Snowdonia Climbing and Filming Work

Classic Rock Climbs of Snowdonia

On Sunday evening, I traveled up to Snowdonia with Phil for a day's personal climbing before three days filming work with Jerry. The weather was fantastic and the crags were in super condition. It would have been rude to not climb in the Pass! We first got on a great three pitch route on the East Wing of Dinas Mot called Gollum, then headed over to the West Wing to climb the five pitch Jubilee Climb. Jerry joined us at the hut that night and plans were formed for the three days filming. On Tuesday we headed over to Carreg Wastad and filmed an ascent of Crackstone Rib, a totally amazing Severe that goes in two pitches. The second day we ventured into the Slate Quarries and film the route Seamstress, a three star VS. On our last day, still baked in sun, we slowly carried all of the gear up to Dinas Cromlech and filmed the super classic Cemetery Gates, a two pitch E1 given to us by the legends Joe Brown and Don Whillans. Cheers Jerry and Phil for all the efforts...
