Amazing! felt easier to lead than it did to second a couple of weeks ago! lots of ice and well frozen turf still despite it being lean everywhere else. if only the second pitch was twice as long. coming down easy gully was easier than usual faced out nearly all the way down

Back to do the modern finish on a short day. Ian first pitch, good lead after lay off. Second pitch very short, 5m, 3 straightforward moves then walk. Fab on the top.

Nice first pitch, although lots of water running down it by the afternoon. Nick led the second, which was steep but short-lived.

I led the second pitch after a bit of a false start.

More icy than we thought on fist pitch. Real treat to get some early season winter climbed done in north wales. Super steep but short top pitch
Glyn - AltLd O/S - 02/Dec/12 with John Orr

Great little route, the top moves are good fun.

Bottom pitch good ice. Did original top pitch traversing out right - in book as 4, 'exposed traverse' good 5 on the day. Very poor spaced placements and gear well spaced -needs commitment from second as well as lead. Good job from Su to get it clean. Took belay just beyond crux. Final section suggested going to end of ledge - guarded by a half metre slab loosely propped against the face on the ledge -would require hooking over it. Did a stiff but short crack line instead. Rained nearly all day, miserable walk out. Want to come back for the new top pitch as it looks ace.
