I have a Hilleberg Jannu, 2.7kg spacious 2 man tent, you could fit 3 as its a bit bigger then standard 2 man jobbies. It has withstood 115mph winds on the top of the nantlle ridge, when 2 Haglofs tents were damaged badly, and a crux bomb got a bit trashed too. The Jannu is only a 3 pole tent too, so it makes me wonder just what sort of super storm a 4 pole Hilleberg tent could withstand! They really are the best you can get, but they arent cheap. Ease of putting them us is bliss too, after 4 people streuggled to get soem crux tents up the other week in some really windy weather, I think ease of putting up should be a majour consideration too if you want to use it in harsh conditions.
Hey folks. I should be able to come along to this one. I am working from 10:30 till 2:30 on the saturday though, so depending on hiow far away you camp on friday from a road I might not be able to make that night. Ill find you all on saturday though wherever you may be. If your going to be in the Ogwen area, then I would suggest doing the north ridge of Tryfan and then Bristly ridge on the friday of you get there early, both awesome easy scrambles. That way you could camp near the road too Well not too near, but perhaps Llyn Bochlwyd, or if its nice weather, Llyn Caseg Fraith right on the open tops. If I left at 8 in the morning from either of them I could get to work on time no probs. I also need to get soem experience of leading on harder scrambles, so if anyone fancies doign a bit of that, some grade 3's on the saturday or sunday let me know, 2-3 is max number though realistically. I got all the kit you might need.
E-mail me if your interested as I quite rarely check OM these days, email@example.com
Ampitheatre butress is a good one. Its got some scrambly sections which you can short rope or move together on, worth protecting one way or another and then a few good easy pitches too. If your up for more of a challenge and want to finish right on a peak have a look at some of the routes up LLiwedd, Avelanche red wall and the bit above it is great, easy climbing but a long one. I think its about 12 pitches, some of whcih can be scrambled. This brings you out right on top of Lliwedd and chances are you wont run into anyone on the crags. Its a great route. Tryfan has loads as mentioned by others. Glyder fach has some good scrambles up it, one I did was the Dolman something or another, passes a bit dolman stone on the way up. Great route, definately take protection though. Hope this helps
