Climbed in low cloud, very damp. Lead the VS pitch, low crux getting off the floor, a bold climb. Finished up terminal arÍte.

Placed runners high and right below roof, down climbed a few feet and then traversed left. Way easier and less scary than climbing up the right and traversing high.

Done in combination with route 2, red wall and longlands continuation.

Led first pitch - not so fun for the short, especially when weighed down with extra nuts for a 50m pitch and nowhere to place them!

Only a few hard moves to get onto the rib, but very bold after that. The rope was a formality well before the top! Finished up Route 2/Red Wall/Longland's

Followed Claudia up, pulling on gear until over the initial crux moves. Would have found it difficult for the grade without the big rucksack.

Lovely day out. Followed with Red Wall and Longlands. Cleaner and less loose than we were expecting.

Big boots in the wet, followed by a visit to the new caf on snowdon and a run down crib goch. Good day out.
