1000m. A stunning ridge walk right to the summit of snowdon from the south west. feels like your in the alps on a sunny winters day. crampons and axe highly recomended, but no technical climbing required. (small obstacles can be found if you are that way inclined)

Is this the same as the south ridge?

Nice steady conditions. Not a soul in sight.

Lots of deep snow above 500m. The ridge was beautifully icy and narrow with no one else for much of the day . Felt quite Alpine

Not really a grade 1, but a good wintery ridge nonetheless. 40mph winds made the ridge 'exciting'.

Great way to start 2016 made more fun with the snow

Good covering of fresh soft snow. Knee deep drifts, summit frozen. 70mph wind gusts, had to crawl getting peppered with spin drift several times. Not really grade 1.

Ascent and descent, only people up there all day, nicely snowed up and some neve towards the end for the final little section up to the summit.

Well seems my Boxing Day walk had a graded bit!

My first Winter route! Easy, but tiring and some hairy conditions on the ridge before we put our crampons on. Temperature on top with wind gusts was unnerving.
