Follow the main road west along the North Wales coast and cruise into the tourist centre of Llandudno. Here you can sample the strenuous pleasures of major limestone crags or deviate to the easier pleasures of the tourist centres.

The major crags of Craig Y Forwyn and the Ormes are described in this guide to the North Wales limestone crags.

Although published in 1983 this guide is still the major source of information to this area.
