The Bochlwyd Horseshoe botch up? - Feb 2013

From the lay-by at Milestone Buttress we made our way up Tryfan via the North Ridge route and enjoyed scrambling on the sound if rather damp rock. Thankfully the large holds afforded secure grip and ensured that we didn't take flight to the winds. Lunch being taken in the lee of Adam and Eve before we headed South to Cwm Bochlwyd and the welcome shelter of a wall where the decision to abandon was made and we returned to the A5 via the path on the East of Tryfan thus avoiding the gale force westerlies. It was a disappointment not to have completed as planned but given the strong winds Bristly Ridge was perhaps better avoided and saved for a dry and sunny day.

Thanks go to the Ten hardy members who attended this meet on a cold, wet and windy Sunday.
