... to get started at the school. Followed by module registration.
... 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, ...

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!
