Sometimes it’s nice when you get the afternoon rain showers after weeks of hot weather. We took this in July, just after exploring an impressive series of waterfalls, down a part of a river we’d always looked at but never had a chance to go and do. The rainbow was massive, it came out just as the sun peaked under the clouds and exploded across the mountains in that 8pm golden colour. . #snowdonia #blaenauffestiniog #slate #rainbow #mountains #weather #northwales #rainbow🌈 #potofgold #storms #weather #sun #igerscymru #igerswales #wildwales #landscapephotography #exploringwales #visitwales #beautifulwales #discoverwales #northwalestagram #cymru #wales #lovewales #wales❤️

Canyon Doggo’s hiding from the rain in the van last weekend 🚚🌧 Mr Sparks (right) is a certified adventure dog, but recently Ruby’s (left) been getting trained up both at the crag and in the river. Sometimes though, they just want to be left behind where they can curl up in a bucket of wetsuits! Just one of those days... | Have you met Sparky or Ruby? Did they show you a good adventure? . #sparky #adventuredog #dog #labrador #doggo #snowdonia #vandog #itsraining #labradorretriever #dogstagram #dogsofinstagram #labsofinstagram #adventuredogsofficial #adventuredognation #guidedog #northwales #experienceadventure #findyourepic #allthegear #sleepanywhereanytime #dogbed #dogfriendly #dogfriends

Yellow weather warnings out for rain today.... more like weather warnings for getting sun burnt on the beach! The coastline around here has some of the most reliable weather in all of Snowdonia, so if you’re looking to come and stay we highly recommend it! . #snowdonia #harlech #beach #zigzags #snowdonia #northwales #beachholiday #weatherwarning #sun #sea #mountains #castellharlech #northwalesinstagram #snowdonianationalpark #igerscymru #igerswales #experienceadventure #goexplore #milesofsand #dolphins

There he is! Mr Seal, chilling in the estuary. At first he might appear a bit lonely, laying there on the island by himself. I don’t think he is though! I’ve got a feeling he comes up here for a mini holiday; some r+r, a bit of me time, and I’ve heard the fishing’s good up here 🎣 . #northwales #snowdonia #sealife #seal #river #estuary #porthmadog #portmeirion #solo #fishing #holiday #djimavicpro #dronestagram #igerscymru #visitwales

6 year old Theo going for it; this is the zip line off the 10m waterfall on our Canyoning trip. I love it when small dudes conquer their fear; no one else has got an excuse!

We had a nice one off paddling trip on the lower part of Dwyryd this week. Our journey took us past the surreal spot that is @visit_portmeirion and then round to the jungle estuary island of Ynys Gifftan. Once farmed, the island and its house have been uninhabited since the early 60s. After a mini picnic, we paddled back over the water before the tide left us high and dry! 🚣‍♂️🤙 . #portmeirion #kayak #kayaking #porthmadog #dwyrydestuary #afondwyryd #paddling #exploring #ynysgifftan #snowdonia #northwales #experienceadventure #desertisland #picnic #canoeing

Some say Mr Sparks is possibly the best dog in the world. What do you guys think? Sparky is definitely friendly, supporting, always psyched and 100% happy to jump in the river and save small children. She also likes chilling at the crag getting attention from everyone too... . #dog #doggo #labrador #labsofinstagram #labsofinsta #sparky #mrsparks #barmouth #mawddachestuary #rockclimbing #climbing #cragdog #adventuredog #dogstagram #dogsofinstagram #mansbestfriend #bestdogever #labradorretriever

Nice afternoon at Tremadog yesterday. Some classics at Pant Ifan; Silly Arête (e3 5c) and Fingerlicker (e4 6a). Loved it! Amazing routes and good company with @benclarkclimbing I really love the rock a Tremadog. We even stayed in the sun most of the day :) . #climb #climbing #rockclimbing #ukc #ukclimbing #tradclimbing #tremadog #pantifan #tradisrad #climbingpics #climbingpicturesofinstagram #northwales #snowdonia @szentclimbing @montaneofficial

Charlie on his first real trad lead in a while; Merlin Direct (hvs) at Tremadog. Busy day at the crag. I did a quick lap of Dragon (e2 6b); esoteric but quite good really! . #climb #climbing #rockclimbing #northwales #tremadog #tradclimbing

Sparks says ‘I’m not going swimming’. We had a nice paddle on the estuary this morning; avoiding the rain and the water was mirror flat. Reluctantly, Mr Sparks had to do a bit of doggy paddle after I threw her in halfway along. Good times... . #dog #labrador #snowdonia #northwales #kayaking #labradortetriever #adventuredog #doggo #porthmadog #dwyrydestuary #canoeing #river #dogswim #swimming

Pretty busy with work because it’s half term but we still had time for a quick hit on Crimson Crusier (e5 6a) at Craig Y Clipiau in the Moelwyns. A really cool line forging its way up this steep prow. The climbings not too difficult, occasionally sustained, but the gear is a bit fiddly and spaced. It’s got a mega finish; you’re right out there! . #craigyclipiau #climb #climbing #tradclimbing #northwalesclimbing #moelwyns #snowdonia #leadclimbing #northwales #tanygrisiau #climbingporn #tradisrad #afterwork #mountains #sun

Mark fully involved with the crux crack on Quatre Fois Direct (vs 4c) the line of the crag at the Upper Tier of Pant Ifan at Tremadog. It was busy, but there’s a reason; some of the best rock and 100% the best weather in Snowdonia, it can be popular... . #climb #climbing #tradclimbing #tremadog #pantifan #porthmadog #snowdonia #northwales #rockclimbing

Nice evening hit on the esoteric Welsh grit in the Rhinogs. Here’s Rach on the cruxy finale to the 3-start micro classic, Wilderness Grit (e3 6a). The rock is immaculate, the climbing engaging, and the surroundings spectacular. I forgot how good this line is! . #cwmbychan #rhinog #rhinogydd #romansteps #rhinogfawr #gritstone #climb #climbing #rockclimbing #tradclimbing #tradisrad #girlswhoclimb #climbergirl #mountains #snowdonia #esoterica

Rach has been going really well on the trad recently, ticking loads of classic routes in the e1-e3 range, even climbing Cream (e4 6a) at Tremadog after work last week. We’ve had 2 nice sunny days at St David’s, climbing these big sweeping 30m slabs. Technical, fingery and sustained, occasionally bold. Here’s Rach on today’s final route (I was frying), Beyond the Azimuth e1 5b. After going pretty wrong, with feet in the break, Rach said the E3 was easier. I tried, and couldn’t hold the crimp... . #stdavids #pembroke #rockclimbing #seacliff #sunsoutbunsout #tradclimbing #slabclimbing #bytheseaside #vanlife #roadtrip #climbing #girlswhoclimb #climbergirl #carregybarcud #sun #sea #waves #pembrokeshire #tradisrad

Some moody skies on the way home from Pembroke yesterday. We had some sun by the sea, and North Wales is looking really pleasant this weekend. . #aberystwyth #rainbow #snowdonia #northwales #weather #clouds #sun #rain #rainbow🌈 #moodyskies #fields #colours #weatherman

Mother (s)Carey’s Kitchen, a classic piece of limestone sea cliff in Pembroke. Luckily today the swell has died considerably. Yesterday, at this time, a huge wave would wash the face every 15/20mins or so. Exciting! . We managed a few of the classic e2’s yesterday, hopefully get some more good routes done today, although maybe not the awesome looking Klingon (e5) on the Space Face (far right, very steep!). . #pembroke #climb #climbing #seacliff #seagull #fulmar #seabird #mothercarey #sea #waves #swell #rockclimb #rockclimbing #girlswhoclimb #climbergirl #roadtrip #vanlife

Spot Rachel! A good day in the slate; Rachel onsighted Goose Creature (e3 6a) and I fell off it a few times... We then went round to California and did Waves of Inspiration (e5 6a), another big classic. Not too dangerous, but not too hard either. Awesome climbing! Time to cash in our Spa vouchers (Christmas present) and get a good bit of r+r. . #llanberis #slate #dinorwic #dinorwigquarry #dinorwig #dinorwicquarry #slateclimbing #slateclimb #tradclimbing #tradisrade #seaofslate #seaofgrey #girlswhoclimb #climbergirl #rockclimbing #climbing #whereswally

Llyn Dinas, in the Gwynant Valley near Beddgelert. The river flows down off Snowdon, filling a series of lakes before passing through Beddgelert and dropping in to the Afon Glaslyn gorge. This makes a perfect place for a picnic, and there’s a nice, well paved path around the lake. Next time you’ve got an hour, stop by, it’s beautiful! . #beddgelert #northwales #snowdonia #llyngwynant #llyndinas #glaslyn #afonglaslyn #lake #mountains #panorama #beach #forest #waterfall #exploresnowdonia #secretsnowdonia #wildswimming #aerialshot
