A 5.30pm start resulted in a stunningly crisp ascent of Tryfan via Milestone Buttress in the evening light, barely requiring headtorches. Nipping accross to Bristly Ridge, some Grade 3 (TH) variations were pleasantly committing in the dark and offered quickest access to the Cantilever for a Jetboil dinner. Night-nav practice for Tom’s ML across the […]
