North Wales Climbs – This Autumn

We are really pleased to announce a new Rockfax guidebook. North Wales Climbs is being written by Jack Geldard, Mark Reeves and Mark Glaister and is due for publication this Autumn.

It is being modelled on the very popular West Country Climbs with the intention being to cover all the major crags in the area from the Ormes, through the mountains and on to Gogarth. You can read more detail about what the book covers on the book page here.

Progress has been amazing over the last couple of months with the team able to take advantage of some surprisingly good weather windows. On a glorious Saturday a group of us got up early to trek up to the Cromlech in morning light and capture the cover photograph of Alexandra Schweikart on Left Wall.

Your Feedback

Since there are so many of us with warm memories about climbing in North Wales, it is a great time to give your feedback on grades, stars and general route comments. The book page here has links to most of the crags being included in the guide so, let us know what you think before the book goes to press.
