Another great day, the hardest part was wading through deep powder to get to the start! A lot more snow and less ice than last year.

Serious snow on the wrong route to the start ! Great fun with a good team outing.

Nice, straightforward ridge with continuous interest and some great positions. Snow was deep and soggy, but improved with height - we even found a little frozen turf near the top. Carneddau seems to have held on to ice/snow a little better than the Glyders, so although it felt seriously alpine, nothing else up there is in yet - but might be soon, I reckon. Big cornices on the northerly ridges...

Excellent route. Ridges are the better place to be at the moment. Lots of snow around but not consolidated.

Brilliant day out. Loads of rime, bit of ice, frozen turf. Best low grade winter route south of Scotland?

Fantastic day out. Less windy on the ridge than expected, so although we'd brought a rope it stayed in the sack. Great fun seeking out or avoiding difficulties as required. The winds hit as we topped out, headed round the skyline towards Carnedd Llewellyn but descended from the col as we'd had enough being blown over.

top day out, really interesting route, wish it were longer. Solo't but took rope and gear for a walk as K is still finding his feet. Picked out some awkward bits and avoided the slab! Tad breezy on top and cloudy so bearings off but cloud lifted. Great views, really really good day trip

Lots of soft snow made the going slow. Roped up and moved together for most of the route. Turf frozen where exposed or wet, but needs a freeze thaw to consolidate the snow. But then it will be epic!

Not too much ice but axe was nessacery, crampons not needed.

chris nutman ?/Jan/15 Solo O/S

Could've perhaps needed crampons for some sections but overall probably not. Take an ice axe. Was pretty cool!

a couple of inches snow from the access ledge upwards, deep at the top but no need for spikes or axe

BStar 11/Jan/14 Solo

A fair covering in rime and normal ice, more snow the further up the ridge, a couple of tricky steps in the ice. Fun day out!

Deep unconsolidated snow deposited by strong SE wind. Eventually managed to gain ridge by higher traverse. Isolated feel and a fine adventure.

A summer 3* classic, Crib Lem spur also makes for a splendid winter ascent. We were the first to break off the Cwm Llafar highway to make tracks up this highly satisfying route today Crampons were put on shortly after gaining the crest of the ridge and back off around 200m below Carnedd Dafydd.

Smashing ridge, continually interesting and dramatic. Chose a rather odd approach from the right up steep slabs and grass.
