Hi All,

Nice and simple, where's best to take a group top roping in Snowdonia? For what its worth they are 18-22, mixed ability, somewhere sunny is high up on my list!

Thanks

Jon

There's a few options, the Upper Tier at Tremadog might fit the bill though.

Lion rock is good, as is London crag (Craig Caseg Fraith Isaf)

Holyhead Mountain though not in Snowdonia. it's got something for most people and when It's sunny, it's pretty warm. Failing that, Jez's suggestion is best - stunning views from the top of the crag.

Pont y cromlech if it's nice weather... you'll get a more mountainous feel and can watch people on the multipitch crags all around you.

> Little Tryfan?


Haven't we had the discussion about Little Tryfan being a bit of a grey area where SPA is concerned?

You might have had it, but I didn't read it! Also, the OP didn't say anything about SPA?

people seem to ask this all the time.. there aren't really many good top rope areas in snowdonia. most groups in the area go to nearby holyhead mountain (not really a mountain)or tremadog upper teir.

The op asked about taking a group top roping. I could be forgiven for thinking that it might be work i.e. SPA work in which case Little Tryfan isn't described as single pitch in the guide book.

Thanks for your input, ended up going to the upper tier at Tremadog, seemed to be ideal, nice routes, good set ups and sunshine. Do like the look of all the other venues though so hopefully will check them out soon.

Thanks

Jon
