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

Set off from Pen-y-Pass at around 0600 and followed the Pyg track before heading off up to Crib Goch. Traversed along going over the whole ridge inc towers before summiting Crib Y Ddysgl and continuing up to Snowdon. Returned to Pen-Y-Pass via the Pyg track finishing at 1200. Crib Goch was fine but the wind picked up on CYD and vis dropped. Some sleet. Enough rime ice to make things interesting without crampons. With Rob Moore.

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...
Ramblin dave - Solo - 26/Jan/13

Intended to do Snowdon Horseshoe, but had difficulties finding the route of the top section of the Watkin path, so reascended and went down Miners Track. Snow conditions on the ridge not bad considering the thaw was underway, but very soft snow and fragile ice on the initial climb to Crib Goch summit made this the hardest part of the route.

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
