It looks like winter is making an appearance here in N.Wales, woo hoo! Yesterday I headed down to Crib Goch (dog in tow) to have a look what conditions were like. I know that Rob Johnson was on it yesterday with clients and reported on his blog decent conditions. Crampons were essential all along the ridge, with snow being frozen hard and plenty of verglass all over the place. The Trinity face on Snowdon was white, although I can't imagine any turf will be frozen (yet) as all the turf I encountered was sodden. I am away in the Lakes this weekend, climbing Saturday then at the Mazeno Ridge event at Rheged on Sunday, but I know a lot of you will be heading out into the N.Wales mountains so as usual if you want to email me any condition reports/photos of what you find I promise to post them up here. Have fun!
