Simply botanical (wood anemone, ferns, wild raspberry, campion, heather and I think maybe some kind of moss). Sure the climbing wold have been more enjoyable in the dry

Heading for Gist Ddu but forgot the rack! Then it rained. Climbed with a rope and a hex, both of which were worthless.

Stood in the cold damp drizzle, on belay in the back of the chimney leaning against two blocks about the size of yer average fridge stacked on top of one another that gently moved - I watched as a large black slug slowly made it way past me up the wall opposite I remember thinking - "This time last Saturday morning I was climbing in the Chamonix valley, in the sunshine, on warm rock being over taken by lizards !"

Can't remember much about this (even the year we did it) but it was a very hot day and we were sheltered from the sun for most of it.
