Guidebooks

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.

I found a set of car keys at the bottom of 'Chic'. If those belong to anyone I am going to deposit them at the Porthmadog Police Station today.

The footpath over the river which goes from the parking area to the reservoir road will be shut from 14th September onwards whilst work is carried out to replace the bridge. Please take the reservoir road from its start during this work.

Approach description in N Wales Classics misses a crucial turning in Tan y Grisiau. Turn left, climbing under the railway, just after you enter the village.
