Steve Pardoe's Cwm Cneifion Picture Page
February 2005 update 9/3/2005 - new pictures

Here are some rough and ready images from a very fortunate day of snow-plodding, with a little ice-climbing in Cwm Cneifion (or whatever it's called!) as a bonus. Big thanks to Adrian, Ant and Marek for an excellent day out, in really remarkable conditions.

Marek soloes the first decent ice smear...


...then puts his helmet on and takes a rope up for the more cautious among us...


...and sets up a welcome belay. See the lovely dinner plates!

Nice tight rope [AJ]


Getting started could be an issue...


...that's better!
