Just a dusting of powder and a little bit of ice in the gullies... more ice on the descent in fact.

Walked up from Ogwen cottage. Got a bit lost finding the cwm below Tryfan, and ended up going up to the south summit, and having to traverse around, in deep now! Not sure we found the right way up the ridge at the start - kept right of the wall, and had two pitches of powder-snow covered grooves, where it was hard to find a hold, although protection could be found! Easier ground above, and then found a large drop - down-climbed, and traversed around, then up, through deep, tiring, unconsolidated snow! Gained ridge in a white-out, and followed GPS (compass was playing up!) to miner's track (though the path is not quite the same as on the OS 1:25,000! Descended on the east side of Tryfan, and had a long walk back to the car at Ogwen Cottage! Felt very hard for the grade in these conditions!

Avoided some of the last parts as so not to be late for work, not in very good condition anyway. Had mini epic on variant start, good times.

Pitched the initial gully then moved together for most of the rest of the route. Lots of soft and fluffy powder but an amazing day, no wind and barely a cloud!
