15-07-11, Cadair Idris - Rock Climbing
Snowdonia has been graced with sunny skies and high pressure all of this week. I was out scrambling with Gary and Kath on Monday and ascended the classy Sentries ridge. We were trying to get some good photos for the new scrambling guide book that Gary is writing. I have been working at Arthog O.E.C. for the rest of the week, but managed to get out climbing Thursday evening with Steve. We made the hour walk up to Cyfrwy on Cadair Idris and climbed Gwydrin, E1 5a,5b which was excellent. The first pitch was a bit loose and strange but the second pitch easily made up for it. Clean rock, great friction and west facing so stayed in the sun till dusk.
