Hourglass Gully, Cwm Loer - Mike Peacock
Email today from Mike Peacock:
Lots of snow stripped very low down now, but still lots in Cwm Lloer (and Cwm Cneifion by the look of it). Me and Gareth Harvey climbed Hourglass Gully. Deep soft snow, with avalanche debris at the base of it. Because of this I moved right above the narrows onto more broken ground, and somewhere in the process lost a crampon. If anyone who reads your blog stumbles across it then there'd be beer money in it for them...Anyway, apart from that it was a pleasant day, and the weather was far better than that forecast.
