Review
Produced to the CC's usual high standards. The guide covers a great variety of routes from classic mountain routes in the Moelwynion and on Cadair Idris to the wealth of grit routes on the moors of the Rhinogau and much more.

The great thing about this area is that it's largely unknown: it's possible to enjoy classic routes at all grades and not see another climber.

In fact perhaps you should ignore all I've said and stay away, so I don't have to share! [Matt Rees 7/05]
