Christmas Curry at Tremadog with Col
Today Colin & I headed down to climb on the excellent dolerite cliffs at Tremadog. South facing and at low altitude Tremadog provided excellent all year round climbing & plenty of classic three star routes.
We started with Hail Bebe (V Diff**), which provides great top pitches with good exposure.
Next was Oberon (S 4b*). Colin led the first 4b pitch on the initial slab which proved to be the toughest part of the route.
For our last climb we did Christmas Curry (HS 4a***), which is a deserved three star route. We seemed to do a combination of the Micah Finish & Original Finish, so our own hybrid. I led the final pitch which provided big exposure.
We had an all round great day out in fantastic weather.
