/ Best long alpine(ish) style ridges/climbs in Wales?
Anyone got any suggestions on the best long climbs (grade II/III) or scrambles? Quality preferred over difficulty as it's my first time climbing in North Wales and haven't swung my axes in a while.
Will be based near Capel Curig.
The Clogwyn Y Pearson arete is a brilliant grade III scramble. Not done it in winter conditions, but I expect it would be quite spicy.
It's significantly longer and more sustained than the Cneifion, so don't underestimate it.
Even better if you approach it via Crib Goch (perhaps via North Ridge of CG) and dip down to it at Bwlch Coch.
Thanks for the suggestions folks.
Heading for Bryn Gwynant this afternoon, looks like it's going to be a pretty good weekend up on them thar hills.
