/ Torpantau conditions?
It's in. Ice is really thick and solid. Just got back from there. Was getting super busy as we were leaving though.
Road access from Merthyr was completely clear, no chains/ 4x4 needed, and I imagine it will be clear from Talybont-on-Usk too.
Should still be good tomorrow, though I suspect it recieved a beating after we left. Lots of parties getting ready to go at it when we toped out. We were one of the first teams there. Get there as early as you can if you do go.
Craig Y Llyn looked good as we drove past it to Torpantau. It was in good nick, very fat. I'd imagine RAC should be good as well.
Fingers crossed the freeze stays untill weekend
Thanks all, we went up on the 30th and it was in great nick.
Climbed Torpantau yesterday. It is still all there and in reasonable conditions. Certainly better condition that Iron Claws was.
