Worked the first part and got to the corner but lack of fitness after a long break from climbing meant that was as far as I got. Good route though.

An early run up snowdon in clear blue sky. I did this route twice. The rock felt like it was burning my sore fingers it was so hot today. The horseflys were not much fun, but at least the bog was dry over the way.
