Castell Helen afternoon

Beware out there!
Beware out there!

Spent this afternoon at Castell Helen, running up Light House Arete Direct and the top pitch of Rap, both VS. The weather wasn’t too good the sun that was shining when we left Llanberis was gone by the time we arrived at the crag. On the crag the wind wasn’t too bad, and you could really feel the warmth in the breeze compared to the more recent knifing northerlies.

It was great to get to Gogarth so early in the year, my climbing partner found the atmosphere rather more exciting than a normal cliff. Considering it was her first sea cliff experience, it is not surprising that it felt rather exposed. The sea was fairly lively, although not as bad as i have seen, when I had to belay 40 ft above the usual belay niche because of the waves.

A great afternoon out though.
