I spent the weekend camping over near Rhoscolyn, with some good friends, lots of BBQ’s and of course some great climbing. Most of the dads were tied up with there families on the Saturday, so I spent some time snapping. Hopefully the fruits of my labor are to your liking.
I did spend some time soloing around the lookout cliffs, as well as sneaking up The Truant, and taking a team of friends up Symphony Cracks (diff). Before heading back for the first of many BBQ’s for another friends birthday.
On Sunday a team of four of us headed back to the Rhoscolyn Crags and climbed a bunch of routes. Martin and I climbed Icarus, Mask of the Red Death, Eric and Fan Fair. All great routes, in particular traversing round from Llawder to the Eric was awesome, as I had never climbed on this section of crag before.
The route Climbed up a steep nose on good holds and gear, before the holds turned upside down and sideways, and the gear became more trick to place. The route then climbed up a lovely slabby arete.
Although the route Fan Fair which is a greatly under rated route, at HVS it takes the type of overhanging wall that you’d only expect from a climbing wall route ofm the same grade. Fortunately every hold is a not only big but totally positive as well. Anyway the weekend was great and I have attach a few of the piccies here.
