Tremadog Esoteria

Si on Daddy Cool

Tremadog was the crag of choice today, headed there with Lakey, who is a new father. So I suggested we climb Daddy Cool, a great route that see’s few ascents. Probably because its goey for E2. He stormed up that, and I climbed the top pitch. On the descent I was reminded of Heartline an E2 on the Oakover Buttress.

I only climbed it at the tail end of last year so I let Simon do that. It was then my turn so again went for a less esoteric, but still not as popular as many route of its grade First Slip. I last climbed this with Tom, when I was at University the first time. Some 15 years ago now. Was a bit of a alzhiemers onsight until I got to the upper groove. Where I remembered the horror.

I opted for the less well protected balancy moves up the right arete, rather than trying to split myself in half by bridging up that blank looking groove! Great day out.
