Llanberis is the diamond at the heart of the rugged North Wales scenery, hunkered down below Yr Wyddfa and Elidir Fawr it’s the epicentre of adventurous climbing in the UK. This small village and its surroundings have shaped the lives of many, and a historic and iconic climbing culture has grown from the mountains, quarries and sea cliffs that harbour some of the best traditional rock climbing in the world. Local climbers Zoe Wood and Lewis Perrin take us on a journey exploring how this place has impacted the lives of those who have lived, worked and played in this beautiful corner of Cymru over the last century. Featuring interviews and archives from some of the most prolific and colourful characters of UK climbing, Adra gently gifts us a sense of home, of community and belonging, and how the mountains of Cymru have conjured up the spirit of ‘hiraeth.’
