/ Grading question: North Wales routes
Any climbs that are likely to be less than grade 4 at the moment?*
Any chance of anything being dry outside of the slate quarries?
I'm not satisfied with your answer. I'd like estimated moisure levels of holds on a selection of routes at the very least ;-)
More seriously are any areas currently innacessible?
Don't worry about it, we had 2 full days climbing last weekend. Flash floods tend to disappear quickly.
Cheers! Looks like things are improving. Hopefully no more rain before Friday as I'm heading for the Ogwen valley. :-)
It`s looking better for the next few days and for the weekend, thermal weather towards the weekend though, very coldsome snow on tops....
very coldsome snow on tops....
Axes or dingy, axes or rockshoes, dingy or rockshoes?
I thought I'd just about worked out what I was taking till you said the magic S word :-)
Check out Rob Jonstons blog, he was out on Crib Goch yesterday but, since yesterday morning lot of it has dissapeared.....
