This book covers a large area west of Snowdon, including Llechog, Castell Cidwm, Craig y Bera, Cwm Silyn, Cwm Pennant, and Moel Hebog. Climbs range from Diffs that can be climbed in boots and take you to summit ridges to the more recent mega-routes of Pat Littlejohn and others on Cidwm and Craig y Bera. It also encompasses the roadside slab routes of Drws y Coed, some of the Joe Brown era’s finest classics, and a good selection of winter gullies.

This volume completes the extensive project of documenting the outlying areas south and west of Snowdon begun with the recent Tremadog and Meirionnydd guides.
