Ive got a decent guide book for climbing in snowdonia however it doesnt have a diagram / photo of Holly Tree wall in Cwm Idwal.

Im rubbish at following written instruction and was wondering if anyone had a diagram / photo in their book that illustrates the routes e.g. Lazarus, that they wouldnt mind emailing me please?

No but you really don't need one. It starts at the obvious ledge in the huge groove at the right-hand end of the terrace. Up the groove a bit, left a bit and up again.

The latest Climbers' Club Ogwen guide has a brilliant topo for Holly Tree Wall and Continuation Wall.

Im sure the Ogwen climbers guide is very good, but ive already got two books for north wales and cant justify 22+postage for another one

How do you think such topos get funded? If you wont buy the guides with the right information for the route you want climb why not try something else. As a local its hardly going to be a bad investment. If your strapped ask here or for someone willing to sell a second hand copy.
