09-08-10, Tremadog - Rock Climbing

Today has been very wet in Snowdonia. I was working on a Multi-pitch Rock course for Kathryn Bromfield Mountaineering with Julian. We headed to Tremadog in hope to find dry rock, however today even Costa Del Tremadog couldn't come up with the goods. Despite heavy rain, we managed to climb 4 multi-pitch routes between VD and VS. Julian has done some climbing and scrambling before, so climbing in the wet wasn't that much of an issue. We looked at placing good runners, building belays, abseiling, double rope techniques and managing ropes on stances. We packed a lot in and Julian managed to use all of his new climbing hardware for himself. We climbed, Boo Boo VD, Oberon S (photo - right), Yogi VS and Cynychwyr P2 VS.
The top flake of Yogi, how do we do it??

That's how we do it!
