Spring Rock

Psyche is always high at this time of year. The winter has been long and cold and my hands are permanently in the shape of ice tool handles. There is a need to go rock climbing, and spring-time in North Wales usually delivers the weather for it.

First comfortable belay for 6 hours! One pitch from the top on Ordinary Route (E5), Gogarth.

Now we just need the snow to melt so we can resume sunny rock climbing!
