Pembroke: Range West 2019 Briefings
- Wednesday 9th January 2019
Jan 9th; 2019
Briefing dates have now been released for Range West for 2019.
The BMC report that, as usual, all climbers wanting to climb on Range West in 2019 must attend a safety briefing. Range West is a live firing range and unexploded ordnance and other dangerous military items are found on parts of Range West.
The briefing dates for 2019 are:
Thursday 07/03/2019 at 18.00
Saturday 09/03/19 at 10.00
Thursday 18/04/19 at 18.00
Good Friday 19/04/19 at 10.00
Thursday 23/05/19 at 18.00
Saturday 25/05/19 at 10.00 (also part of the Annual Pembroke Climbing Festival - details to follow!).
In addition, an extra August briefing on Thursday 08/08/19 at 18.00, to take advantage of the month long shut down of the Ranges. (There is no firing at all and full access for briefed climbers to Range West for the whole of August).
All the briefings are held at the Castlemartin Army Camp, postcode SA71 5EB. As usual turn up about 10 minutes early to allow for parking (next to the big Chieftain tanks!) and to get through the security gates.
There is no military training or firing (and therefore there will full access for climbing, subject to the usual conservation restrictions) between the following dates:
Saturday 13/04/19 to Sunday 28/04/2019 and Thursday 01/08/2019 until Monday 02/09/2019.
