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

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.
