This pocket sized book has over 340 routes of all grades, including the very best of the winter routes in Wales.
The easy to carry pocket-sized format means that taking the book up the route with you is easier than ever, and the full page, full colour topo-photographs make route finding a doddle.
The book covers loads of routes at all the major venues, mainly focussing between VDiff to E3, yet it still manages to squeeze in a few Mods and Diffs as well as a smattering of desperate challenges up to E9.
The book covers not only the high mountain crags but also a selection of lower valley venues as well as some previously over looked gems such as Little Tryfan and the Upper Tier of Tremadog.
The vast area covered includes Ogwen, Llanberis, Tremadog, Cwm Silyn, Carneddau, Lliwedd as well as some outlying crags loosely based around Betws y Coed and Blaenau Ffestiniog.
The winter section covers the Trinity Face on Snowdon, the Cwm Idwal icefalls, the Cascade area of the Llanberis Pass, the behemoth of the Black Ladders as well as the mixed climbing venue of Clogwyn Du.
