Review

A full colour guide illustrated with 65 photodiagrams and a fine selection of action photos.

The text has been comprehensively updated, with details of over 50 new routes climbed since the last guide and revised assessments of the popular classics where necessary.

The guide contains descriptions of the most popular bouldering areas in the Pass written by local bouldering guru Simon Panton. There is a graded list and a glossary of climbing terms in Welsh.

The book lays a strong emphasis on encouraging climbers to visit the lesser known crags. Thirty two of the photodiagrams illustrate crags that have not had diagrams in previous guidebooks, and a light-hearted Alternative Llanberis List is given of recommended climbs off the beaten track. There are eight photoplans, complemented by both area and detail maps, which show the location and approaches to all the cliffs.
