Hello and Welcome to the Slate Wiki. Again like its sister sites the Gogarth , North Wales Limestone, Welsh Winter Climbs , Tremadog and Trevor Area (Clwyd) Wiki's this site has been set up to provide up to date information on the exsisting routes. Since the evolution of other wiki's it seemed appropriate to offer the same interactive service for the Dinorwig Slate Quarries.

The sort of imformation we are looking for is current state of play on route descriptions, pegs, grades and bolts. Something that since the start of a re-bolting campaign has been very dynamic. Any new information will also help with the forthcoming guidebook that is currently being written by the Ground Up Team.
