Year 9 Mountaineering Club Scramble And Hill Walk In Snowdonia

Published Wednesday 3rd of July 2019 12:07:06 PM

After training with a day of walking in the Brecon Beacons and two days of rock climbing at Symonds Yat in the Wye Valley, the Mountaineering Club headed for Snowdonia for three days of scrambling and hillwalking. On day one the pupils tackled the North Ridge of Tryfan before descending the South Ridge and returning via Cwm Tryfan to the Ogwen Valley. On day two high winds prevented the planned for traverse of Grib Goch and instead the Southern Circuit of the Carneddau was completed with three 3000ft peaks ascended and some good scrambling found on Pen yr Ole Wen and Pen yr Helgi Du. The final day saw an ascent of the Gribin Ridge and Glyder Fawr in thick mist before an atmospheric descent back to the valley floor via Devil’s Kitchen.
