East Ridge of Y Garn

I have been on the East Ridge of Y Garn today with Tracy and Duncan who joined me a couple of times last year and wanted to progress their scrambling skills this week on our advanced scrambling, learn to lead course. Having ascended the ridge looking at the bigger picture of speed versus safety we then climbed the first pitch of Ordinary Route on the Idwal Slabs and looked at an abseil retreat off the crag. It has stayed dry all day which was much better than the forecast, its still bitterly cold though!
