Nice video Scoob; makes Crib Goch look quite narrow. 8) Hate to be a pedantic old fart but 'The Snowdon Horseshoe' includes Y Lliwedd. :? Good stuff all the same. :)

Yeah we're back mate, actually came home a little early as the rain moved into Seattle, we planned to spend some time in the mountains in Yoho, then Sarah decided to wrestle the flip flop of doom on the stairs and took a good tumble, she's been on crutches since July 29th and I've been on nursing/housekeeping duties :roll:

Just got out today (at last) for a tough scramble near Highwood Pass, I'll get it posted sometime between my nursing/housekeeping duties :lol: :lol:

Aww that's terrible news :( Really hope Sarah gets better soon, always thought flip flops were lethal.
Tell her we're asking for her :D
