In short: The weather held out for the weekend, Cloggy was dry, so Cloggy dwellers were late back on the Saturday evening. No one thought to call for a helicopter, which was lucky as it was already out there picking up some other dudes. Plenty of action on both days, with some members leaving the hut before 10:00am. Cheers for being there.
June is going to be so dry that every route near the hut will be climbable. There is an intriguing bus service from Llanberis to Pen y Pass, recently tested out for a sortie on the Glyders side of the pass, traversing back to the hut. The service could be used to check out the Snowdon side. Such as - amble over to Lliwedd, bag a few routes, wander off to du'r Arddu or Ddysgl or Cyrn Las, exercise a little more, meander back to the hut for a cup of tea, watch the sun rise. etc. etc.
The weekend is one for dubiously great plans set in stupendous surroundings accompanied by glorious weather, washed down with some tea and biscuits.
(P.S. You can sort out all the routes you want to do, in advance, by attending the Curry meet in May)
