Brecon Ice Climbing

The cold snap has brought some limited roadside icefall cragging to S.Wales, with a number of short routes just about in condition, the truck was reluctant to brave the icy roads up to Torpantau Falls, so Craig -y-Fro was visited, with some ice bouldering right out of the layby, and the main falls within 200mtrs of the road, we weren't surprised to find at least three teams chipping away at the brittle ice - all good fun at this time of the year; however, the trip home became a bit of an epic with roads blocked and very slow traffic after a couple of hours heavy snowfall took everyone by surprise - hopefully the climbers from Somerset made it home O.K
