A55 Sports Climbs: North Wales guidebook

Six sport climbing crags between Junctions 16 and 23 on the A55 are all a short hop from the expressway, only 1½ hours from Manchester and ¾ of an hour by car from Llanberis and Gogarth. Easy route finding and technical climbing with the relative safety of bolted routes makes for a fun day out. It's a great way to bag a few routes on the way back from Anglesey or Snowdonia, or enjoy a full day of varied and fun climbing with short walk-ins. This new 72 page guidebook includes over 20 full colour photo topos.
