FAQs: Rock Climbing in Wales

What should I know about Rock Climbing Wales?

Wales is a country part of the island of Great Britain and of the United Kingdom. Apart from the classic rock climbing locations, the Gower, to the south of Swansea, is the second largest rock climbing area in South Wales. North Wales also offers a great depth and variety of bouldering. Wales is also a scrambling mecca and a hiking paradise. It  also boasts some fantastic beaches, very popular among surfers. The heart of the Welsh culture is full of Celtic myths, castles and historical legends. A trip to Wales wouldn’t be complete without visiting a traditional pub, where you can enjoy live music, great food and beer.

Why should I choose Wales for my Rock Climbing adventure?

The unique scenery

Wales is a land of rocky and mountainous landscapes of wild natural beauty, with plenty of small peaks, beautiful green rolling hills, spectacular sea cliffs, lakes and rivers. This small country offers plenty of options for outdoor lovers.

Great variety

There is no shortage of great rock climbing possibilities in Wales. Take advantage of single and multi-pitch routes, bouldering and exciting sea cliff climbing, with options for all levels, from beginners to experienced climbers.

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.

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.
