Contributed by ianstevens Jan/15 - This public hilllist has been seen 4,727 times

A list of routes you should really do in your time with the AMC. Mainly in North Wales, but some further afield - all can be done within a weekend trip from Aber. All of the routes bar one have been done (or at least seen a good dogging) by someone in the club at some-point, and some may have even had first ascents by (ex) club members.

It probably goes without saying a few of these have been done in wellies, and one of them hasn't been done by an AMC member and is just there to make the list nearly impossible to complete.
