The purpose of this blog is to report on winter climbing conditions in Snowdonia, to keep you lot who like nothing better than climbing ice, snow, frozen turf etc in ridiculously low temps informed!! As well as it being a record of some of my own winter climbing adventures. Feel free to email me any of your own conditions reports & photos you have & I will post them here.

Waiting for later in the week.
I was supposed to be heading out today with my mate, but he cancelled which is probably no bad thing looking at todays temps. Managed to wangle some free time later this week probably wednesday & thursday and hopefully with a bit of freeze thaw and some cold temps high up conditions might be good.
Quite a few people out over the weekend apparently climbing all sorts of things from great nick hard mixed routes on Clogwyn Ddu to some very sketchy (poor) conditions in some of the gullies. Although apparently Cwm Lloer has had the best low grade neve gullies. (Or so I'm told!)
