/ Gogarth in February
Tremadog has always been swamp like when I've been in Winter, maybe I've been unlucky. And most of Gogarth doesn't get enough sun. In Winter, you need sun.
I'd say Pembroke trumps North Wales this time of year, the Orme can be a sun trap though.
The crag was out of the wind.
Climbed Dream last January, another great day out.

I did Pincushion in the sun today... It was great. The first access pitch wasn't that great though.
Castell Helen and Yellow Walls will get afternoon sun, as does North Stack Wall and Rhoscolyn, no sure about RW itself. Not sure about the Orme being a sun trap, most of Great Orme faces East, evening sun on Yellow Walls but it can be breezy. There's always Clwyd Rock in the rainshadow....
Yeah, you're right, ignore me, brain fart. Gogarth with a lazy start would be better.
Swanage has got to be one of the best winter trad spots although I'm sure you know that......

The Orme mostly faces North East!
Yes, we've covered that.
We could ask the BMC to buy it and turn it round?
It was them that turned it north east.
