Case in point: Beddgelert forest, home to the Baboon. This lost highball pillar is now encased in dense pine forest. A friend Glyn managed to find it using Googlemaps (the coordinates in NWB are a bit out, its 53.009843, 4.146127). Inspired by this I started looking at other rocky stubbs buried in the forest. One wet day I turned on location on my phone, booted up the map (delve a lot in a wifi area, and it keeps a cache once once your out of signal) and dived into the forest!
Slopey landing, but enough to warrant a return visit with a patio team!
My random map searches has also led me off down the hill walkers paths, it may be a slog in, but a mountain bike is totally feasible if I find things to work on
Looking toward Bwlch Cwm Llan
Sunny dolerite crag..
..One realistic thing to play on
See a rock, climb a rock..
Much wandering later found me a roof crack!
Abet an awkward mix of tight and baggy fingers, with nothing in between, tape was required
Heading back to the car I found this much bigger roof:
the rock is a bit tut, but it gives some very strong climbing. Its certainly something I'd consider returning to
Finally, My new Muira's have arrived!
There's treasure everywhere..
