Strike Area, Upper Tier, Gogarth

I’ve recently been climbing on the Upper Tier of Gogarth with Owain and Mick. We headed for the Strike Area, which lies on the right-hand side of the Upper Tier. The route of Dirtigo mostly climbs a corner to give reasonably good climbing for that grade. Take it and be gone.

The Upper Tier was the first part of the day, and with a lesson learned after being in the shade, we decided to climb at Holyhead Mountain for the second part of the day. This was an interesting contrast, with the beginning of winter being felt on the Upper Tier and the end of summer being felt at Holyhead Mountain.
