A classic day on a classic route and Claire's 1st grade 3 scramble.

Stuie73 28/Jul Lead

This was Luke's 1st grade 3 scramble in his spanking new Sportiva's with Andy who hadn't done any climbing for several years but has had plenty of experience in the past. Top day out with the lads! Luke also dropped his phone approx. 50ft off the top of the tombstone and when I retrieved it is was unscathed {not a scratch} and in working order.

Oujmik 27/Apr/15 Lead

Mix of moving together, scrambling and pitched for the crux. Weather was freezing with some hail (actually much nicer than rain as it just bounced off). Some ice around the gully and on the summit rocks. Probably wasted some time trying to follow the guidebook perfectly on the lower section when you could pretty much just improvise. Crux section was fun - easy climbing in an interesting situation - although not as exposed as some suggest. Perhaps soloing it would induce greater respect for the drop. Upper section very straightforward but good quality rock and nice ambience. Mod seems about right for the crux, the rest is much easier.

route finding is rather hard in the rain and cloud! nay impossible. abbed off pretty soon after starting. then the epic began: left a couple of slings at the abstation by accident, climbed back up the gully a bit but it was sketchy in the rain so retreated, got the rope stuck, freed the rope after some difficulty. matt then went around a different way, collected the gear and abbed off a second time. note to self: always double check the stance for kit before abbing off. hate self.

climbed this as a 2 with tony along with daz and rod.quite a tiring walk in,especially as I had to carry the rope. (nice one tony) nothing too technical although the first vertical pitch had to be done in "big boots" but pretty good protection available with short slings and some large nuts.the climb through the overhanging slab was a joy and topping out eventually onto glider fach .worth doing with some fine views ,lucky to have a decent day.finished off with a pint in the tyn y coed.perfect!

Did this one is horrible wet greasy conditions and still thoroughly enjoyed it. We only got the rope out for one pitch, the groove on the Dolmen Buttress, and was glad we did because my big boots were slipping all over the shop on the wet rock. Soloed the rest of the route. A couple of very exposed moves on the table topped tower further up but with good holds. A nice long sustained route with a proper mountain feel and good scrambling almost all the way to the summit rocks of Glyder Fach.

Scrambled up R side of gully as per guidebook, but traversed L under Dolmen Buttress too early. Headed to top left corner of grassy area and climbed chossy groove (unpleasant). Traversed R to a belay (exposed) and attempted to climb corner with chimney in top half (hard). After some cursing and battling, two kind souls appeared above (on correct start of Dolmen Ridge incidentally) and kindly threw down a rope (downclimbing was not appealing). Up I thrutched and Mrs MB followed more stylishly. We bailed due to time, but will be back now we know where correct start is! Funny how you can make the guidebook fit what you see. Seems stupid now I read it again.
