... if they had milk to mix it with. As I waited in excited anticipation, flashing back to a classic family story, I swear I heard the words, "WE SURE DOOO." I polished off my Bailey's and milk in seconds...cheers Aunt Beth :p (true story). Anyhow, I was picked up by a driver who held my name on a giant laminated paper. I was tempted to ask if he ever saw the parent trap (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kASXEE Tsu3M) but decided against it. We traveled ...
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. We were, once again, amazed at how fortunate we had been with weather, as it was raining again today as we drove to betws-y-coed, again thankful that all the distances were so short and the driving so little.
We spent a couple of days with Margaret, Mick, Elizabeth and Holly (Robert's sister, brother-in-law, daughter and grand-daughter) in a cottage in a small village called LllanfairTalhaiarn, 5 miles south of Abergele.

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!
