Snowdonia has some of the highest, rocky and compact mountains
in Britain. It also has a rugged, craggy coastline and is within easy
reach of major UK cities. Climbing in Wales has a long history going
back over 150 years and there are literally thousands of climbs for
you to enjoy both in the mountains and on the coast. It's the variety of the climbing, and the sheer number of cliffs and climbs such a small area, that has made climbing in North Wales so famous.
Llanberis is the hub of Welsh climbing; it's tucked right in between the mountains
and the sea cliffs, at the foot of the highest mountain in England and
Wales, so it's perfectly placed for all the climbing and mountaineering the area has to offer.
