/ Ban y Gor conditions????
What are the current conditions? Is it overgrown?
Any routes that are must do's?
Thanks for the info I am would be looking for a few 5's to warm up and then anything in the 6's really although it will probably be completing the easier ones and falling off of the 6'cs lol
They are fairly well spread out along the crag, but a good day can be had by walking down to the Main Cliff then working your way back along the escarpment ticking the easier lines en route. Useful to have the Lower Wye 2007 and the 2012 supplement as there has been a fair amount of retro bolting in recent years.
Slightly harder routes that are worthwhile include Lotus Wing 6b and the already mentioned Heady Days 6b+ - surely one of the most spectacular routes of this grade in the UK, don't miss it!
maybe i need to take a Machette with me lol
let see how we get on
I'd take a machete with me if I had one - no joke.
Not been there this year but it wouldn't be a bad idea to take some insect repellent. Lots of mosquitos about most of the time!
East of Swedon 6b+
Join the Union, Jack 6b
Stars and Stripes 6c
Lotus Wing 6b
Good Friday Agreement 6c
Violation of Trust 6b
Muddy Waters 6a
Heady Days 6b+
Thanks again all
Tom. Where is the bet place to park?
