Snowdonia : Mountain Walks and Scrambles Rockfax cover  © Rockfax
We are very excited to announce a new Rockfax book albeit one that you may need to wait until next year to use. Snowdonia : Mountain Walks and Scrambles covers an amazing area of North Wales starting with Snowdon and stretching out over the Glyders, the Carneddau, the Moelwyns and further afield including the Nantlle Ridge, the Rhinogs and Cadair Idris.

The book is aimed at those making their first steps into mountain walking up to experienced scramblers after some of the classic ridges, gullies and low-grade rock climbs in the Snowdonia area. It uses all the modern techniques that Rockfax have pioneered over the years to give the most inspiring and clearest coverage available. This includes beautiful and detailed maps, dramatic expansive aerial photographs, detailed text descriptions and stunning action photography.
