Llanberis Meet

A few images of our ascent of Snowdon via Crib Goch. 

I think it must be the first time I have ever struggled to get a photo at a summit cairn because of the number of people.

Back at base camp recounting our epic!

Llanberis meet: 22nd - 25 May (3 nights)

Gloucestershire Mountaineering Club hut. 

The hut was located in the village of Deiniolen a couple of miles from Llanberis and perfect for the hills and a wee bit of exploring.
This was the first club trip to Wales for a long time and a few of the club took the opportunity to extend the trip, see a bit of the tourist stuff and do a hill.

The trip started with a superb meal.

The team split into different parties.  
The Tryfan team consisted of Christine, Kevin, Bob, Jim and myself, Allan.

The start of Tryfan

A steep start .......

got steeper.

With lots of interesting wee bits.
This one is the Cannon.

Nice place for a seat.

The only way is up, but their is lots of variations.

Adam and Eve, the rock pillars.  We didn't try the step from one to another.

The summit was a busy place.

A nice spot for second lunch while the rest of the team take on some more unpronounceable tops.

A seat in the sun after a hard day.
