All the annual seasonal climbing restrictions at Pembroke are lifted early with immediate effect in anticipation of a fine weekend and the final Range West briefing. What are you waiting for? It's time to get down there and climb.

The BMC have been informed by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Ranger that all of the annual seasonal climbing restrictions in Pembroke have been lifted early as the sea birds and protected nesting birds that nest on the areas with agreed climbing restrictions have fledged early.

This weekend is also your final chance to attend a briefing if you want to climb at Range west in 2012 - turn up just before 9am on Saturday 28 July  at the Castlemartin Army camp gate to attend.

With a brand new and wonderfully illustrated Climbers' Club guidebook to Stackpole and Lydstep also just published, and a promising weather forecast, what better excuse do you need to head to the best sea cliff climbing in the UK this weekend?

Also the military have announced that there will be no firing at all on both Range East and West throughout August, so both ranges will be open every day, including mid-week - but note you do have to attend the briefing this weekend if you want to climb at Range West and have not yet attended a 2012 briefing.

Note
There is one restriction that remains until 15 August: Elegug Stacks remain out of bounds until that date to protect nesting Kittiwakes which tend to nest that bit later.
