Scrambling on Tryfan - Monday

What a fine spring like morning! The snow has all but dissapeared now - its still clinging on to the shaded spots on the highest peaks and cwms - so with the sun shining I headed up onto Tryfan with young Oli for a scrambling adventure. We decided on Nor' Nor' Buttress as this looked dry and free of any remaining snow. We moved quickly over varied terrain but unfortunately by the time we got to the top the cloud had come down and the wind had picked up. We donned an extra layer then bailed off down the rather unpleasant western gully - a quick way off the top but loose in places.
