It looked like it was going to be full winter conditions for this one but as so often happens, Wales warmed up rather quickly and there was just a small patch of snow by one wall when I got there on Friday night. Undeterred a small group set off up Tryfan on Saturday to search out the last of the snow, which was duly found.

Returning to the hut on Saturday a select band of KMCers were waiting for their dinner. Al provided pre dinner entertainment by setting up a rope slide which verged between fun and occasionally close to lethal. Everyone sat down to a dinner of soup followed by roast pork or vegetable chilli and enjoyed a superb range of deserts provided by Trish.

Sunday saw people heading off not too early for walks and climbs in the pass, Capel Curig, Snowdon and Carneddau areas. A good time was had by all.
