Well what a weekend,travelled down friday evening got up 3am saturday morning to go and conquer. THE CLIMB First hour and a half spent going the wrong way UPHILL So back down to the bottom and try again After a very long hard slog we made it to the bridge under the railway and had a break. The next bit was horrendous and I was at the verge of turning back but thanks to Chris carried on and up into the mini snow storm. At the top helmets where donned and picture taken to show we had done it. THE DESCENT First mile or so done with no feeling in fingers to the top of the rangers trail and the true descen began. I found a lot of it unrideable,big rocks with wheel jamming drops and loose boulders. Being at the back I could see the carnage as it happend,riders over the bars (at least three) and numerous other stacks. Once at the bottom nice fast single track to the Llanberis turning and up the hill to telegraph valley (once again) and the final mega fast run down to the bottom and the digs. Quick change and down to Petes eats for 10.30 for a full breakfast and brew
Part way up

Rest of saturday spent sleeping,eating,walking and being entertained by our two young guests setting there farts alight

Thanks for a great trip everyone
