Guidebooks

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.

Agree with comments above re parking being marshy! Wish i'd read this first... Also, description for Oriole in N Wales Rock guide is mis-leading. Don't move left a metre below the overlap. Go straight up past the peg...much easier, and much better protected.

Parking on right after gate can be marshy - I nearly got stuck, watch out! The abseil had new rope on my visit of April 2011. BTW an idyllic spot, worth going out of your way for...
