Thursday 25th May 1933

More about Wales, from Bradleys “In Praise of Wales” – “Tryfan is a gigantic crag of rock, slanting upwards in layers and notching the skyline with their rugged ends…awesome…the chaotic litter of rock and crag that piled itself high to heaven on every side”.

He describes very clearly the miners path we took on the Snowdon ascent, by Lake Llydaw and Glaslyn. Glaslyn is 2000 feet high, so the scarp I tried to climb was about 1500.

H.F. walk arranged for tonight. Only three of us turned up, so we eventually dispersed; I went to Westgate.
