Gogarth

Gogarth
The name Gogarth has put the fear of God into many rock climbers over the years as the tales of adventure on loose and scary terrain has put many people off. However, Gogarth is not all about stomach churning, adrenalin-inducing loose rock and fear.

Whilst Gogarth is known for its adventurous routes it is also home to some lesser challenges. It is these along with many of the classic routes that we use on our climbing courses. Whether it be a private rock climbing guiding or a lEad Climbing Coaching.

Mark Reeves the owner of Snowdonia Mountain Guides thinks Gogarth s one of the finest adventure trad climbing venues in the UK. Given the aim of many of our routes is to develop your trad climbing and the fact that the weather is often amazing over on the lowlands of Anglesey, means you might well find yourself on Castell Helen, Wen Zawn, the Range or the much more sedate Holyhead Mountain.
