Home to mountains and craggy peaks, Wales is great for climbers.


For beginners, Snowdonia in North Wales is a veritable paradise, with some of the most accessible areas in the United Kingdom. There are lots of different types of climbing here, so even if you are more experienced you will find something to challenge your abilities.


Check out the sea cliffs of Gogarth on the island of Anglesey, a truly spectacular location for climbing. To the east, you’ll find the limestone areas around Llandudno and Llangollen, the main sport climbing areas in the country.


In the south, check out Pembroke. There are lots of different routes with limestone and sandstone rock. The sea cliff climbs require an abseil, as well as good knowledge of the tides, but it’s worth the effort to scale the cliffs.


South of the Brecon Beacons you will find amazing sport climbing around Newport, Cardiff, Abergavenny and Merthyr Tydfil. There are limestone outcrops and sandstone quarries, as well as some spectacular crags.


Wales is a rugged country with good climbing all over the place, so you’ll never be far away from getting your fix. The only question is where to go.
