... was lovely, with water cascading over mossy rocks, and trees reaching, with bony fingers, out over the water. Although very different to our walk the day earlier, and not quite as 'fairy like' as I had expected, it was still wonderful to take it all in. We took the river path back, past where another river joins the fray, as well as seeing three kayakers pass through.

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!
