"The Pembroke Deep Water Soling Festival is taking place in August. We will confirm the exact weekend and place on our new X1 website, probably at the end of July. This year's sponsors are Fatface.

Sunday is the usual free-for-all but we have a new crag in North Pembroke that is 35ft high, overhanging and has twenty odd routes. It's perfect for climbing with a hangover!
More details as I said, on the X1 site in July. The site is currently down but should be up and running within a month."
