Twll Mawr Gwynedd, WALES
Climbs 59 – Rocktype Slate – Altitude 300m a.s.l – Faces NW
Not for the faint-hearted or soft-headed. Some amazing routes, single and multi-pitch up to 219- the nearest Britain really has to Yosemite. (Leo Houlding spent a lot of time here.) Includes The Quarryman (E8 7a) but also many other easier routes. Some loose rock - helmets advised.
From Bus Stop Quarry continue along the path, beyond Dalis and Never Never Land. The huge vista of rock should be obvious as you go on.
