4:30 am start from Pen y Pass.. Lots of hail dumped over night, not my favourite conditions!!! We turned back after sunrise just below the ridge, then had breakfast at the Siabod cafe .. Decided to do Moel Yr Hydd, Moelwyn Mawr and moelwyn Bach.. Stunning day..

Consolation prize as all the Trinity Face routes were buried in graupel and windslab. This route was covered in graupel and windslab too. Very nasty, especially carrying a bag full of assorted winter climbing junk.

A positively Alpine-esque day! Starting out at first hint of dawn, the sun broke over the horizon at Bwlch Moch. Ideal conditions for the polariser lenses to capture the contrasts of snow/blue sky/cloud. Thanks to the hundreds who trampled nicely compact paths on Sat/Sun for me to make easy progress and 'ski' back down the PYG (especially up top by the zig zags!) No metal-work 'necessary' but advisable - ice axe only saw 5 minutes use on the steeper upper part of the East Ridge of Crib Goch Start: 7am Pen y Pass Summit: 12:30-13:30 (lots of photos takes time!) Descent: Pyg Track, back for 14:30
