This is our first full guide to North Wales Slate and covers the amazing quarries near Llanberis famous for their technical run-out slabs and, more recently, for the wealth of sport climbing. It is also famous for the bizarre and spectacular rock formations that give a unique climbing environment.

We have covered ‘the slate’ before in North Wales Climbs but this is a selective guide. This time we are covering everything – that includes all the classics of course but also a few routes that you probably wouldn’t want to repeat!

The full guide is available on Rockfax Digital

North Wales Slate follows a long history of excellent independent guidebooks to the area. This book gives comprehensive coverage of all the routes developed in the Slate Quarries at the time of printing. It includes the major routes but also the minor routes and less-visited crags and walls. The route information is covered with large detailed crag photographs taken using the latest technology to give unprecedented clear coverage. The detailed maps and overview photographs make navigating this complex area easier than ever.
