06-01-10, Cwm Idwal, Snowdonia - Winter Climbing

Conditions in Cwm Idwal are 'primo' at the moment. Pretty much everything is being climbed and it is very busy. A glorious day sunny and crisp.

Today I was climbing with Kathryn and Luke. We got up early and managed to be the 4th team in the Cwm and the first on Central Route III,3 (3,2) which is an ace two pitch route. After, we quickly descended the kitchen it was to the back of the queue for The Devils Cellar IV,4 (4,4). The wait was worth it as yet another excellent ice route.

The ice seems to be getting fatter, low temperatures but still dripping in the day then refreezing at night. -2 degrees in Ogwen car park this evening so set to continue...
