/ Snowdonia Routes.
Looking at making the most of the improving conditions in Snowdonia; looking for some suggestions for routes in the II/III range: my partner is of very limited winter experience so really no more than II/III.
I'm assuming gullies are out due to the big dump of snow, so that leaves easy Ice or Ridges. Just looking for something friendly that can make up a decent day.
What are the road conditions like?
Thanks for any advice.
Bristly/crib goch could be an option, supposed to be windy mind.
Road through Ogwen was ok this morning, some slight drifting onto the road but mostly ok. Winds look set to ease over next couple of days but you'll probably be doing some wading to get to any routes unless they start close to the road!
Incidentally, from the drive into work today the east face of Tryfan and east face of Bristly ridge look a lot more snowy and rhimed up than the western sides. So if you opted for Bristly Ridge or North Ridge of Tryfan you should get less "full on" conditions sticking more to the western side where possible (should be a bit more out of the current easterly wind as well - though watch for pockets of slab buildup in the lee of the wind).
That could work quite nicely.
