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.

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!
