A Great Day on Lliwedd

I had a great day guiding a regular client Simon on Lliwedd. He had wanted to do a mini enchainment. Instead I decided to go to head up Lliwedd and tick the classic Avalanche/Red Wall/Longland’s Continuation. About 12 pitches of climbing at severe or below.

I think in a month or so there is an article on Seven Severes in Snowdonia that I wrote for Climber magazine. Hopefully you’ll like it, and this is one of those route I chose. From the look on Simon’s face I am pretty sure he loved it too, but whats not to like about a 12 pitch three star route in North Wales, in a heat wave.

There was one minor hiccup, I forgot the guide after showing the route to simon in the cafe this morning. Fortunately I have climbed it at least three times and so how remembered where it went. A line of chalk also helped a bit!
