Rockfax North Wales Slate Guide

One Size

All about this product



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! It is up-to-date and contains the new developments since the previous guidebook published by Ground Up in 2011. These developments have mostly been new sport routes and many at amenable grades.
