Heartbreaking, the major reason why we left, I know it was meant to be shared, but by people who appreciated it.

Planning application notice has been posted at Geirionydd that they intend making a stretch of road a no stopping zone other than for essential dropping off/picking up between  Ist of April to the 30th of September.
Good!
Meanwhile the number of people up there had dropped off dramatically today. Lots of room in the car park but still one van ignoring the parking signs and parked at the bottom end of the lake.

Two stories this morning...........

'We lay flat, clung to rocks but 'tornado' winds took our gear - we had to turn back or one of us would die on Snowdon'
A group of climbers from London had a lucky escape after being battered by “tornado-strength” winds on the mountain

“We just watched things like gloves, flasks and walking sticks fly around in the air above us,” said Londoner Joey Edworthy, 29.
“It was like being in one those tornados you see in America.

“We made it back down but looking back we had a very lucky escape.”

After gale force winds tore across Snowdonia at the weekend, Joey and a number of experienced climbers took to social media to
highlight the folly of climbing mountains without the proper gear.

One said he had seen some “outrageously ill-prepared walkers” on the mountain.

It's been clear for several days, now, this was never going to be a safe time to climb any of our mountains.
