(Windows phone8 in development)
A select climbing guidebook to North Wales authored by Mark Reeves which concentrates on the classic rock routes of the area from the sea cliffs of Gogarth to the mountains Snowdonia. The first edition of the guide contained over 650 routes with 140 topos covering 7 major climbing areas in North Wales: Gogarth, Llanberis Pass, Slate, Ogwen Valley, Tremadog, Moelwyns and a handful of routes on North Wales Limestone.
In the 2nd edition we added almost 100 more routes, 16 new topos and updated several of the existing ones, taking the opportunity to split the more complex crags e.g. Tremadog into smaller chunks, adding a few new crags and also re-organising the Gogarth section into more logical sections.
The latest edition added over 50 extra routes and added Pant Ifan and Upper Tier crags to Tremadog, North Stack Wall to Gogarth, Scimitar Ridge to Llanberis Pass and added Craig Dorys to a new Lleyn section, incorporating Trwyn Maen Melyn (previously featured in the Tremadog section). We have also revamped 123 of the existing topos to make use of the larger screen on the iPhone 5
Details of these changes can be found in the supporting North Wales Rock website which Mark has also put together in addition to the app. This site contains full information on the guide itself and the areas, crags and routes that it covers. Route information is also covered in the 'About' section of the taster app along with contact and feedback links.
