North Wales Limestone: The Definitive Guide

North Wales Limestone: The Definitive Guide (2023) covers all the climbing along the North Wales coastal area - from Benllech in the west to The Devil's Gorge (near Mold) in the east, including the popular Great and Little Ormes of Llandudno. The book details nearly 2,000 routes, 600 more than the 2014 edition. The majority of the routes are well-equipped sport climbs, with the exception of the nationally significant trad venue of Craig y Forwyn.

This not-for-profit guidebook has been written by a team of local climbers who share a keen interest in showcasing the North Wales Limestone area with a much-needed update of the 2014 definitive guide. All profits from sales will be donated to access and environmental projects, including the North Wales Bolt Fund. This will enable the bolt fund to continue its vital support of volunteers in actively developing new climbs and maintaining existing climbs and their lower-offs.

The book features inspiring action photos from both amateur and professional climbing photographers, full-colour photo topos throughout, detailed route descriptions and approach maps, environmental and access information and a historical section with contributions from many of the area's most prolific climbing activists.
