The Tremadog area is particularly renowned for its popular 'rain shadow' crags. The popularity of these fine crags, with their sunny disposition and striking lines on golden dolerite, has understandably eclipsed the wide variety of outlying crags, but there are many gems to be discovered throughout this region by discerning climbers who are willing to walk a little further (or a bit further again) from the road.

The stats: 39 crags in 9 areas, including the ever popular main Tremadog cliffs; 376 pages describing over 847 climbs; more than 1300 pitches (over 28,500 metres of climbing!

Complete with 114 colour photo-topos, 30 photoplans , 84 action photos maps, graded list and index. Complementary online database of routes and first ascent details
