Tremadog Tree Felling

Great day at Tremadog yesterday - climbed 7 E1's at Bwlch y Moch with friend Sylvia. What fanatastic rock and movement. The climbing is always involved, technical and rewarding - and whats more the sun shone all day!!!

Bwlch y Moch is undergoing a bit of a revival at the moment thanks to the BMC. Crag clean up days have meant that routes formerly choked with ivy and vegetation have been rendered climbable and most recently a programme of tree felling has occured. They have removed a lot of the invasive sycamores (scary when they are dropping big trees down the fang gully whilst sat at the bottom of the plum!) which has made the jungle much more open - meaning finding the bottom of routes easier, the routes will dry quicker and there will be more sun for belays! There has also been work on some of the paths which is well needed!
