/ Sport Climbing in Snowdonia
Me and a mate are looking to go climbing in Snowdonia next summer but not sure which is the best part to go to, I've been to the area before paddling but not climbing. I climb 5c -6b and he climbs 5's, I've been climbing on and off for years and are happy leading and stuff and have many quick draws but I don't really want to shell out for nuts and cams e.c.t. Oh, one more thing, we don't drive so access will be a problem but we are happy to walk. We'll be camping, not sure were though at the moment.
If any one could suggest places to climb or any thing could help it would be really appreciated.
A little further East the Limestone at Trevor Rocks near Llangollen has lots in the requested grades too http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=427 there is a Rockfax guide that covers these climbs http://www.rockfax.com/climbing-guides/books/clwyd-limestone-2005/
Along the A55 there are more Limestone sport options, although most of these crags are better for higher grades. Guidebook for these: http://www.pesdapress.com/Land-Guidebooks/c1_25/p36/A55-Sport-Climbs/product_info.html
Not sure what the best options are camping wise that put you within walking range of these, but there are certainly sites near Llangollen and Llanberis. The best climbing in the area is of course the Trad, my advice would be to scrimp, save, beg, borrow and piece together a Trad Rack - you've got till next summer so be resourceful.
