Amphitheatre Buttress, Craig yr Ysfa

~ Monday, 4th May 2009

Dave Tucker and Chris Alltree are coming to the Alps with me this summer. We wanted a nice day out on great rock and on alpine style terrain.

Ampitheatre Buttress yesterday was ideal. The rock was clean and dry and the bank holiday crowds were missing.

The flora and fauna was properly wild, adding more atmosphere to this great route.
 

The ridge had some superb climbing, with great moves and positions.

How this route doesn't get into Classic Rock I don't know. Great Gully must be something really special!
