Parisella's Cave

Published August 1st, 2012

This cave can be found on the Great Orme in Llandudno, Wales. For years this little gem has served purpose for those at the hard end of the game, who like to push the more difficult moves can be found here. People like Ben Moon, Jerry Moffatt, Johnny Dawes, however the new breed of climber pushes an average grade of V12, although a biggie in here is Silk cut which weighs in at V14 Gareth Parry, Pete Robbins, Mark Katz to name a few have climbed to these grades.

These guys are at the top of their game, and their game is extreme climbing, especially hard routes or boulder problems particulary in Wales.
