Crib Goch

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.
