Tremadog Festival

The Tremadog festival is all about looking after the crags (especially the ones managed by the BMC) at Tremadog. Which mostly means keeping the routes clear of the encroaching ivy and other plant life that keeps endlessly growing up the cliff (imagine it, plants that grow! 😉 ).

However, whilst all that good work was taking place (mostly on Bwlch y Moch) Steve, Laetitia and I headed over to check routes for the new Tremadog guidebook on Craig y Gesail. A crag with a reputation of being the poor neighbour of the glamourous Pant Ifan, Bwlch y Moch, etc…
