/ Snowdon Trinity Face Winter Climbing Video!
During the recent cold spell in early March, my partners in crime and I managed an opportunistic smash and grab raid on the easy classic “Central Trinity” on Yr Wyddfa (aka Snowdon!) in North Wales on a perfect day of weather. Trinity Face was in winter raiment with "Central Trinity" especially in very good nick and the route provided most excellent sport, despite yours truly getting hit by a chunk of ice at 01.46...
The entertainment was duly recorded so for anyone interested in viewing a short HD film of this memorable day then please use the following link:
Unsurprisingly, being a glorious Saturday, the face was very busy with a lot of traffic so there are quite a lot of unknown solo and roped climbers featured on routes such as the 3 Trinity Gullies and Little Gully, so do have a look as you may recognize yourself immortalised on film! Anyway all constructive feedback welcome and hopefully it will inspire a few folks to visit this superb face next time it freezes up! :-)
Thanks mate and I hope your day on the Trinity face was as good as ours! :-)

The opening sequence at Llynau Mymbyr? I think I was sat next to you taking this shot at the time...
Unless you were there slightly before me and it was someone else ;)
great vid monsieur Dave! song worked well too. From what I could see you used a go pro hero2, and something else.what was it? great footage. :D
Cheers guys, glad you enjoyed the video and many thanks for the positive feedback! :-)

Hey Nicholas many thanks! Yeah that opening sequence and I'm sure you are right and we briefly spoke whilst I was frantically assembling my tripod + camcorder before the moon disappeared and my mates were waiting in the car ready to go climbing...
You would struggle to go wrong when the iconic view to Snowdon is so perfectly reflected on Llynau Mymbyr. Anyway great image of yours on Flickr so happy days! :-)

Cheers Stanners muchly appreciated! Yep well spotted the GPH2 but I predominately use a Panasonic V700 HD camcorder with a small, lightweight tripod then edit in a few GoPro shots to get an interesting mix of angles and views and hopefully end up with something watchable. On a couple of my recent videos I have managed to bribe my long suffering missus, with chocolate and cava, to come along a film the entertainment using my super-smooth but large + heavy "Slick" tripod. Definitely not the sort of tripod you would want to carry on a climb... :-)
> (In reply to BALD EAGLE) Nice video and looks like a super day out. Here's a link to a little bit of vid taken at a belay high on Carrauntoohil last week.
Hey goatee many thanks and yes indeedy it was a top day out!
Just had a chance to have a look at your short clip of curved gully ridge and it looks a grand day out! What grade does it go at?
Thanks! The route looks to be a fine outing so one to put on my ever-expanding list of things to do! :-)
Hey Lizzie muchly appreciated! :-)
Dave they just keep getting better! Looks like you guys had a grand day out :-)

Many thanks and the reflection of the Snowdon Horseshoe and the moon on a millpond calm Llynau Mymbyr was pretty special!
