The Tremadog area is particularly renowned for its popular ‘rain shadow’ crags cradling the village named after the famous Victorian engineer William Madocks, who built the sea wall that drained the valley floor in 1811. The popularity of these fine crags, with their sunny disposition and striking lines on golden dolerite, has understandably eclipsed the wide variety of outlying crags, but there are many gems to be discovered throughout this region by discerning climbers who are willing to walk a little further (or a bit further again) from the road.
