Moelwyn Adventures

We took Gavin to the Moelwyns for a second taste of multipitch climbing. The team pysche was not dampened by a shower during the walk in and we quickly quested up Slack - Gavins first Severe. You know when someone is putting the effort in when the climb draws blood! After a spot of luncheon we tackled the classic Kirkus Route Direct which features varied and at times exposed climbing. I would recommend the Moelwyns for anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Ogwen and Llanberis Pass - its even a good bet in poor weather as the rock is extremely grippy!

Busy working, busy climbing...

I've been busy... can you tell? April has shaped up to be a fine month with plenty of spring sunshine and good temps. I'm having a well needed day off from both working and playing to try and let my body recover a little! I was shut down at Tremadog yesterday - not only did I feel like I had nothing in my arms but I was baffled by the technicality of the climbing there - too much pulling on crimps in the pass! My climbing is going well - got a good few E3s and E4s under my belt and a rather unstylish ascent of Cockblock E5.

I wont blog on too much instead I'll put up a few photos...
