Afon Las, Craig y Rhaeadr & Sargeant's Gully

Hi Andy,

I managed to sneak a day out today. I headed out with Gareth Harvey and Marc Brouard into Cwm Glas Mawr. We decided to do the Afon Las (I/II) as Marc's introduction to ice. It's the outflow of Llyn Glas and was very enjoyable with a few steeper pitches. There were plenty of climbers on Craig y Rhaeadr and Sargeant's Gully and a few on Parsley Fern. At low levels the snow has been subject to freeze-thaw and is firming up, but higher up it's still soft and powdery, so I don't imagine the high gullies are much fun yet.

Hope the ankle is on the mend,
