29-07-10, Gogarth - Rock Climbing

Jamie and Matt on the final pitch of Light House Arete, Castell Ellin, Gogarth.

This is the second day of a 3 day multi-pitch climbing course for Marle Hall OEC with Jamie and Matt. With drizzle in the mountains and a hunger for excitement we headed to the sea cliffs of Gogarth and went climbing at Castell Ellin on South Stack. The boys enjoyed the intimidation of sea cliff climbing and found the steep VS climbs very enjoyable. We climbed Rap VS 4c and Lighthouse Arete VS 4c. The sea state was slight and sun even paid us a visit.
PJ Mountains can offer Sea Cliff climbing courses, either guided (experience) climbs or learn how to stay safe while climbing. The intimidation factor of an abseil at the start of the day, hanging belay stances, rope work, runner management, may have put you off however PJ Mountains can create a course to suit your needs. Enquire for details on where and how you would like to learn.
