Best Climbing Experience The Plumb! E1, 5b on Craig Bwlch y Moch. Feeling down in the middle of winter, not being able to get any hard routes done, I'd turned my attention to ice climbing. Went out on the ice one weekend, and the next, Steve took me up The Plumb. A complete contrast to the previous weekend, Tremadog was a suntrap that day, it was like the middle of summer. I was completely pumpped after doing seven days of continous climbing and dogged three times, but it didn't matter... I was in awe of the line. What a fantastic route! Have to go back and lead it.
I did go back and lead it. Other notable mentions are:
Appian Way, E2 5c, Great Orme
Grey Panther, E1 5b, Isle of Skye
