/ Ridge from Trinity Face, Snowdon
It runs to the upper level bit starts near the small upper lake. Any idea's?
I think you must mean the east ridge of Snowdon, which is part of the Snowdon Horseshoe. You just zig-zag down steep scree on the south side of that on the way to Lliwedd.
Higher up would certainly be the East ridge.. pretty shoddy.. loose.. nice looking line poor in practice.. its the fastest line on the Peris horseshoe when going Lliwedd > Snowdon summit, but everytime I've been on it there has been much shouting and warnings as we cause rocks to slide and fall on each other..
Its said to be grade 1 but its really just steep broken ground..
The East Ridge is skanky in descent.
Oh, I'd forgotten about Y Gribin. Surely quite a long way down and left of Trinity face? I remember that if you take the best line on Y Gribin, it's a good scramble on very high quality rock i.e. much better than mere 'steep broken ground'. But my memory could be playing tricks ... It was a long time ago :)
No, I've stopped doing mountain books now ... I went up PYG track again last summer, and one I thing I really noticed was how Snowdon had grown :-)
I don't follow you. That's just what I was saying. I remember using Steve Ashton's scrambling book.
