Another travelling day! After another very filling breakfast, I packed up, checked out of my guest house and made my way to Llandudno train station. I had a little bit of a wait before my train, but I much prefer that over being late and having to run.
My first train of the day was on the Conwy Valley Line, which runs through the heart of the Snowdonia region to the slate mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. The trip takes about an hour and a half, but there's ...
... to look around the associated museum. The Talyllyn railway is a narrow gauge track originally used for hauling slate from the quarry back to the main line. It celebrates it 150 years of existance this year. It was privately owned when the slate operation closed in the 1940's, After the owner died it was operated as a tourist railway by a volunteer preservation society (the first of its kind in the world).

Bobs big brekky kicked the day off to a great start: a full English breakfast with a new addition, a Scottish scone, which is similar to a piece of flat pita bread and tastes wonderful.

Keen to do some more route bagging in preparation for our SPA we headed to Craig Caseg Fraith Isaf, which had lots of fairly short routes for our grades. We had a lovely sunny day and managed to get lots of routes done. After some lunch we moved on to Tryfan Bach, a nice big slab of rock taking 2 pitches to sail up. I think I placed 1 bit of gear up for the entire climb! It was so slabby you could pretty much just scramble up it hands and feet. Another good days climbing!
... and desperately managed to haul myself up. I laid on the rock hugging it for some time before I set up my stance to bring Simon up. Phew, close call!
We had some epic climbs up before the day wore on and we needed to think about coming back down. A bit of scrambling, an abseil and downhill walk brought us back to the bottom. Woohoo, great days climbing!
