Snowdonia, containing some of the finest and most accessible cliffs in Britain, needs no introduction to rock climbers. This new Constable guide, in the handy pocket size, with flexible PVC cover, offers over 500 of the region's best-quality climbs, including outstanding routes from little-known Central Wales and the Lleyn Peninsula, as well as introducing recent developments at Rhoscolyn, Great Orme and on the North Wales Slate. The book has been thoroughly researched and tested, and provides detailed route descriptions incorporating standard grading as well as a star system. These, together with the lavish use of excellent photo-diagrams, make the climbs easy to locate and follow. The book also offers information about where to eat and drink, and which buses serve each section described. "Rock climbing in Snowdonia", though biased towards the lower- and middle- grade climber, contains many harder modern classic climbs as well. It will appeal to the young activitist in search of technical difficulty within easy reach of his car, as well as to the more traditional climber who prefers moderate routes sited away up in the mountains.
