Late Winter Sunshine at Tremadog

There is defiantly a buzz in North Wales this time of year. Climbers are 'de-winterising' their racks and trying to get fit ready for sunny rock climbing. Even though there has been no snow for a while (apart from the odd sprinkle on the tops) its been pretty chilly and often wet. Today was the first proper t-shirt climbing day for me, and what a day it was!

I went to Tremadog with Barni, Luke and Ewan. Luke and I climbed a good right-to-left traverse of Grim Wall called Sometime E3 6a. It lacked any stars in the guidebook but the route certainly had cool positions and nice non-polished rock.

We then had a look at the meaty jamming top pitch of The Neb Direct E3/4. After a team effort Barni and Luke manage a clean ascent with gear pre-placed.
