Mark Reeves enjoying a day out at the Cromlech

Welcome to Snowdonia Mountain Guides we have lived and breathed rock climbing and mountaineering in Snowdonia for the last twenty-five years. It is the last thing we think about at night and the first thing that crosses our minds when we wake up. We have lived what can only be described as a dream lifestyle where the mountains and adventure are right on our doorstep. 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 you and your future enjoyment of the mountains of Wales and beyond. We handpick routes to take you to your mental and physical limits under the watchful eye of our coaches and guides. In the process, we will give you one of the most exhilarating experiences of your life. We don’t sell holidays, we sell mountain adventures.

Scrambling Week

North ridge of Tryfan

I have just spent a great week working with Tom, who wanted to move into mountaineering terrain. So we did a day of rope work and rock climbing at the upper tier on Monday. Followed by the great Grade 1 Crib Lem spur on tuesday. The next day we went for grade three scrambling on Wrinkled Tower on the west face Tryfan and down the south ridge and the Heather Terrace. 

Finally we let Tom loose on the sharp end as he lead up Bastow Groove on the East Face a great low end Grade 2 to get him used to the rope work. We then descended a little below the North Tower and climbed up the excellent Notch Arete.

On my day off I went climbing to Castell Helen and did a couple of routes in the sun.
