The A55 Sport Climbs guidebook is a guide to the climbing areas along the A55 expressway corridor in North Wales between Llanddulas and Penmaenmawr.
Featuring 117 new routes, eighteen new boulder problems, six new crags and eight new sectors, the 2nd edition of the A55 Sport Climbs guide details the enormous amount of activity developing the sport climbing crags, and new climbing areas on the A55. Sport climbing is becoming increasingly popular in the UK, partly as British climbers are seduced by the delights of bolt clipping in the European sunshine, and also because they have come to enjoy the convenience of sport climbing, the easy route finding and technically challenging routes that are relatively safe when compared with traditional ones.
The crags in this guide are all easily accessible and it’s a fun area. There is good climbing here, much that is new, and it will repay full day visits as well as dipping in to bag a few routes on the way back from Anglesey or Snowdonia. With 280 routes ranging from F3 to F8b, its popularity is assured.
