The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is home to 4,500 of the best sea cliff climbs in the UK. The main areas for climbers are the limestone cliffs of south Pembrokeshire, particularly around Lydstep, Penally, Stackpole and the Castlemartin MOD ranges. In the north of the county there is also some fantastic climbing around St David’s and the coastline to the north east.


Rock Climbing on the Pembrokeshire Coast

So why is this area so special for climbers? Firstly there are miles of steep, solid limestone for climbing with spectacular features, big holds and the potential to do some seriously wild climbing above clean blue seas all within a short walk of the car. Secondly, the weather (believe it or not) is actually pretty good here compared to many parts of the UK.


It can often be climbed in a T-shirt at St. Govan’s Head in February while other areas of the UK are covered in snow or wet. Thirdly, the stunning wildlife; birds, seals, porpoise and more are often seen while belaying half way up the cliff! Pembroke offers one of the best limestone experiences in the UK.


High quality rock with positive hand-holds, together with an exhilarating sea cliff environment, make for a highly enjoyable day's rock climbing. Scenic treats abound!
