The sky was clear, which was so great to see after the showers the day before. We were able to explore the beauty of Bewts-y-coed in the sun. We went for a walk, deciding on the Llyn Parc walk, up in the hills rather than along the river. The hills are littered with old abandoned lead mines and lakes and wonderful forests and streams. With the man in the info centre drawing us a rough map, we headed off on the path, following the distinct yellow markers, which ...
... as trees reached out over the rapids of the river, across wooden bridges and even passed through a thick fir forest. It was a truly amazing walk that Anne and I enjoyed so much. It was so surreal and so sensory that we had such a great time. Passing Miners Bridge, a wooden ramp over the white water of the river, we came to a new track that was more bogged by the rain.

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!
