This book covers a large area west of Snowdon. Climbs range from Diffs that can be climbed in boots and take you to summit ridges to the more recent mega-routes of Pat Littlejohn and others on Cidwm and Craig y Bera. It also encompasses the roadside slab routes of Drws y Coed, some of the Joe Brown era's finest classics, and a good selection of winter gullies.Complete with historical, first ascents list and index, this is the definitive guide for an interesting and less-frequented area.
