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.

As a lot of people have already mentioned; the best approach is to continue along the track, as far as the end passing the dam and the bothy. Then continue contouring the lake by the shore along a good sheep track. Follow this all the way round, where the sheep track veers away from the lake on to very boggy ground (and towards the minor crag with e2-e5 routes) continue contouring faint sheep track heading for the end of the big spur and nearly and island, crossing a small stream and through bracken and damp ground (still by the lake). When you get to the spur, stay just out of the bog, contouring the spur, passing a small fallen down hafod. Follow the sheep path along and then right up on to a col on top of the spur. From here aim straight for the crag, in the direction on a big square heather topped boulder (sheep paths, dry). Then pass another big boulder and continue up on to the scree. Climb the scree to the base of the crag. 1hr?
