Guided Climbing in North Wales

Guided Climbing in North Wales gives you the perfect opportunity to climb some of the many classic routes of North Wales. Whatever grade you climb at there are many fantastic climbs throughout N Wales. Most people are familiar with many of the mountain routes but fewer are familiar with the sea-cliffs of Gogarth. If you have never experienced climbing above the crashing sea or watching seals bobbing in the surf then you are definitely missing a great part of the uniqueness of British climbing.

Where ever you want to climb let some-one else do all the hard work so you can maximise the enjoyment.

Enchainments – A popular idea for guided days out is to link a number of routes of a similar standard on different crags. There are many places in Snowdonia where finishing one route leads naturally to the base of another crag. It gives a great sense of journeying through the area and can have a real mountaineering flavour as well as ensuring that you maximise the number of pitches climbed during a day. The following is a fantastic article that gives a few ideas of the sort of thing we mean. Feel free to come up with your own or ask us for other suggestions:
