Ridgewalker   on 10/09/17 @ 17:58 said:

maybe Sunday as well if an early start, working Sunday Night

Snowdoniawhite   on 10/09/17 @ 18:13 said:

Yes, I'm interested - Saturday and Sunday. Lovely.

iansmyname.....orisitjohn?   on 10/09/17 @ 19:30 said:

Sounds great Jane. I'm booked up that weekend though . Hope you get some good weather and some great scrambling in.

Louise - living life   on 10/09/17 @ 20:19 said:

sounds great not sure if I can make that weekend though - & hopefully making Tryfan this Saturday - 16th sept - weather permitting - you are welcome to join me & some non OD friends

Indiana Jane   on 10/09/17 @ 22:15 said:

iansmyname.......orisitjohn?: I thought you might have difficulty fitting it in but that is my only free weekend in October.
Louise - living life: Thanks for the offer of joining you this weekend but I've already got something planned for Saturday.
Ridgewalker: Snowdoniawhite: It'll be great to see you. I just hope we get good weather because the Tryfan/Y Gribin round is a classic scramble route.

Snowdoniawhite   on 11/09/17 @ 8:52 said:

Thanks Jane. It's always a gamble with the weather. I've done this one in all sorts of conditions; as long as it's not too windy. Dry and sunny would be nice and we might be lucky! Will you go ahead even if the group is small?

mirador   on 11/09/17 @ 11:37 said:

Would love to do this!

iansmyname.....orisitjohn?   on 11/09/17 @ 18:23 said:

Indiana Jane: Jane I may try and reschedule. Watch this space......

mountainsnmusic   on 11/09/17 @ 18:33 said:

Looking forward to it Jane

M3   on 12/09/17 @ 15:34 said:

IJ: Hi, promise I'm not copying. I researched my walks in detail, day before you posted and booked in to Pen Y Pass YH for 3 nights; so I was amazed when your invite appeared, like you can read my mind lol. Anyway potentially offers ODers choice of weekends, depending on weather. I'm dying to do The Watkin path most of all, but so weather dependent. I might do baby Siabod again if weather doesn't allow others, plus lower ones.

Maz   on 12/09/17 @ 18:59 said:

Accommodation options include the hostels at Idwal Cottage (Ogwen ), Capel Curig, BnB or bunkhouses at Capel Curig or Betws y Coed.
Just google them for options.

Ridgewalker   on 12/09/17 @ 19:41 said:

Its takes a very strong storm to keep me from scrambling, Flying Goats and sheep with a touch of ice, snow and sleet would probably do it

Indiana Jane   on 12/09/17 @ 19:46 said:

M3: There's not much point having two weekends so close together. If everyone is also free for 13th to 15th Oct then I will cancel my invite and we can all come on yours. Except that I can't do Sunday.
Is everyone happy with just joining Catherine's invite instead of this one?

M3   on 12/09/17 @ 20:43 said:

IJ: Of course that would be great but I don't want to cause a disturbance. Having a choice of two weekends(for some) is good, as the weather is unpredictable. I have to work part of your invite dates and so I couldn't do it anyway. Lucky for us the mountains aren't going anywhere anytime soon. But as you can't do Sunday shall we do Trfan and the Glyders (or just one) and Snowdon and leave Y Garn and Elidir Fawr for Sunday? I have read that the Trfan rock is quite grippy, but it's been a long time since I've done it. Certainly the top part of the Watkin, on the scree, would be not nice in dodgy weather. But we'll see. The pen y Pass youth hostel is like a palace btw.

Maz   on 13/09/17 @ 8:31 said:

I can't do Catherine's meet but obviously as a local I can do them again. Will wait to see what you decide.
Grippy rock or not, personally wouldn't do Tryfan if the weather was wet and windy. Remember it's a hot spot for sprained ankles and getting crag fast etc

Indiana Jane   on 13/09/17 @ 18:35 said:

M3: Tryfan is actually fairly slippy in the wet. Bristly Ridge is a bit better but best not to do them in the wet as Marion says.
They are putting steps in on the top part of the Watkin Path so it will eventually be much better but I'm not sure how far they have got yet. Still a mess for most of it I think.

iansmyname.....orisitjohn?   on 13/09/17 @ 20:12 said:

I'm confused now......easily done . Will it be Catherine's weekend that is going ahead?

iansmyname.....orisitjohn?   on 13/09/17 @ 20:36 said:

Suggestion. If Catherines weekend goes ahead. How about doing the Y'garn route on the Saturday for your dates Jane and either Siabod or the Llech Ddur spur on the Sunday for your weekend Jane?? What do you think?

M3   on 13/09/17 @ 21:59 said:

Maz and Indiana Jane: Thank you for the wise words regarding potentially wet and windy weather. Shame about the messy path on the Watkin where they're putting steps in, such a beautiful way up. I'll consider the Horseshoe instead, what's not to like. It's a shame to alter your invite details Jane as you already have definites. I'm going on Thurs 12 Oct and may just play it by ear, depending. It's such a fab playground isn't it?

Snowdoniawhite   on 14/09/17 @ 8:29 said:

I cannot do the weekend 13-15th so sticking to Jane's walk - if still on.

Ridgewalker   on 15/09/17 @ 17:23 said:

Indeed this week end is Splendid, As cant make the week end before, shall pitch my Van Fri Eve to catch a sunset Stroll on a Ridge

Indiana Jane   on 15/09/17 @ 20:58 said:

It looks like both weekends are on. I'll let Catherine have Tryfan and, as Ian says, I could do Llech Du Spur. It's a while since I last did it but I'm fairly sure I can remember the start, which is the critical part. No nice built path up there. I'll put specific walks on soon.
M3: Catherine I'd still do the Watkin Path if I was you. The top bit is not much worse than it usually is and some of it might be better.

iansmyname.....orisitjohn?   on 17/09/17 @ 1:01 said:

Jane that would be brilliant. I've been wanting to do the Llech Du Spur forever. Happy to hear you've done it before and I have read about it extensively. All reports say the same thing. Finding the start is critical. Also weather plays it's part, but that's the norm

mountainsnmusic   on 18/09/17 @ 20:48 said:

So it's Llech Ddu not Tryfan now Jane? I'm confused!

Snowdoniawhite   on 18/09/17 @ 21:03 said:

Ladies: I've booked a reasonably priced B&B in Capel Curig and since I've got a twin-bedroom, I can offer an accommodation to one if you don't mind sharing a room.

mountainsnmusic   on 19/09/17 @ 7:32 said:

Ah, checked out other invitations and get it now, it was the "let Catherine have Tryfan" comment I got confused at

Indiana Jane   on 19/09/17 @ 13:34 said:

mountainsmusic: Sorry I'm getting confused too. I did decide to leave the Tryfan invite as people who can't make Catherine's day may still want to do it. However I have put Llech Ddu Spur on for the Sunday as well.

Ridgewalker   on 19/09/17 @ 19:36 said:

One Day i shall get on Top of Adam & Eve and shall dance between them, it would have been silly of me to do it while on a solo dance

Snowdoniawhite   on 20/09/17 @ 9:08 said:

Ridgewalker: The rest of us will be taking photos and then call a helicopter for you.

iansmyname.....orisitjohn?   on 22/09/17 @ 21:12 said:

Snowdoniawhite: . Sliding up the Cannon stone is bad enough . Just getting up on to Adam and Eve is tricky. Not as easy as it looks

iansmyname.....orisitjohn?   on 22/09/17 @ 21:14 said:

Ridgewalker: Paul I will be more than happy to document your dance. Mobile and flares on hand...just in case it goes sideways

Snowdoniawhite   on 27/09/17 @ 10:10 said:

iansmyname....orisitjohn?: my point exactly. It looks great on photos but I just really don't like hospitals

iansmyname.....orisitjohn?   on 27/09/17 @ 18:57 said:

Snowdoniawhite: Does anyone like hospitals? It's a busy spot around Adam & Eve. If you fluff it. Do you want to go viral? It's a really sad world we live in, but that is the reality

Ucapajr   on 08/10/17 @ 10:52 said:

Hi there! There are lots of grades of scramble up Tryfan, from grade I to III and beyond. What sort of level are we looking at for this?

Indiana Jane   on 09/10/17 @ 12:55 said:

This will be the standard grade 1 scramble up the North Ridge of Tryfan and the grade 1 up Bristly Ridge. If I can remember the route and everyone one is a confident scrambler I might start up the Milestone Gully which is apparently a grade 2 minus. It is an enclosed route and not very technical but is very wet so unless we have had unusually dry weather for October I won't bother.

I don't have rope skills or even a rope so basic scrambling ability is assumed. I can't pull people up or even offer a confidence rope.

Ridgewalker   on 09/10/17 @ 13:42 said:

its going to be a scrambling delightfully dancing day without ropes

Dale   on 09/10/17 @ 13:43 said:

If I can get away from work in time to pitch my tent somewhere near the start, I would love to join you

Ucapajr   on 09/10/17 @ 18:13 said:

Roger that! Sounds fun Ok if I tag along then?

Snowdoniawhite   on 11/10/17 @ 9:31 said:

Ucapajr: Tryfan and Bristly always make a nice day walking, using your your legs and hands. Great views too. Should be done at least once a year I wouldn't miss it!

Ucapajr   on 11/10/17 @ 23:42 said:

I've never plucked up the courage to do bristly, I've only ever gone to Tryfan alone and bristly (chimney) looked like a quick way to the bottom (in the least comfortable way) once I got there so I always wimped out! Maybe I'll be in more experienced company this time

Indiana Jane   on 12/10/17 @ 18:15 said:

Ucapajr: Bristly Ridge is less intimidating that it looks. There are only a few short exposed moves. The first gully, if you get the right one, has some technical moves but is not difficult. If people are worried there is a route up that avoids the gully and is just a walk. I think many people head for the wrong gully at the start and that is harder.

Ucapajr   on 12/10/17 @ 19:00 said:

Hi Jane, thanks for the insight, that makes sense! I still might bring a rope (or some prosac) just in case

iansmyname.....orisitjohn?   on 14/10/17 @ 19:23 said:

Hi Jane. Fingers crossed for good weather next weekend. Looking forward to it

Ridgewalker   on 16/10/17 @ 15:05 said:

My Hands are tingling with anticipation of gripping those scrambling delights

Indiana Jane   on 16/10/17 @ 21:34 said:

It would be nice to meet up for a meal on the Saturday evening. What about the Ty'n y Coed in Capel Curig at 7pm (the one with the stage coach outside)?

Indiana Jane   on 16/10/17 @ 21:47 said:

The weather forecast is not looking good for either Saturday or Sunday at the moment with rain and fairly strong winds. However it is still quite a long way ahead so things might change. We might have to find somewhere a bit less ridgy to walk if it is windy.

Dale   on 16/10/17 @ 22:03 said:

Oh no! I am really looking forward to the Tryfan Trip. Going to expect the best until I know otherwise

Snowdoniawhite   on 18/10/17 @ 8:53 said:

Dale, I'll join you in hoping for better weather than forecasted at the moment. Doing Tryfan in rain is less pleasant but do-able; strong wind is a problem though. Yes please for dinner at Ty'n y Coed at 7pm. Thank you.

Ridgewalker   on 18/10/17 @ 15:37 said:

The weather shall be fine even if it keeps us focused..
Yes the evening venue for sharing the joys of the day is good haven't been there since last time

mirador   on 18/10/17 @ 16:31 said:

Plenty of wrong forecasts lately - fingers crossed. Ty'n y Coed is fine for Saturday. Had a quick look at the Go Below website for an possible alternative adventure out of the weather but this weekend was too booked up already!

Dale   on 18/10/17 @ 19:55 said:

I really really want to do tryfan again with bristly as the icing on the cake but it's a 4.5 hour drive and I can't do Sunday as need to be back for work on Monday. Soooooo thinking will probably do goathland to Whitby with a steam train back. Very different type of day but will wait in anticipation for another opportunity. Sorry to miss this adventure with you all

Dale   on 18/10/17 @ 19:58 said:

Ridgewalker, do you really think the weather will be fine? Is the universe only wobbling up North?

Dale   on 18/10/17 @ 19:59 said:

If you local folk think it's safe. .... I will travel

iansmyname.....orisitjohn?   on 18/10/17 @ 20:06 said:

Dale: I'm not local Dale. Travelling too. Hoping for decent weather but the reports not looking good. Sunday looks better. Caving Saturday....maybe.

Pebbles(Bea)   on 18/10/17 @ 21:58 said:

With this kind of weather...we need a miracle

iansmyname.....orisitjohn?   on 19/10/17 @ 10:21 said:

I'm thinking I may need to cancel the caravan. Heavy rain and high winds still forecast for Saturday

Indiana Jane   on 19/10/17 @ 13:53 said:

The weather forecast is for strong winds as well as rain on Saturday so we will not be scrambling. However we will meet at the time and place given above and will decide which of the many alternatives look best. There are some great low level walks.

Indiana Jane   on 19/10/17 @ 13:54 said:

I have made a booking at Ty'n y Coed for 6.45pm Saturday evening for 6 people. They are busy and couldn't fit us in later.

mountainsnmusic   on 19/10/17 @ 22:01 said:

The only time I've done Tryfan (32 years ago and 4 months pregnant) it was so windy we had to crawl at the top, ah well. I'll be there regardless Jane. Is there room on the Ty'n y Coed meal for me? No worries if not. Ruth

Indiana Jane   on 19/10/17 @ 22:19 said:

mountainsnmusic: At the moment you are one of the 6 definites so you can come to the meal. I'm not sure how many will come on the walk and want to stay for the meal.

Ridgewalker   on 20/10/17 @ 7:00 said:

As the life of Brian may suggest always look on the bright side of life. So i concede that my chance to dance from Adam & Eve is not looking desirable this week end, as Brian the storm sends his greetings, but its only a warm storm no severe Wind chill.. Sunsets friday Night, good outing sat followed by a chillaxed dinner. Splendid . time to sleep then be on my travels

Snowdoniawhite   on 20/10/17 @ 9:21 said:

Indiana Jane: I will be there - for the walk and meal.

Snowdoniawhite   on 20/10/17 @ 9:21 said:

Ridgewalker: Haha, I like that

mirador   on 20/10/17 @ 10:50 said:

I will be there for all as well - looks like a small and select band now!

M3   on 20/10/17 @ 11:28 said:

Good luck folks you’ll be in your element doing what you love most. May I suggest Siabod, as it’s safe (if you go left at the ridge and follow an easy path up) and it’s just grass, nothing dangerous on the other side. I did get soaked through last week but not my rucksack which had a thick bin liner inside. It was an adventure, an amazing natural spectacle. Anyway whatever your plans have fun

mountainsnmusic   on 20/10/17 @ 15:40 said:

We could do a linear walk of some sort with cars either ends. Sure Jane will sort us out! See everyone soon

Dale   on 20/10/17 @ 17:16 said:

I have a couple of weekends free before Christmas and would love to do Tryfan and Bristly Ridge if anybody is free to guide this again. Of course safe weather permitting!!! I expect you will all have a great time whatever you do this weekend, have fun

iansmyname.....orisitjohn?   on 21/10/17 @ 18:37 said:

Jane, great routes that require the conditions to really appriecate them. These invites need a repeat and hopefully better weather. I'll be waiting for that opportunity. Stay safe, Ian
