09-05-10, Moelwyns - Rock Climbing

Fionn and Mark, checking the guidebook to see where the final pitch of Slack goes.

The second day working on a Rock Developer course for Plas y Brenin with Fionn and Mark, we went rock climbing in the Moelwyns to Clogwyn yr Oen and climbed Slack S 4a in 4 pitches and Slick VD in 2 pitches. We looked at more multi pitch climbing techniques, built on yesterdays experience of good runner placements and building belays. It was glorious and sunny all day, the crag wasn't busy at all Ben showed his team how to lead climbs (photo - right).
This evening Kath, Lou and myself went to Clogwyn Cyrau high above Betws y Coed. We climbed Hywel Dda E2 5b, which gave some steep, jug climbing!
