North Wales Limestone: The Definitive Guide covers all of the climbing along the North Wales A55 coastal corridor–from Benllech in the west to The Devil's Gorge (near Mold) in the east, including the popular Great and Little Ormes of Llandudno. The book details nearly 1,000 sport routes and over 500 trad routes in this varied climbing area, including the nationally significant trad venue of Craig y Forwyn.
This not-for-profit guidebook has been written by a team of local climbers who all share a keen interest in showcasing the North Wales limestone area with a much-needed definitive guide. All profits from sales will be donated to the bolt fund which has enabled the high proportion of routes in this area that rely on fixed equipment to be equipped with good quality fixed gear–The North Wales Bolt Fund.
The book features inspiring action photos from leading climbing photographers, full-colour photo topos throughout, detailed route descriptions and approach maps, graded list, environmental and access information and a historical section with contributions from many of the area's most prolific pioneers.
