Cheers TacoDelRio, hope to get out tomorrow `Wednesday`.
As it`s snowed quite a lot on the hills it`ll have to be ice climbing, avalanche dangers on the gullies !

This is a fantastic looking climb. To me it looks like the crux is up there to the right of the upper alcove. Very aesthetic picture. Makes me googly for a good pitch!

Hi there, your right about where the crux is, it`s a two pitch route forshortrned as usual as photos from the belay does not show how steep or long the route is ! thanks.

Great stuff Mills, this is on Clogwyn y Geifr right?

Yes r/h side Clogwyn y Geifr, just to the left of Devil`s Cellar.
Everything in the Cwm is in stonking conditions now, I think even Devil`s Appendix is in !
Did a newroute there last week with Calum Muskett, `Devil`s child` grade 7/5 exciting stuff, heading up to Cwm Cneifion on saturday to try `El Mancho`.

Congrats on the FA, sounds great. My ambitions for the weekend are a bit more modest and very much depend who I end up climbing with. Do you know if the gullys are in condtion yet, or are they still a bit avalanche prone?

Hi Dan, looking good for tomorrow (Saturday), Sunday really cold and snowy with high winds.
Has not snowed all week, been really sunny and cold so I would assume that most gullies should be fine, you can make your own judgment on reaching your climb, take care and be safe! oh and have some fun as well.
