Crag features

A justifiably popular climbing venue located a kilometre south-east of St. David's where the popular beach can be accessed by a steep path from the cliff-top car park. On the beach there is a minor crag with 3 routes and some bouldering while the headland to the east has 2 excellent slabs with a good range of quality climbs.

Approach notes

Caerfai is clearly signposted from St. David's; follow the road south from the visitor centre. Approach from Caerfai Beach car park in 5-10 mins.

Rockfax Digital

Available on Rockfax Digital

Rockfax Digital 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.


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!
Beware the scramble descent when the grass is damp - it becomes very slippery. A slip on the grass at the start of the descent would not be pretty.
