Blake - on 24 Jun 2014
Anyone going to the Trad Fest in Llanberis?

I'm gona just rock up and see what's goin down - hoping to meet other climbers to chill with and do a few routes.

Got all the gear, climb at HVS and have wheels - will be driving over after work.

Give me a shout!

shame the good weather will have broken by then http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2644172 . I guess Glastonbury was bound to jinx it.

Except as MWIS points out, confidence is low. Nothing like a bit of negativity is there?

realism I think.

I think the low confidence is regarding the rain weds not the good weather breaking. Anyway I didn't say it will rain, just that the long spell of unusually good weather is coming to an end for a bit. Also wales is specifically mentioned on mwis as the highest risk for showers this weekend.

Have you seen this?

This can be useful too and does seem to indicate the current forecast is fairly accurate for the next week.

The good news is that N.Wales is just about the best place in the country for still getting some brilliant climbing in when the weather is a bit patchy. Plenty of rain shadows and fast drying crags.

For what it's worth I'm planning on going to the Peak District on 4/5/6 July so there will be biblical flooding by then :-(

Best conditions ever on the Cromlech on the Saturday of the festival, despite the forecast. "If you don't go you don't know!"

PS Hi Blake, good to meet you on Friday night, hope you enjoyed the festival!!

Llangollen area was great yesterday - a rain shower about 6am but then it just got gradually sunnier all day. My first visit to Craig Arthur ('a crag of national importance' says the guidebook) and four of us had the entire place to ourselves...

Great weekend event and thanks to all who ran and arranged it, entertainment on friday evening watching north face tent being pitched kept us amused.
Bet hog didn`t enjoy being dropped in fire midday either :-)

It was still scrumptious regardless!

I agree, it was an excellent fun weekend.
