This is my stomping ground - not quite the Highlands, but reasonably acceptable, no? Glad you had good weather - clag is the same the world over :( . Looks like you had a great time.

I'm surprised you opted to do the route anti-clockwise, which meant a downclimb of Bristly Ridge; but good on you!

And no doubt you jumped between Adam and Eve, in the best tradition.... :lol:

Wales is superb! :D we can't wait to come back. We done the route that way cause we were gonna add Elidir Fawr but decided we never had enough time

Aye the downclimb :shock: we did wonder when we passed climbers with helmets on and ropes :lol:
All in all a great trip and only 5 Furths left in Wales

Awesome route. These are some of my favourite mountains. Climbing down bristly ridge must have been hairy!
