Snowdonia Rock Climbing at its best!!

Today I woke to glorious sunshine in the mountains so Rhys (of V12 Outdoor) and I shelved plans to go to the Orme and headed up the Llanberis pass. It was so warm for March - I even managed a couple of routes in just a t-shirt!! We made the short walk up to the Grochan and climbed Kaiserbirge Wall HVS, Hangover E2, Slape Direct E2 and SS Special E2 - not bad for an early session session.

It clouded over a bit in the afternoon so we retreated for a rest and coffee in V12 before strolling up to Vivian Quarry and climbing Last Tango In Paris in the warm evening sunshine. What an awesome day.

 The weather looks set pretty fair for the next few days and the crags are nice and dry - time to kick start your rock climbing year. I'm hoping to be back in the pass tomorrow doing some guiding. Should be a great day.
