fantastic day out - not quite enough snow/ice for crampons to be needed all the way, took them off towards the top of the first arÍte and replaced afterwards. had axes, but only used one axe for one short section.

Set off at 12.30 back 21:00, supremely unfit. Rock basically dry but hail and the odd rumble of thunder added interest.

A half winter traverse. Snow patches on Crib Goch, more wintery on Crib Y Ddysgl, put crampons on for that section.

Aiming for the horseshoe, but couldn't find the line of the Watkin Path and had to back up and go down the PyG...

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
