Slanting Buttress Ridge Route (D), doesnt seem to be in the pocket sized rockfax guide.

Is it in the larger version? Seems a shame but im willing to shed out the cash for another guide, you can never have too many rockfax guides...

There is a nice OUMC miniguide pdf for Slanting Buttress and a few other Welsh classics courtesy of Steve Broadbent on the following link:

A very nice route and goes in most conditions unlike most, if not all other routes on Lliwedd and I have fond memories of doing it one wet n' cold February years ago. Had a great time!

Hope this helps

"it's just a ridge overlooking a gully, how can you possibly go wrong by just following your nose"

we said, shortly before going off route...

Buy yourself the definitive Lliwedd guide at about a third of the price of the rockfax select book, loads of low grade routes!

Great guidebook, but better to read than to use to find routes ;-)

In reply to static266:

Whilst I'll grant you there are indeed loads of low grades routes on Lliwedd, there's not that many you'd actually want to do that it would justify the purchase of the select guide (unless you're after it for historic interest).

Also, have you ever tried using it to navigate your way up the crag? It makes an already trad experience all the more traditional. I'd heartily recommend buying a select - whichever select that might be - then once you've got Slanting Buttress Ridge Route/Lliwedd out your system go to another crag. There's much, MUCH better to be had out there...

No it isn't in the North Wales Climbs Rockfax, sorry.

Follow Rob's advice!

Plenty more classics to be had on Lliwedd. But please continue to send them somewhere else, I wouldn't want to have to queue ;-)

Steve Ashton has a good description and topo in his 100 Classic Climbs: North Wales. (There are several 'used' in v good condition on Amazon).
