Deep, dark, and steeped in history, from King Arthur, to Mallory, Edwards, Kirkus, Brown, Whillans, Boysen, Livesey, Fawcett and onwards. Snowdonia has every kind of rock climbing imaginable; cragging and high mountain routes, mostly traditional, and some of them bloody hard and terrifying!
Landing at London Heathrow, rent a car and drive up the M25 north to the M40 (Oxford) then the M42 to the M5, which joins the M6, when you see the M54 go west to Shrewsbury (my home town). The M54 becomes the A5, an old Roman Road (quite driveable though!), through Llangollen, and eventually to Snowdonia. Get reservations for a B&B in Llanberis. It'll take all afternoon to get there if you land at LHR mid-day. You might want to split the drive somewhere nice and touristy, like Stratford-Upon-Avon, or better yet Shrewsbury.

Joe used a couple of pitons, and the previous generations just weren't into that.1) 120ft 5.10+.
