Whilst the beauty of Snowdonia may be legendary, climbers are attracted by the diverse challenges on offer. Both mountains and coast offer all kinds of climbing opportunities for both beginner and enthusiast.
For many years the region has attracted climbers from all over the world, indeed, Sir Edmund Hillary and his Everest conquest team trained on Snowdonia's defiant slopes. From the most awesome sheer face to a beginner's incline the dramatic terrain of Snowdonia Mountains and Coast ensures endless challenges for climbers of all levels.
From the cliffs of the Llŷn Peninsula coastline to the height of Eryri (the Welsh word for Snowdonia) the variety of climbing opportunities in the Snowdonia Mountains and Coast region is immense. The most popular locations include the towering cliff faces at Tremadog and Llanberis Pass.
However, numerous indoor walls such as the fantastic Beacon Climbing Centre, Caernarfon, provide excellent facilities and tuition for beginners as well as for those more advanced climbers who just wish to keep the momentum going during adverse weather conditions.
