after a week of hideous night/day/epic hour shifts, we headed out on Sunday with the promised "all day sun" forecast for north Wales. Went up to the Georges Crack area in Ogwen where we had planned to warm up before heading over to Lily Savage etc. We were slightly underwhelmed by the problems we did here, but the walk across to the main area was practically mission impossible due to the bog underfoot. The howling gale and imminent rain shower deterred us, so we beat a retreat to the Milestone boulders. I flashed the Pit start pretty easily before trying Jez's arete (dropped my best go then couldn't get near it again!). Rich ended an old nemesis on Pit traverse, after I showed him how to nail the drop down move crux (on the flash, naturally) ;) I tried Harvey Oswald, but it's nails, hardest v6 I've probably ever tried!
