Hello and Welcome

Welcome to Snowdonia Mountain Guides we have lived and breathed rock climbing and mountaineering in Snowdonia for the last twenty years. It is the last thing we think about and night and the first thing that crosses our minds when we wake up. We have lived what can only be descibed as a dream lifestyle where the mountains and adventure are right on our doorstep and in doing so have come to know mountains and cliffs of North Wales intimately. What we offer isn't just a course in how to climb, navigate or ascend a mountain, instead we offer something more, an adventure into the unknown. An experience that we hope will help define your future enjoyment of the mountains of Wales and beyond.

Our guides are among the best there are in North Wales and our head coach prides himself on getting to know his clients, their abilities and what they want to achieve. In doing so it enables us to handpick routes to take you to your mental and physical limits under the watchful eye of our coaches and guides, and in the process give you one of the most exhilarating experiences of your life. We don't sell holidays, we sell mountain experiences.

Welsh Winter Trad Climbing

So having returned from Spain just in time for Blizzards to envelope the Costa Blanca. It seems appropriate that the the weather goods have shone on me for a couple of days rock climbing. After attempting tremadog I pulled the shear desperation card of heading to the Lleyn. Where Jez more...

Wintering the Sun

So many years ago now, probably when I was scatting around scotland trying to find some winter conditions to consolidate for my Winter ML. It finally struck me that we have three seasons in the UK now, Warm and Wet, Cold and Wet and a a very brief but satisfying more...
