The day started off with a scramble up Crib Lem Spur in the Carneddau, Its a great grade one scramble up the North side of Carnedd Llewelyn. There was still a little bit of snow on the Black Ladders and near the top.

Wednesday was the first sunny day for a while, when we got back we decided to make the most of it. We headed down to Criccieth beach for some sunny bouldering.
The bouldering on Criccieth beach is not well know, it only gets a brief mention in North Wales Bouldering guidebook. It deserves more attention. It it situated below the castle. The bouldering consists of a traverse, usually done from left to right with increasing difficulty. The crux is probably V4ish bit the length of the traverse makes it a proper pump feast.
Amy took some great videos showing the quality of the bouldering, featuring me struggling along the crux of the traverse.
