Rock Climbing

Based in the heart of Snowdonia, Plas y Brenin is surrounded by some of the finest rock climbing routes in Britain, from the towering sea cliffs of Gogarth and exposed mountain crags of the Llanberis Pass, to the inviting slabs of Cwm Idwal and Tremadog.

This unique position in North Wales and the Snowdonia National Park gives us access to great variety for all ability levels. It also means we can be flexible, adapting our rock climbing course content and location to suit both the weather pattern and your individual needs. Ultimately, this all means you are guaranteed to get the most from your time on our rock climbing courses.
