/ Snowdonia scrambles for confident novice
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.
