From the Brecon Beacons through The Valleys and onto the Coast, this guide contains 1500 of the best routes in South Wales in the area around Swansea, Cardiff and Newport. 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 and maps and packed full of inspirational photos throughout.

This is also a rather unique guidebook in that it is a hybrid guide that combines the convenience of a selected climbs book with the completeness of a comprehensive guide. The actual book showcases the best climbing this area has to offer, but there are 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.
