We went over to Fall Bay today on the Gower and climbed on King Wall and Lewes Castle. The climbing was terrific with routes of all grades and steepness available. The weather was overcast and a bit breezy but perfect for climbing. We climbed the following routes:
Fafnir HS 4b
Sweyn HS 4b
Ragnarok HS 4a (below)
Frigg VS 4b
Balder VS 5a
Osiris VS 4c (left)
It was really quiet today with only one other party turning up later in the afternoon. A fantastic days climbing.
A happy team after a busy weekend conducting climbing, abseiling and ropes course assessments. I was working down in West Sussex working for PGL. I had a fantastic welcome at Windmill Hill so a big thank you goes out to the senior team and staff who were super helpful, happy and enthusiastic throughout.
What a day! Rain, sleet and then snow to be rewarded with fantastic conditions and views to die for - we even had a broken specter thrown in as well. Conditions were wintry (as you can see from the photo of Nia) but didn't merit the use of crampons at any stage although we did need an ice axe for descending the zig zags. Even though it was cold it wasn't freezing that hard but the wind chill was high when the wind picked up on the summit of Carnedd Ugain. All in all a rewarding day.
