North Wales

A trip to North Wales this week was rewarded with some fine weather despite the gloomy forecast and allowed us to cover some mountaineering techniques - multipitch climbing, shortening the rope, scrambling and multi - abseils e.t.c , with the blue skies , strong sunshine and warm rock it felt like the alps, especially on the beautiful ridges of the Ogwen valley.
After some long days a short cut down from Castle Y Gwynt via the col down to Llyn Bochlwyd seemed a good idea, but got us onto some very fresh loose rock confined in the steep upper gully - a place for extreme caution !
Thanks to Guy, Geraldine and Andrew for an enjoyable trip - a valuable experience all round.
