Cwm Idwal Scrambling

I have been out with repeat clients Mat & Karolina today for some roped scrambling. They come out for a day each summer with me and a couple of days each winter and its great to see the progression each time we meet up. Today they wanted to climb a grade 2 scramble for themselves with me alongside. We headed into Cwm Idwal and did a mixture of North West Face Route (2) and the Idwal Staircase (2) before abseiling off into Seniors Gully. It stayed warm and dry all day and we had an excellent day out in this green and pleasant land. (The rain has been good for the colours in the mountains!)

Oh the beautiful Cwm Idwal - love seeing these photos - I love scrambling but grade 1 my limit so far although I do wonder if that gully up to bristly ridge is teetering on a grade 2! Great photos, great blog, following!
