One Welsh Winter Day!


Good Afternoon Summit Posters!


During the recent extended winter conditions found in Snowdonia, Wales earlier in the year, my partners in crime and I managed a quick smash and grab raid on the modest but classic routes “Sergeant’s Gully” and “Parsley Fern Left Hand” on a baltic, but perfect day of weather with the surrounding mountains looking positively alpine. The area was in full-on winter condition and the routes provided most excellent sport. Unsurprisingly, being a glorious Easter weekend, the 2 routes were very busy (with associated falling debris and all!) so there are quite a lot of unknown solo and roped climbers featured, so if you were in this area around that weekend do have a look as you may recognize yourself immortalised on film and do let us know if you see yourself! Anyway the entertainment was duly recorded so for anyone interested in viewing a short HD film then please use the following embedded link:

 


All constructive feedback welcome and hopefully it will inspire a few folks to visit this superb area next time it is in winter nick! If you wish to sample the full High Def experience and your computer has enough va va voom, you should be able to change the "Quality" icon to at least 720p HD in the bottom right hand corner on the You Tube screen. :-)

Cheers


Dave
