I have for many years wanted to do the infamous South Stack to North Stack trip via the sea. This would usually require the use of a sea kayak, however I have finally done the trip, but in a speed boat. I have to say it is the way to do it, and I can’t recommend the trip enough.
I was doing some work for RockFax, tough work but someone had to do it! I took hundreds of pictures of the cliffs, and even got a couple of some people climbing. One team on Right-Hand Red Walls and the other on Dream…
It was a cracking day with an almost mill pond sea and blue skies. We were against the clock as there was cloud forecast to encroach on the area in the afternoon, which was the time we needed to be there to get the right light on the cliff. I have put up a couple of Low res images of the overview shots. You’ll have to wait until the new RockFax guide to North Wales to comes out to see the rest of the shots.
I was taken round by an old colleague from the Conway Centre Brian, who now runs a powerboat company out of Rhosneiger. He not only runs courses on how to drive boats, but will take you on your very own tour of the cliff of Gogarth for a very reasonable price, on his 150hp rib. I can’t recommend him enough, or the trip, seeing the cliffs from the sea is something to behold, and not having to sit in a Sea Kayak, made it really enjoyable.
