... our knowing, had been running parallel to us all the time. Following the road, we rounded a corner and were faced with the Swallow Falls Inn, a pub, with a hygiene rating of 3, the lowest we've seen so far. As we made our way down to Swallow Falls, we were faced with the disastrous discovery of a ticket turnstile, you had to pay £1.50 for entrance. We had no money, our wallets were back in the car. Helpless, we took the road back to Betws-y-Coed, and, whether the rain just started or ...

The day ended with another good meal at the Groes Inn and watching the sheep dash around the pastureland behind the Inn before settling down in their penned area for the night.

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 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!
