A Wet Walk

... 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. The going became tougher and less scenic. Eventually we reached a small hut and cut up towards the road, ...

Tryfan and Glyders

... up! Reaching Glyder Fach, the plateau of which is strewn with big boulders, we were welcomed with another great view.

Next we continued to Glyder Fawr, before making our descent down. We were now starting to lose light, and this shady side was covered in snow. Hmmm a precarious descent. Using some of Simons mountaineering skills, we managed very carefully to partially abseil across ...

Climbing Tryfan Bach

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 spent the day today at Idwal Slab. It's a beautiful walk in through the valley before we were greeted by the impresive rock wall. My first taste of multi pitch climbing, and I loved it! A great sense of achievement as we kept climbing higher and higher, reaching even more spectacular views. I had a bit of a mare at one point, attempting to tackle a VS on lead. I ...

Snowdon Summit

... summit point. It was very windy and we were basically in the clouds so could see... nothing!

No time for a break as it was too cold, so we began the descent down. This was harder than coming up and I spent some of it sliding on my bum! Past the icy top we were able to continue normally, this time opting for the Miners track to take us back down. This passed down by the lake and after the initial steep descent, it was a nice stroll back to the car.
