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

Sunbeams out over the sea yesterday. We went hunting for dinner on the beach. Normally I’ve always come back with more than enough mussels but for some reason there weren’t any? On the plus side we didn’t get rained on, and there were some dark clouds blowing in off the ocean... . #llandanwg #shellisland #harlech #harlechbeach #beach #sun #sunray #sunbeam #northwales #snowdonia #cardiganbay #rocks #musselcollecting #wildfood #foraging #collectingfood #freshfood #beachcombing #stormy #storms #weather #sea #waves #sand

There’s currently a wildfire tearing through the Aberglaslyn gorge just downstream of Beddgelert. . A similar incident was reported last night above Blaenau Ffestiniog, with some residents having been evacuated from their homes. This is probably the driest Easter I can remember, and there’s a lot of dry, dead foliage on the floor at the moment. . The 3 weeks dry spell seems have come to an end at just the right moment, the first drops of rain have started falling, and the fire should be under control soon. I’ve no idea how it was started. Maybe it’s good for the invasive Rhododendron population that’s a problem here? . #mountain #beddgelert #snowdonia #fire #forestfire #mountainfire #glaslyn #aberglaslyn #sygyncoppermine #aberglasslyn #glaslyn #beddgelertforest #beddgelertriver #firefighter #fireservice #farm #drone #wildfires #wildfire #landscape #mountainscenery #igerscymru #igerswales #walesonline #snowdonianationalpark

The Cwm Pen Llafar sheepfold 🐑 from the ground, it’s doesn’t look like much. From above, you can appreciate the intricacies and compartments that belong to the sheepfold structure; like pieces of a honeycomb. The herd would gather in the main chamber, and each shepherd would separate out his own sheep into his side enclosure. . I would imagine the entrance is on the right. This leads to the two main central pens and from here, all the satellite pens connect. On the left side you can see the alley leading down to the river. This allowed farmers to wash their sheep before taking them off the mountain to sell, meaning their coat of wool was clean! . This multi-cellular sheepfold is one of the most interesting and well preserved of its kind, with nearly all of these being situated in the Carneddau mountain range. I think this dates back to the 1700s. . #sheepfold #carneddau #criblem #farm #smallholding #birdseye #cwnpenllan #carnedd #sheepfolds #archeology #river #stream #mountains #exploring #eryri #snowdonia #scenery #landscape #farming #farmer #fields #sheepfarmer #sheepfarming #victorianarchitecture #industrialarcheology #industrialarchitecture

A bit of a neglected gem at Tremadog today 💎 ‘Mangoletsi’ (e3 6a) takes an awesome looking line up a big slab and through a crack in the huge roof right of Barbarian. Really contrasting climbing and a hard burly crux pulling through. Nice and safe though, so there’s no reason not to commit and give it 110%!! . #tradclimbing #tremadog #tremadogclimbing #craigpantifan #pantifan #snowdonia #porthmadog #climb #climbing #rockclimbing #girlswhoclimb #climbergirl #tradisrad #llanberistradfest2019 #dmm #spring #colours #forest #landscape #springcolors #dolerite

Another day another Tremadog classic. ‘Spare Rib’ e4 6a. The last in the trio of hard arête lines on Pant Ifan (Cardiac Arete and Silly Arête being the other two). . The first pitch has a really hard crux sequence, laybacking a wild fin above a shite peg and blue micro cam. The second pitch has an amazing crux; make a nest of gear in the roof and swing left on to the face, then truck on up the arête, leaving the gear long behind 🥺 . #tremadog #tremadogclimbing #sillyarete #arete #climb #climbing #tradclimbing #climbinginwales #tradisrad #leadclimbing #classicclimbs #springclimbing #northwales #porthmadog #afterworkclimb #dontlookback #keepontruckin

Two classics at Tremadog yesterday; Rach did Falcon (e1 5c) and then I did Vulcan (e4 6a). Both awesome lines on some of the best rock at Tremadog. Falcon has a hard start and then great face and crack climbing. Vulcan has some really technical and mega sustained corner/groove climbing. I had to give myself a bit of a talking to quite early on!! . #tremadog #vulcan #porthmadog #wales #snowdonia #climb #climbing #rockclimbing #pantifan #tremadogclimbing #leadclimbing #tradclimbing #tradisrad #cornercrack #girlswhoclimb #girlswhoclimbofficial #climbergirl #afterwork #sunsoutgunsout💪

A trip up to Anglesey today it’s search of shelter and sun. We visited the awesome looking sea cliff of Rhoscolyn; after abseiling in to Fallen Block Zawn and realising the tide was about to catch us out, we scrambled round to the main face. . We ticked the crag classic ‘The Sun’ e3 5c. A great pretty cool overhanging corner. Mainly steady, but the crux nearly had me off. I’m pretty sure I should have bridges it, not laybacked the overhanging arête with poor feet! It was a bit windy and wet, so we called it a day and went to Newborough. . #northwales #anglesey #rhoscolyn #rhoscolynbeach #ynysmon #ynysmôn #seacliff #tradclimbing #walesclimbing #climb #rockclimbing #girlswhoclimb #climbergirl #sea #tradisrad #livebreathoutdoors #dayoff

Easter is fast approaching and our 2019 is about to kick off 🐣 ☀️💦🚣‍♀️🤘 . Zip-lines are the in thing in North Wales at the moment. If you want to send a real one, book on to our Canyon or Canyon Xtreme trip. These are real adventures, with real excitement and real dangers. . From the top of this waterfall, the only way is off edge. No backing out, no one to press the ‘release’ button; you’re there, you’re looking down, and you’ve got to commit. Go for it, take a deep breath and jump off the edge! No one else can do it for you 🤣 . #wales #snowdonia #zipline #ziplining #zipsafari #canyoning #adventureactivities #yearofadventure #experienceadventure #waterfall #criccieth #bala #goforit #noturningback #igerscymru #coedybrenin #activitiesinwales #gorgescrambling #canyoneering #waterfalls

The ‘slide of no return’. Sometimes no means go; you’re committed on this one. The good thing about this feature is, whilst sitting there on the edge at the top, you can’t really see what you’re letting yourself in for. This is lucky really, because if you could, I think we would have a much harder time sending people off it! This is the only really committing feature on our Canyon Xtreme trip, and a lot of people will agree that’s its the most fun bit of the adventure! . Come and join us, face your fears, experience a real life adventure in Snowdonia and come and see for yourself what canyoning is all about! . #snowdonia #northwales #canyoning #barmouth #canyon #experienceadventure #betwsycoed #harlech #dontlookdown #northwalesadventures #snowdoniaadventures #canyonxtreme #slideofnoreturn #river #waterfall #bleanauffestiniog #zipline #getinvolved #holidayinwales #adventureinwales #easteradventures #stagideas #henideas #stagdo #henweekend

Everyone knows Mr Sparks is the best adventure dog ever. If you come out with us chances are Sparky’s going to be part of the adventure too. Even if you don’t like dogs, you’ll probably like Mr Sparks! She loves coming down the river, swimming in the pools, chasing sticks, sunbathing at the crag, and being chief navigator on the front of a kayak. Maybe you’ve already met Sparky before? Was it a good trip?! . #adventuredog #labrador #mrsparks #sparky #dog #extremedog #mansbestfriend #canyon #canyoning #nodogs #dogkisses #labradorretriever #labsofinsta #labsofinstagram #wales #snowdonia #dogwalk #dogatwork #familyadventure

Keeping it Xtreme, international style. It’s nice to be out on the skis again for a weeks trip to Andorra! We’re in the GrandValira ski area; the snows nice, the suns out and the beers are cold 😃it was a nice run home yesterday down the World Cup track. It would be pretty exciting hitting this run flat out, there’s a few big steep corners in there!! . #andorra #eltarter #ski #skiing #snowboarding #andorralavella #skiandorra #mountains #snow #springskiing #worldcuptrack #blackrun #grandvalira #familyskiing
