6 members arrived at the Garth Farm campsite late Wednesday night, dawn revealed ice on the tents but the sun soon warmed us up.
Conditions were right for some proper mountaineering and we eagerly traipsed up to the Heather Terrace on Tryfan. From there Grooved Arete (230m HVD 4a) and Overlapping Ridge Route (150m D) were climbed with varying pace and degrees of faff...To add to the fun we descended via the North Ridge scramble, a day we’ll all remember!
Another hot sunny day in the pass, this time Craig Ddu, some weary mountaineers rested whilst others climbed; Rib and Slab (VD), the sparsely protected Crown of Thorns (S 4a) and Yellow Groove VS (4b).
All in all an excellent weekend with good weather and climbing, may there be many more of these!
