Crag features

Big cliff with a lot of history. The routes are long, so any climb is a serious undertaking, particularly if it starts raining. [Pierre Maxted]

Approach notes

Easy walk from Pen-y-pas.

North Wales Climbs

North Wales Climbs covers the best climbing from the whole of this huge and varied area. The book is modelled on the very popular West Country Climbs which set a new standard for selected climb guidebooks back in 2010. It contains all the routes from the 2010 publication North Wales Classics and many more routes and areas, with expanded descriptions and much bigger photo-topos. The book covers all the major mountain crags from Llanberis Pass, to Cloggy; and from Ogwen to the Carneddau. It also includes the Llanberis Slate quarries, Tremadog, the Moelwyns, the Gwynant Valley, Mid-Wales, Gogarth and the North Coast Limestone.

North Wales Classics

A significant addition to the Rockfax stable; North Wales Classics is a pocket-sized guide packs in hundreds of superb routes throughout the mountains of Snowdonia. From Tremadog to Tryfan, and everywhere in between, the book covers mid-grade routes on the best crags and features top-notch photo-topos and inspirational action shots taking you where you want to go.

Climbed on a fine day in September- were the only climbers on the crag-(not counting the 8 ravens) 10 great pitches/800 foot of lovely easy climbing-must rank as my best multi pitch experience.

Lliwedd has arguably the best (certainly the longest)mountaineering routes in England and Wales. Plenty of holds on the classic routes, but can be awkward in the wet. Old-fashioned and uncrowded - great!
