Hello.

I have read an article on here about Tremadog that says it is an all season crag.

Is this true?

Is it possible to climb on Tremadog in October and/or November?

Bye

In reply to Mountain Spirit: Can't think of a month when I haven't climbed there - its more or less south facing, dries fast & if it does rain, the café isn't far away

In reply to Mountain Spirit: It's possible to climb at many venues in October and November and beyond but Tremadog does tend to be drier, more reliable and temperate than most weather wise which is what I suspect you are getting at.

Over 50 first ascents have been done in Oct/Nov at Tremadog, and countless more in Dec/Jan/Feb/April, so I guess you might get up something in those months.

Bit like the grit really, cold, sunny winter days with great friction !

By the way I have heard of the famous climb 'New Year Curry'.

Thanks very much, but no... was it Xmas Tikka Masala? It's on the tip of my tongue...

There's a right argy-bhaji starting about whether or not the route in question should be Balti'd

We used to have a tradition of rock climbing in Wales on the weekend before Christmas.I remember doing a route in Cwm Lloer with ice on all the holds(and my mate cursing me for persevering)and of finding a ropeman covered in snow on one route on Bochllwyd Buttress.(Not sure of spelling,sorry).

Yes, I remember climbing North Buttress on the east face of Tryfan in December once with members of the Cardiff University club in driving sleet ... and singing all the way because I was enjoying it so much. OK, I was only 20 years old :)

Yes, it's a real suntrap as it faces south and is low altitude. Well worth a visit at almost any time of the year but particularly the autumn or spring. The low to mid grade classics are superb and many dry very quickly.

In reply to Gordon Stainforth: I remember doing Dovedale Groove in the Lakes in November, all was fine in the groove till I pulled out onto the glacis/slab above the groove. It was covered in verglas, I had to take off my EB's and climb to the stance in socks, which actually stuck nicely to the ice :-)

Bet the socks didn't cost so much then either..
