From Huw Gilbert


How are you? I was out in Cwm Bochlwyd today and the snow is excellent. Its good hard neve at all levels and I imagine its the same across the whole of the park. Not a great deal of ice around but you can see that its trying hard to form. Quite a few teams in Cwm Ceinifion - Tower Gully, Tower Slabs, Hidden Gully and Right Hand Y Gully all look really good. There was a team climbing one of the hard mixed lines on Clogwyn Du, the crag is whiteish so I guess that means its fair game if that's your bag.

All the best,
