Review

Edited by Bob Moulton, this is the second edition of the climbing guide to the Llyn Peninsula in North West Wales. It includes historical, nature conservation and bird restriction notes, together with the usual index of climbs and list of first ascents. Crags are mainly though not exclusively coastal including Cilan Head on the south side with its massive intimidating roofs and routes up to E7, together with mid-grade climbs of up to 700ft. on the north westerly facing shore of the peninsula. A comprehensive guide to a relatively newly-developed area where there is still potential for new routes of varying difficulty. [Richard Lewis]
