Winter climbing starts in Wales
Bookmark and Share
The first winter climbs of the season have been taking place in Wales, following the arrival of colder weather in the past few days.

Helena Robinson and John Orr from the Pla Y Brenin National Mountain Centre in Snowdonia took advantage of the first snow by climbing the Clogwyn y Person A lc rete below Crib Y Ddysgl.

The centre said there were "deep drifts and whiteout conditions" on the hills and added: "Looking around the mountains of north Wales, a substantial covering of snow is present on their upper reaches."

It stated that now is a good time to get hold of some winter climbing gear and noted that the centre's own courses on climbing in the Welsh winter are available.

Crib Y Ddysgl is the second highest top in Snowdonia at 3,495 ft (1,065m) and forms part of the famous Snowdon Horseshoe, which also includes the summits of Crib Goch, Snowdon itself and Y Lliwedd.
