Giveaway Project of the Month - November

Bit of a funny one this month, as although I knew at some point I wanted to undergo something at this location, I'm not sure what..

Behold the Chasm of the Snowdon Lady Copper Mine!

This impressive hole is found above Ben's Bunkhouse near Nant Peris and has previously been explored by Mr Crook (and Prussiked out of again). I'm sure you have noted its lush colouration and aesthetic rock bridges, mainly a touch too damp for standard climbing, but an exemplary situation for an adventure!

I have theorised that a weighted line may secure protection from the architecture, providing for an unconventional ascent. Also, if this winter follows through on all its promises, a truly memorable winter "condition" line may be experienced.


Following a Tip off by Pete Robbins...

I discovered these steps
I look forward to discovering what lies beyond...

Things that make me happy

Firstly, This month saw me leading outside for the First time since May with some very special friends.

Last week I returned to micro adventures, I was granted an hour to investigate a rumour that some sponsored heroes were visiting scrag end..

Scrag end, with the posh Golgotha Buttress at the top

The Alien Space craft (see film one) and my vantage point for the scrag end photo

The view off the end of the craft

Swag left by sponsored heroes and my hat (misplaced here in 2008)

I'm sure the usual channels with report the lads adventures, I was just happy to be back in scrag end. I might even come back with a rope someday...
