  • Limestone climbing in the Eglwyseg Valley on the border of Wales, Cheshire and Shropshire.

    This fine area of quality limestone crags and quarries is often overlooked by those travelling to Wales to climb, however the majestic cliffs lining the Eglwyseg Valley, situated to the north of Llangollen, are as good as most other inland limestone crags in Britain. Added to this are some delightful quarries and smaller edges dotted around all set in a lovely landscape and often with a friendlier climate than the mountain crags further west. This second edition covers virtually all of the sport and trad climbing available in and around the Clwydian hills as well as the very best trad and sport climbs at the outlying Pandy Outcrop, Llanymynech Quarry and Pontesford Rocks. It has many more routes, bigger topos and more crags and it covers a wide grade span in both the trad and sport styles and has something to entice the vast majority of climbers of all abilities.

    The main cliffs vary from the small solid walls of the Dinbren and Pinfold cliffs, through the popular crags of the World's End area and onto to the imposing major venue of Craig Arthur. The majority of the climbing is trad with plenty on offer in the friendlier 'green spot' grades. In recent years there has been a substantial amount of bolting and re-gearing of existing routes which has left a wealth of high quality sport routes.

    Covers: Denbigh Castle Quarry, Ruthin Escarpment, Devil's Gorge, Maeshafn Quarry, Pot Hole Quarry, Minera Quarry, World's End, Craig Arthur, Twilight Zone, Pinfold Area, Monk's Buttress, Dinbren, Trevor Area, Independence Quarry, Ruabon Quarry, Pandy Outcrop, Llanymynech Quarry, Pontesford Rocks
