I have a non climbing friend who is confident in exposed mountainous terrain due to year of off piste skiing but doesn't do much on rock. She enjoyed the Snowdon Horseshoe and Tryfan North Ridge/Bristly Ridge when we did it so am looking for any other recommendations. She doesn't want to do anything where she needs a rope but doesn't mind me bringing one just in case. So exposed is ok, a tricky step possibly ok but not exposed tricky steps.
In reply to dsh: Crib Lem is good - easy but a great line in a great setting

Crib Lem (grade 1) - more ridge loveliness.

Little and North Gullies (grade 1) - easy intro to gullies.

Llechog ridge/Llechog West Rib (grade 1/2) - harder ridge/buttress but grade 2 easily avoided.

Idwal Staircase and Continuation (grade 2) - wet runnel up to big face but can bale out on path right at half height.

3rd for Crib Lem - bit of a walk in mind

Nothing difficult but doing a quick loop from Ogwen past Llugwy then up Pen yr Helgi Du is always nice

Llechog Ridge (g2). Pick and mix your own line, no real exposure.

Nor Nor Groove (g1/2). Interesting route on Tryfan East Face.

North West Face of Glyder Fawr (g2). Pretty long but low in the grade. Needs a good day so as to keep to the easiest line and the situation is good, but not too exposed really.

Nantlle Ridge (g1) is worth doing too. Not a continuous scramble as such, just ridge walking with a few extra scrambly sections thrown in.
