07-01-10, Cwm Idwal, Snowdonia - Winter Climbing
Another beautiful day today. Another early return to the Idwal before the masses arrived. Myself and Kathryn left the Car park in the dark and there were still 12+ people in front! We climbed Chicane Gully III,3 (3,3). A nice ice pitch to start then some mixed turf on the second. Most routes are being climbed every minute there is daylight. Below is a list of routes that people have been climbing: Idwal Stream, South Gully, Central Gully, Chicane Gully, Devil's Pipes, The Ramp, The Screen, The Curtain (Photo), Devil's Pasture, Devil's Appendage (new VII route but bottom left icicle has disappeared!), Devil's Kitchen, Devil's Appendix, The Sting and The Devil's Cellar... phew.
