Pat Lowman on Sea Groove © Edd Reed

Crag features

Grand, shapely and classic - Pembroke wall climbing at its very best. Yet it's much less trafficked than its close neighbour - this is because, darn it, the best routes are also the hardest ones! The White Tower is home to the incredible wall climb of White Heat, and the infamous testpiece The Great White. The best 'easy' is undoubtedly the lengthy Sea Groove, which flanks the right edge of the Tower.

Approach notes

Approach from the Lydstep Point NT car park in 5 mins.

From Mother Careys follow a path east to grass slopes which go down almost to sea level, then rises to a pinnacle joined to the coast by a grassy saddle. Go through a notch in the west summit of the tower and down to the sea-level platform.

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!
