Climb the classic multi-pitch routes in the Snowdonia National Park in Wales

This was our first outdoor climbing experience and we loved it. We can highly recommend James who planned a full day of climbing around our wishes. Thank you James for this unforgettable day.

1-day Rock climbing for beginners in Snowdonia, near Llanberis, Capel Curig or Tremadog

I had an amazing 2 days spent with James climbing. I was new to climbing and have now fallen in love with the sport thanks to James’ incredible teaching and adventures. James spent time getting to know me which allowed him to cater the course to what I wanted to achieve. The days flew by way too quickly as I was having too much fun. I will definitely be booking in some dates soon for some more adventuring and climbing. Thank you James :-) and I will definitely be recommending you to everyone I know.

Best time to visit

June to October is the warmest and driest period to enjoy a climbing trip. For reasonably good weather and less crowds, you should visit in April-May and September-October

Weather

Wales has an essentially maritime climate. Weather is often cloudy, cool, wet and windy, but mild most of the year. Snowdonia has a temperate maritime climate. Summers here are typically warm rather than hot, whereas winters are cool to cold. As in the rest of UK, the weather is unpredictable and you can see elements of all four seasons in one day

How to get there

You can easily reach Cardiff Airport from the rest of the UK and continental Europe. From outside Europe, there are no direct flights to Wales. The best option is flying into London (Heathrow or Gatwick) and taking a connection flight to Cardiff from there. Otherwise you could also continue overland from London. If you are visiting North Wales, Manchester is better placed
