Personal | Bouldering

I hate to tempt fate but the sun’s shining and it feels like summer. I know it’s only mid-April but here’s hoping for an extended run of the flaming orb in the sky for a while longer. Embracing the warmth in the only British way I know how – by getting sunburnt – Tim and I headed out to Pembrokeshire for a day of bouldering. There’s something incredible about these spots, these huge lumps of granite thrusting out of the ground surrounded by beautiful Welsh countryside. Our first spot, Plumstone Mountain, was a short drive north of Haverfordwest. As you turn off the windy B road the horizon is dominated by Plumstone, a four sided mass offering panoramic views.
