Tremadog is a saviour of rock climbing in Snowdonia, found on the south edge of the Northern range of mountains in Snowdonia the weather is often much finer than further into the mountains. As such it is an extremely popular choice as a destination for our courses and many other climbers.
Sunny Tremadog is something of a honeypot when the weather elsewhere is not so good. But the weather is not the only good thing here, the rock climbing is excellent as well. With some more positive climbing experiences with good gear on solid rock.
Classics of all grades abound this area and the escarpment of Tremadog runs for several miles, although not all of the edge is climbable. There are several main crags, all of which are similar although it seems the further west you go the less crowded the crags.
Crags and Buttress
Each major area is made up of several different crags, buttress, ridges or faces. You can find out more about these individual areas below.
