Magic Cluster

Lucky for me the local climbing club were off to Crafnant again, the hut is outstanding, and the bouldering is pretty good! Ok - And as Cheryl Cole would say "totally amazing"
Early morning sun over the cluster
Dry boulders dry - A good view - The landings are good in places, honest!
Went for a drive down the Pass in the morning giving the boulders some time to dry - It was good to see a lot of climbers down the pass, This could have been a mistake as the valley was dull and misty when we returned. had a sweep of the cluster - very slippery! one shin injury later.... got the shoes on for a new problem.
Prawns and Ribs F5+ - If your still hungry you can try the sit starter - I couldn't manage it 
Inspiring bouldering - With some of the landings now made safe
Here comes the mist 
Attempted a night session with Rich at 11pm  failed due to - visibility 3m + torch beam 5m + Ice = No chance
Day two - Keen to try some of the developed new lines I had seen the day before and some unclimbed stuff - still felt positive even after the damp night - Lisa joined me and soon after Chris Davies turned up - Psyched for new lines and enjoying the established circuit 
Chris working a line on the Wonderwall block
A block needing some attention - A big reach start - finishing right of the spike on the sloping top - felt easier this time held the top, placed the heel up - could of topped out if it was dry? Also got the moves on an arete on the right hand edge of the field, really good, did the stand and the crux from the sit, had to rush home so never linked....
