SERENGETI AREA


Serengeti has several areas with an excellent variety of climbing styles, as well as some classic routes that are rightly popular. The routes on Never Never Land Slab and The Serengeti Buttress have been climbed regularly for years. Seamstress is one of the most popular routes in the quarries. There are also some excellent harder multi-pitch routes in the giant pit of Twll Mawr.
