Full Welsh

As we get closer to Friday's climb up Snowdon presumably the weather forecast should get more accurate. This morning on breakfast telly the prediction is for favourable weather: the Met Office says there is a chance of rain for a time on Friday, but it should otherwise be a dry if rather cloudy day. Winds will become more westerly, so it should feel a little warmer than previous days which is surely encouraging.

So what preparation should you do? Well, obviously check you've got the required kit and you've done the required paperwork (see this link) and for my part I propose to do a short walk tomorrow with fresh dubbin on my boots, enjoy a good meal Thursday evening, have an early night, and then wolf down a "full Welsh" (preferably including both laver bread and black pudding) in the morning but at least 2 hours before the climb.

I look forward to seeing the advance guard in Llanberis tomorrow evening and then the rest of the 100-strong team on Friday plus over 60 supporters cheering us on at our "Basecamp Bash" in the Electric Mountain Centre. Hafal Ymlaen!
