A guide to the climbing on the south side of the A5, based around the ever-popular Tryfan and Cwm Idwal areas, including some 140 new routes climbed since the last guide, and many ‘rediscovered’ older climbs. New crags include the Eastern Cliffs of Gallt yr Ogof, Skyline Buttress, the location of some of the hardest climbing in Wales like McHaffie's E9 Mission Impossible.
Similar in format to the well-received Llanberis guide published 2009, with all-colour photodiagrams, photoplans and shots to drool over. It has bouldering sections and a graded list to argue with. The history section includes interesting short biographical notes on the leading activists over the years. Some of the easier climbs, often climbed as scrambles are also highlighted.
The guide now also includes the climbing on the north side of the A4086 between Pen y Gwyrd and Capel Curig, and for the first time the excellent climbing on the Creigiau Llynnau Mymbyr (the Ricks and Racks) is described in detail, although these crags have been climbed on for years by Plas y Brenin parties.
Ogwen replaces half of the double-volume Ogwen and Carneddau, published in 1993. The 1993 Carneddau section is available as a free download from on the Carneddau & Crafnant page.
