The run of fantastic blue-sky weather has continued here in Llanberis, with winter routes still being climbed all over the place and rock climbs being ticked in warm sunshine.
Recently I was out on Tremadog ticking a few classics, including the brilliant crack of Neb Direct.
Neb has a bit of a reputation for being a stopper, but as I get older I find things like this easier and easier. That’s not to say I cruised up it, but I certainly felt well in control and I had a few grades in hand.
Pete Robins was there with a camera crew and they were filming for the new DMM dragon cams, which looked very nice indeed.
It was interesting to see 4 climbers all climb or attempt to climb the same route. Pete had to run laps on Neb for the camera, and I think he zipped up it 3 times in a row. With all his sport and bouldering of late, he still hasn’t forgotten how to crack climb, that’s for sure.
This weekend it’s the Llanberis Mountain Film Festival, Pete and I are doing a joint talk for DMM on the Saturday evening. It should be a good show, so if anyone is free – come and join us, there’s bound to be tickets left!
