Re: Pavey Ark/Harrison Stickle

Sorry didn't get a photo of the bad step, it is a bit crumbley in places and some of the hand pulls were loose, not the easiest place to take photos especially climbing in a group :o

Re: Circuit of Llyn Cowlyd Reservoir

Yes it was a nice but long day, we have done the Snowdon Horseshoe and the Carneddau, also the Glyders and Tryfan, its great to go to other peaks as the countryside is so beautiful and you can get away from the crowds that appear on the bigger names, you certainly are lucky to live around there.
