Scrambling Day 2

I went over to Ogwen again today and decided that Tryfan Bach and the East Face of Tryfan would give Guy and Rob enough of a challenge. Everything went according to plan with a fast ascent of Tryfan Bach and then over to South Gully but I decide that it was too wet and greasy so I thought North Buttress would be a better alternative - that was until the weather had something to say. We were up one pitch of North Buttress variant and the heavens opened with rain drops the size of marbles and it just kept on raining so we retreated off the route and went down to Tryfan Bach to look at some scrambling skills. The sun did eventually show it's face which was a very nice end to the day. More photo's on Flickr by clicking here

Scrambling Day

I was out with Guy and Rob today so that they could experience scrambling in a more serious setting and to start to learn rope skills. We started out by making an ascent of the NW Face Route in Cwm Idwal and, as the weather was looking favourable, we quickly made our way over to the Cneifion Arete just as it started raining a little. Undaunted by the wet rock we made good time on the route to arrive at the base of Y Gribin ridge with enough time to make it up to the summit of Glyder Fawr (1001m) and down the Devil's Kitchen. Thankfully, the weather forecast wasn't correct as we stayed relatively dry all day but we did have a close call with some thunder nearby but that passed us by without incident.
