Monday 11 June - Gogarth

Left Bills at 06:30 to drop Caitlin off at OB Aberdovey for work exspirence. Dad then drove use to Anglesey.

Lighthouse Arete - VS 4c ***. With William Ripley.

The guide book described this route as, "the start of many Gogarth apprenticeships". Sounds good to me. Very similar to Chair Ladder with the wave cut platform. Dad lead the first pitch, I lead the top two to the top. Great route, I suprised how difficult the rock was to read.

Lighthouse Arete Direct - VS 4c ***. With William Ripley.

Dad lead the first pitch, intending to combine it with Blanco. He went off route and i ran it out to the top.

Bezel - VS 5a *. With William Ripley.

We then headed over to the upper tier, intending to do Parklane/Doomsville or one of the HVS, however it was begining to rain so we did Bezel instead. Dad lead the first pitch, I got the 5a pitch, which had this really cool move over an overhang. Good route. Enjoyed.
