Beginning with an initial detour around the lake instead of heading to what was quite obviously our destination, we decided that as it was the hottest day of the year, and possibly the nicest day there has ever been in Wales, it would be good to sit in the shade all day and watch everyone else enjoy it. After straying off route somewhere around the third pitch we arrived in an area with similar structural rigidity to a house of cards in a typhoon. A few dislodged blocks later, I finally made it to the red wall ledge. However, being an absolute liability of a team, almost to the point of comedy, the faff did not stop there. A red cam fell from the anchor while Jess was taking it apart and plunged down to a ledge 2 pitches below. After a pause to fully absorb what had actually just happened and regain emotional control, Jess then down-climbed on top rope to fetch the cam before joining me at the red walls ledge. See 'Terminal Arete' for Part 2...

Beyond wet. Trying to climb here the day after 3 days of rain was a poor choice. Bailed on p2 . Must be 4 million percent better when dry because from what we found it was a guppy sloppy pile of $#×! Defo not worth a single star in these conditions. Also the walk in ruined us!

Surprisingly busy and a big queue for Red Wall so continued up Purple Passage (HS), which was an excellent alternative.

Pen y Pass, Miners track to the lake, branched left to the foot of Lliwedd, attempted to climb Avalanche but bailed after 3 pitches due to weather and route finding issues. Rope snagged twice on retrievable abseils. Rain, cloud base 600m
