North Wales Winter

North Wales Winter covers the best and most reliable venues for winter climbing in North Wales including the classic gullies of the Trinity Face and the rarely-formed but absolutely essential ice climbs of Cascade and Central Icefall Direct in the Llanberis Pass. Also covered are the major ice lines of Cwm Idwal and the modern mixed climbs of Clogwyn Du and the huge cliff of The Black Ladders which rivals anything in Scotland and is home to long and committing adventures that give a full and tiring day out. This App version has all you need to find and assess the best routes whenever they are in 'nick'.
