North Wales Winter

North Wales Winter covers the best and most reliable venues for winter climbing in North Wales including the classic gullies of the Trinity Face and the rarely-formed but absolutely essential ice climbs of Cascade and Central Icefall Direct in the Llanberis Pass. Also covered are the major ice lines of Cwm Idwal and the modern mixed climbs of Clogwyn Du and the huge cliff of The Black Ladders which rivals anything in Scotland and is home to long and committing adventures that give a full and tiring day out. This App version has all you need to find and assess the best routes whenever they are in 'nick'.

North Wales Climbs

North Wales Climbs covers the best climbing from the whole of this huge and varied area. The book is modelled on the very popular West Country Climbs which set a new standard for selected climb guidebooks back in 2010. It contains all the routes from the 2010 publication North Wales Classics and many more routes and areas, with expanded descriptions and much bigger photo-topos. The book covers all the major mountain crags from Llanberis Pass, to Cloggy; and from Ogwen to the Carneddau. It also includes the Llanberis Slate quarries, Tremadog, the Moelwyns, the Gwynant Valley, Mid-Wales, Gogarth and the North Coast Limestone.

From Tremadog to Tryfan, and everywhere in between, the book covers mid-grade routes on the best crags and features top-notch photo-topos and inspirational action shots taking you where you want to go.

My son and I climbed inside the Devils Kitchen on Sunday 27/8/06. We intended to climb Twll Du (V Diff) but instead chose Night Moves (E3). Once we found a variety of kit left we assumed this was going to be an exciting climb, we would not be disappointed. We managed to climb in four pitches with one pitch a hanging belay. It was difficult to hear and respond to calls as the volume of water cascading down made it rather difficult. The atmoshere within this cauldron of excitment was further enhanced due to the dampness, constant level of concentration and the colourful shouts from both climbers. A climb which will be remembered for some time to come. Excellent.
