Winter is still here

Hi Bags,

Been up to Clogwyn Ddu with Stu. Conditions great, but v windy. Managed 3 pitches of Dai's route, but were in a grauple maelstrom so didn't do last pitch. Finished out right up good snow and ice.

Ed Booth's partner climbed from Blenderhead straight up and right into El Manco doing a good looking direct variation. Looked exciting, good effort!

Tim and I ( baggy ) belive this is a new route as we had our eye on this. Booth,s climbed this thinking it was El Mancho. good effort lads, send me some pics.

Xmas morning was ace on Glyder Fawr with Ray Wood. Did East Gully on good ice to start, then assorted wintery mediums to the top. Beautiful views and dinner tasted good.

Hi Baggy,

Gto the bottom of trojan last Wednesay only to find it wasn't in nick, it was very thin and what was there wasn't well bonded. Looks a super a route and a few days freeze thaw would probably make it climable. We managed to find some ice, a 50m pitch IV/V don't think its in the guidebook though.

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year

Cheers Chris Guest

Tojan last Week

Hi Baggy

Sorry for late post, we climbed Castle Gulley side of Y garn, and then Screen and South Gully in Idwal. The picture shows how good the ice was. With the recent rise in temps and the predicted freeze and more snow should be really good

Cheers Ken Priest
