... had protected us earlier, we got soaked, arriving back in the village wet from out travels. Lunch was in the Village, before we were finally able to check in at the B&B, where the complimentary home-made Welsh Cakes in our room were delicious. That evening we wandered the shops as it grew dark, having dinner at the local Pub before returning back to our room and watching the Champions League on TV. A chance to rest up and look forward to exploring Betws-y-Coed a little more ...

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!

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!
