Cwm Glas Bach

With a one hour holdup on the A55, the Sunday evening drive home through the Prestatyn and Rhyl traffic really did not appeal, especially with the weather set fair for another day. Another night on the splendid Porth Dafarch Beach and we woke to a glorious Monday. With the whole of North Wales as our oyster, where to go?

Shady, not too far from the road and with fine climbing, and ideally somewhere we hadn’t been before…

Cwm Glas Bach sits on the south side of the Llanberis Pass, just opposite Beudy Mawr. I’ve gazed up at it numerous times from the front lawn at the hut, but this was the first time we’d actually been up for a look with a rack and a rope.

The Pass was looking immaculate


We started with a HVS on the Gravestones…


Then went on to the main crag where we bumped into Mike, John and Nicky (of all the crags in all of Wales, you wandered into this one…)


Here’s John leading The Stebbing


Plenty more here to come back for once my achilees is sorted, but a pleasant afternoon nonetheless.
