Description

The sea cliffs of Craig Gogarth run along the northwest corner of the island of Anglesey, reached on the A5 by crossing the Menai Straits on the world's first great suspension bridge, built in 1826 by Thomas Telford. The A55 Britannia Bridge is also worthy of mention.

If the weather is wet and rainy in Snowdonia it may be worth it to head up to Gogarth, where the great sea cliffs will certainly get your attention and commitment - below 5.9 climbers need not apply.

The Main Cliff of Gogarth offers some of the very best traditional climbing in the UK - amazing routes with incredible atmosphere.

If you are visiting the UK and climb trad then don't miss out this crag.

Killer routes include Positron (E5/5.11d), Hunger (E5/5.12a), Citadel (E5/5.12a) and Skinhead Moonstomp (E6/5.12c).

There are lots of easier routes in the mid 5.10s as well.

There are crag topos for climbing at Gogarth on my website.

There is also a really good new guide to all the northern Gogarth crags by GroundUp.

If you are coming to the area don't hesitate to contact me if you need more information/partners etc.

Kind Regards
