My favourite climb of the day everything felt right great first pitch hardest moves near bottom gets easier as go up and a great place to set a belay on first pitch and your walk back down shorter great climb plenty of gear few hardish moves.

Beautiful morning, after an invisible early stretch (ended up at Tryfan Fach due to loish mist and,dampness initially. v. Busy halfterm day - lots of families or climbers club holidayers. All friendly though. Done with sian as an easier warmup and so she could practise interpreting guide book and leading to belaying point, looking at gear placements and belay.
