Spring in Snowdonia has arrived!

So after returning from Scotland and then a weeks holiday to find the snow melting and the drizzle returning, a week or amazing weather was a wonderful surprise. Warm evenings, blue skies, hazy valleys and the lack of climbing partners meant perfect scrambling was to be had. Lambs are in the fields, daffodils lining road sides spring-time is most defiantly upon us!

The first evening on Milestone, scrambling up some of the easier but polished route, downclimbing Milestone Gully and finially heading down the north ridge with the sunset.

The second was a quick morning hit on Needle Eyes Arete on Foel Goch, a wonderful lone ridge on an otherwise jam packed valley on the weekend.

An evening sun set on the Plas Y Brenin Lake, the view that isn’t goign to ever get boring!

And an evening on Little Tryfan, ticking everything below VDiff, with a beautifully hazy valley and a wonderful sunset.

Although the weather has turned windy and wet again, I think everyone’s looking forward to the clocks turning, longer evenings and drier weather…unless of course you’re a kayaker.
