Hi, does anyone know why Lion Rock isn't in any guide books?

It's bobbins and only outdoor groups ever use it?

Clearly you have not done much climbing their with that comment. There are some quality lower grade routes on the main buttress, together with some lovely, and what I recall some hard, bouldering, all in all a great place to climb, and linked with trip to yellow wall across the way makes for a good session, and away from the honey pots close by

Does everywhere have to be in a guidebook?

The easy stuff on Lion Rock is well used by local outdoor education establishments and the area does have some hard bouldering and there's not a lot in between so you are unlikely to set off up a piece of rock and suddenly find yourself committed to an E3.

There are other areas in N. Wales where boulder problems and small routes haven't been recorded even though they've been climbed on for many years. A bit of exploration left for those who care and who aren't cared if someone's been there before.
