High on Suicide Wall, Cwm Idwal
This is the classic Suicide Wall Route 1 E2 5c (5.10c/d) in the beautiful Nature Reserve of Cwm Idwal, Snowdonia, North Wales.
It was an extraordinarily bold lead for its day by C. Preston (07.10.1945)
In this photo is Ioan Doyle, taken 3 yrs ago when he was 16 yrs old. In that year Ioan ascended many E5s (5.11d/5.12a,b) He has since gone on to repeat hard traditional routes up to E8 (5.13d/5.14a) and climbed sport routes up to F8b (5.13d).
