Climbing

Abseiling gently downwards with the sea swirling beneath you. Then a tremendous sense of achievement as you climb back to the top of the cliff. Pembrokeshire has some of the best climbing locations in the UK, suitable for all abilities.

Our rock climbing starts with technique coaching whilst bouldering, building confidence for the bigger routes climbed later in the session.
