A trip to wales would not be complete without a session or two spent here - so take the time and enjoy.

When the mountains are rainy Tremadoc is a good option. The rock is granite, similar to Taquitz or Suicide. Don't miss Eric Jones' Cafe - camping is available here also.

The rock at Tremadog is not actually granite, as it's much finer in texture with none of the crystals you find in granite. It is a volcanic rock: augite-dolerite according to the geological notes in a guidebook written in the days when guidebooks included such background.
