Just thought I'd post to amuse a few people!

I'm leaving tomorrow with a few guys from work to go climbing in Llanberis this weekend. It's a 430 mile round trip and with the expected snow, I imagine there will be no climbing to be had.

Gutted.

In reply to knighty: Forecast for the weekend is actually good, albeit a touch cold. Go to Holyhead Mountain (officially the sunniest crag in North Wales) or Tremadog and you should be fine. Maybe invest in a hand warmer though! I've done routes on cold days with one of these in my chalk bag and it certainly helps.

If you're going all that way, tremadog is about the most sheltered place around, but from your logbook you may have done all the up-to-hvs stuff there.

Thanks for the suggestions. I do love Tremadog. And to be fair, in this (cold) weather the grades don't really matter to me; I'd rather be safe in doing a few severes with numb hands rather than pushing the grades!!

I did Belshazzar in a blizzard once (rock shoes and redundant chalk bag rather than dry aid tooling). It wasn't supposed to be that way, but it was another one of those useful formative experiences!

In reply to knighty: There is a half decent climbing wall near Llanberis even if you actually manage to get there. If the weather report is true, I give you a 30% chance of getting there.

I'll report back on Monday with details about the weekend! I'm sure we'll get there...

Famous last words, eh?!
