Still no sign of any snow. Its proving to be a long dark winter this year.
However, some updated info regards a few winter routes.
Subject: the demise of Capstone Heel Hook V-7
Rich Stone has reported a change at Craig Dafydd......the capstone at the top of Capstone
Heelhook has gone and has taken out the pillar below.
On closer inspection, a small rock fall from above has dislodged the capstone and it has hit and taken the top off the pillar between Capstone Heelhook and Si Pantons \'Samuel\' resulting in one large crater below the crag and loose stuff all over both routes.
Samuel looks still passable, but may be dangerous and very loose
Unfortunately the top of Capstone Heelhook is destroyed and seriously unstable.
Real shame that, as it was one of my routes. However, all is not lost, Gaz and me always thought it was VII-8, now we will never know !!!!!!!
