As the numerous photographs have shown, an extremely successful trip, on many levels, took place to North Wales over the Easter break. A total of 23 club members climbed the wonderful mountains of the Snowdonia National Park in amazing weather conditions. Snowdon itself, at 1085m, was the aim of the trip and unfortunately it was the poorest day in terms of visibility, so it may mean a return trip for some. Routes taken were the Pyg track or the famous Crib Goch ridge. The group enjoyed ‘sos beag’ in the newly refurbished cafe at the summit! Descent routes followed the Snowdon horseshoe route, or for the ‘die hards’, Crib Goch!
Other routes over the week included : Circuit of Cwm Llafer, Crib Lem Ridge, Scrambling on the North Ridge of Tryfan, Scrambling Bristly Ridge onto the Glyders, Y Gribben Ridge, Devil’s Kitchen, Llyn Ogwen and Y Garn.
There was a scrambling instruction day directed by Colin Gibbon and Paul Norris from Shielbaggan Outdoor Education Centre where many of the group learned how to safeguard short steps with minimum equipment.
A small number of the group climbed at Tremadoc and also on Little Tryfan.
A return is a must for all!
