Snowdonia and North Wales has everything for the rock climber. Classic remote multi pitch mountain routes, roadside multi pitch crags, single and multi pitch sea cliffs (usually sunny) sport routes, bouldering and easy single pitch crags all to learn the ropes on. All of these are within a 45 minutes.
Due to the mountains and the rain shadow effect, dry rock can almost! always be found locally. Gradient Adventure offers climbing courses from beginner to expert.
