Trinity Gullies by Andy Barker

Trinities ok today Andy. Did great gully which is probably in the worst nic of all the gullies. Turf still needs some more substance but LH central and RH all have plenty snow. Still sugar underneath a crust but supports more than bodyweight now.. freezing again as we left the summit at 1500.


  1. Must have seen you Andy Whitmore, I left the summit then too with my wife - were you either a rope of two (male female) or a possibly a group of 4?
    We descended the zig zags and let a couple of parties past.

  2. You might even feature as dots on the video at the end of this set!

  3. Hi,
    Are ropes necessary for Trinity Gully on Snowdon (Winter)?
