As promised brought Paul up. This time did it properly - gap can be climbed over despite how it looks initially! Definitely a worthwhile continuation to Tryfan

Up the gully. I lead the way.
jpksalmon - Solo O/S - 21/Jul/11 with Nicole, Paul

Continuation from tryfan. Did the walls as aposed to the gully
Paul1 - Solo - 21/Jul/11 with Jon, Nicole

brilliant ridge scramble, better than crib goch? possibly. stayed as true to the crest of the ridge as possible, more like a grade 3 scrable. but all the dificulties can be easilly avoided if you wish.
Webster - 13/Jul/11

Approached from the left up a likely looking line, better than Sinister Gully. Avoided the big step down the large pinnacle by traversing leftwards around the base

Was pretty wet and windy. Sinister gully was good fun even with water pouring down it.

Made sure to avoid any grade 2 sections, Sinister Gully sure did look sinister but it wasn't too bad just a bit loose. Fun, will be taking Paul up this one!
col3 - Solo O/S - 24/Apr/11 with Jim, Dad

Grade one route, sinister gully is scary until you're in it. Last moves are high but easy

Did Main Gully, descended the scree to the left and then ascended Sinister Gully. Main Gully the one to the right, looking in, was the more difficult and offered the most fun
Mayaculpa - 25/Aug/10

Done via sinister gully. Top move a bit precarious for a scramble.
