Book review: Parisella?s Cave


Active member
Parisella?s Cave by Simon Panton  2009  16 pp, 4 colour photos, many B&W photos.

When I saw this book advertised on Ebay, I got very excited.  A caving book which had escaped my knowledge for 10 years.  What a find!  But I was robbed.  It was a climbing book.  Parisella?s Cave is a rock shelter on the Great Orme, Llandudno in North Wales.  Probably discovered when the Marine Drive was blasted out of the cliffs and of potential archaeological interest. 

This hard-core and very popular bouldering venue which has many devotees and has a great reputation for hard, very hard or just plain tendon snapping boulder problems.  Over 100 bouldering problems are described.  Highly recommend on the many rainy days as there is always something that will be dry, although some areas are susceptible to seepage and moist sea air.
