Last few days and this Weekend

Adam Harmer was out helping some mates learn the ropes on Central Trinity ( Snowdon grade II. ) on Thursday. He reported a soft wettish surface although if it froze it would be awesome neve. There was plenty of snow on the summit and crampons were needed from just after where the PYG and Miners tracks meet.

The last few days has seen a thaw take place. On the way home today the Black Ladders and Carneauddu looked a lot different than 2 days ago. When it does get cold I would go to Snowdon to seek out some gullies. However, most of the the crags are black. The forecast for Saturday is poor ( windy and warm ) but Sunday is good and very cold. So Sunday is the day to get out as that neve should be bomber.
