North Wales

There are few areas that have as large a quantity of diverse climbing venues in such a small geographical area as North Wales. From adventurous sea cliff climbing to bolted limestone sport routes, through multi-pitch mountain missions to steep roadside bouldering, all can be easily accessed within an hour from the central mountain town of Llanberis. With the different venues located in areas each exposed to different climates it is often possible to find somewhere to climb, even if it is raining hard in the higher mountains. As well as excellent climbing, the area also attracts hundreds of thousands of walkers each year, who come to ascend Snowdon, Wales’ highest mountain, and to scramble on the peaks of the Glyders and the Carneddau.
