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.
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.
'Little Tryfan Arete' and 'Tryfan Bach Scramble' are exactly the same route. With both routes offering variations which draw closer/onto the arÍte. jimorothy - 28/Apr/15
Agree with other comments that this is a superb place for beginners to learn on. However, its also very polished and placing good protection is difficult so I would suggest that the grading in uptodate books is about right - more VDiff/HVDiff than Mod now IMHO jester69 - 02/Apr/12
I was climbing here with a group on saturday 15th October and one of my group picked up a stack of gear left behind. If it belongs to you let me know and i will try and get it back to you. kivi - 17/Oct/11
Was introduced to climbing here a few years ago. Easter 2011 saw me introducing my partner, luckylegs to climbing outdoors and me to leading and multipitching. Fantastic slab. Neil Watson - 11/May/11
Lots of mod and diff cracks but there is some severe stuff between them. Also great fun to watch the instructors leading groups :) Neil Kazimierz Sheridan - 21/Sep/09

Fantastic crag to either cut your teeth multipitching or introducing a climbing partner to it. The rock is sound with good gear placements and an aspect that catches afternoon sun. Steve Malsher - 02/Aug/04
