A55 Sport Climbs North Wales 3rd Edition
The A55 Sport Climbs North Wales 3rd Edition guide book has 157 new routes, six new crags and eight new sectors. In total there's 280 routes included ranging from F2 to F8c to cater to all abilities.
In recent years there has been an enormous amount of activity in developing the sport climbing crags and new climbing areas along the A55 expressway corridor in North Wales between Llanddulas and Penmaenmawr. Sport climbing is becoming increasingly popular in the UK, partly because British climbers are becoming seduced by the delights of bolt clipping in the sun in Europe and have come to enjoy the convenience of sport climbing, the easy route finding and technically challenging routes that are relatively safe when compared with traditional ones.
The crags in this guide are all easily accessible and it's a fun area. There is much good climbing here, much that is new and it will repay full day visits as well as dipping in and bagging a few routes on the way back from Anglesey or Snowdonia.
