Ogwen to Capel by Mike Peacock

After twisting my ankle on Monday, I had to cancel Tuesdays planned trip into Cwm Cneifion & todays plans for Idwal ice :-(
Hopefully get out again in the next few days....
Recieved the following email from Mike Peacock this evening. Thanks Mike.
Hi Andy,

I was out today (Thursday 2nd), but just walking. Ice is forming nicely, and the high crags look well rimed. I counted 9 people on Idwal Stream from across the valley. Even at low levels (300m) there is windslab about, so caution will be needed for the weekend.

Hope the ankle improves soon,
