Exams over Gwen and I headed to Tremadog in search of dry rock. I'm a pretty big fan of Tremadog and have spent more time there since living in Bangor than perhaps any other crag. I suppose this is for a number of reasons, but mainly because the rock is excellent, great fun to climb on and normally offers bomber gear.
Pulling up beneath the Vector Buttress the crag was a little wetter than I'd hoped. We both descided that it would be good to blow the cobwebs off by revisiting some old favorites. We headed for Merlin Direct first. Gwen lead the easy bottom pitch and I led the top, which offers brilliant well protected climbing, on good holds, with a tricky reach to top out. HVS heaven.

In other news I acquired a new camera the other day through some dodgy deal. I haven't had much luck with cameras. I either drop them, they get nicked or I buy half broken ones off ebay due to my moronic inability to read. Anyway my new camera is a second hand Nikon and it seems to be in full working order. I'm pretty pleased with this photo of the Menai Bridge I snapped on my way home.
