From the Brecon Beacons through The Valleys and onto the Coast, this guide contains 1500 of the best routes in South Wales. With Limestone escarpments overlooking the mountains, hidden Sandstone quarries for your first steps climbing outside or projecting hard classics, and sea cliffs offering either a big adventure or pleasant day out, it's hard to beat the variety of climbing on offer.
Featuring trad routes from Diff. to E6, sport routes from to F4 to F8a+, bouldering and Deep Water Solos, all made easy to find with topos & maps and packed full of inspirational photos throughout.
This is a guidebook like no other, a hybrid guide that combines the convenience of a select book with the completeness of a comprehensive guide. We've tucked into these pages the best climbing this area has to offer, with links to the South Wales Climbing Wiki (swcw.org.uk) that records everything else that's been climbed. This means no more compromises on book size or information volume and when new routes get put up and old ones fall down, the Wiki will keep you up to date and in the know.
