes plus extra lines at the main crags covered in the book. It also has extensive deep water soloing coverage with the majority of the crags from Mike Robertson's 2007 Deep Water book added to the mix.
More info


This book from 2009 covers all the classic routes on the most popular crags of Pembroke. It covers the beautiful slab climbing around St. David's and all the best crags of Range East and the Lydstep areas, as far as Mother Carey's Kitchen. The range and variety of routes is enough to keep any climber happy; from those leading moderate grades keen to have a look for the first time, all the way to those who have developed lifelong obsessions for the place!
