Rock climbing courses and guiding at Gogarth.


Gogarth is an incredible collection of sea cliffs, stretching over 3 miles in length and packed with steep climbing that demands a high level of commitment and competence. Situated on the north-west corner of the ancient druids’ island of Anglesey, know to the Welsh as Ynys Mon, you could be climbing above a calm sea that sparkles in the sunshine, or gazing in awe at waves that can crash over half way up the 100m high cliffs.

The South Stack area of Gogarth is home to the airy overhangs of Yellow Wall, the more amenable climbs of Castell Helen, the intimidating routes of Red Wall and the amazing curly-wurly shapes of Mousetrap Zawn. On the way to the North Stack area, you pass the more relaxed, inland climbing of Holyhead Mountain before reaching the relatively easy access to the Upper Tier, the tidal access traverse to the engaging climbing of the Main Cliff and the top-quality climbs of Wen Zawn, including the popular classic, A Dream of White Horses.
