The sea cliffs of the Lleyn Peninsula provides some of the most adventurous climbing in North Wales. Some of the descents are said to be more gripping than the climbs themselves! Routes such as Vulture and Path to Rome at Cilan Head have long been recognised as classic adventure routes.
Once regarded as one of the most important cliffs in North Wales, Lliwedd has in more recent times languished well down the list of “must visit” crags. However a wave of exploration in the 1990s not repeated since the early part of the 20th Century now means that the cliff can boast modern climbs up to E4. The early history of climbing on Lliwedd is inextricably linked with some of the best climbers of their age (The Abraham brothers, Mallory,Winthrop Young) and with the early history of the Climbers’ Club.
