North Wales Hit the Headlines

North Wales winter climbing has hit front page news of UKC today. It is so good to see this happen. Often thought as a lost backwater of winter action, this year has proved it can stand up there against North of the Border. The funny thing is, we have not had really good conditions as of yet. If these came then the flood gated would really open.

Keep you eye on that forecast as another good spell could well be on the way. It is worth remembering, last year I had perfect winter conditions on the Easter weekend.

On to today, It has been another beautiful day here in North Wales. There has been a decent thaw, but all is not lost. The gullies are still holding snow high up. However, it is the crags which have gone black. As soon as the temp goes down then stellar neve will be yours for the taking. Also if it does go cold before it snows again then that will definatley help that green stuff.
