The limestone and sandstone crags and quarries described in this guide are scattered over a large area of North, East and South Cumbria outwith the Lake District, and a major attraction is that its climbs may often remain dry when those in the National Park are not.
Pembroke North – volume 1 – but fourth to appear – covers the area from Ceredigeon in the north (slightly outside the county!) to Milford Haven. The variety and quality of the climbing on offer beautifully compliments the stunning scenery. Traditional climbing remains the main focus with the classic crags, Carey-y-Barcud, Porthclais, and Caerfai rightly taking pride of place, although St David’s Head is now given the prominence it deserves.

All this bringing new life to this important, popular, and exciting area within one of the world’s best traditional climbing venues – Snowdonia.

And it is these adventures that are the biggest draw to the area.
