I made a bit of a mess of Pitch 2, going too high to get on to the rib (and having to back down a bit), and then traversing too high to get to the next belay (making that the definite crux pitch). Great climbing, though! Just a pity the clouds came down when we were near the top, and we missed out on the fabled glorious view from the final arete.cameron_hall - Lead O/S - 26/Jul/14 with Tom Wolfe
First multi-pitch. Slipped once on the fourth pitch because it was raining. Solid type 2 fun. Would do again.

Got to the foot of the route to find I'd left my climbing shoes in the car! The route is soft for VS so managed to climb it ok in approach shoes. Did as 4 long pitches, I led 2nd and 4th; went too high on the traverse on pitch 2 and had to backtrack. Dry all the way up.

Did it in 4 pitches to avoid the queue on Great Bow Combination, well worth doing, you can pick almost any line up the slab at a similar grade.
Andrew Lodge - AltLd O/S - 21/Jun/14 with Dave
An 'adventure day' - rode (and pushed!) bikes up the Llanberis Path (before 9.00 a.m.) and pedalled round to the crag. Did a slow but steady ascent of Great Slab and then a much faster descent back to Llanberis- brilliant! The route does not seem to be getting much traffic, and in places is much more grassy than it used to be. I thought the upper pitches were quite serious due to spaced protection.
zukator - Lead rpt - 19/Jun/14
With Rob. I led pitch 1 3 5 and 7 as we added our own pitch by going off route! Rob ended up with pitch 3 (our pitch 4) in the wet corner so climbed the slab to avoid the wet - a very bold lead -certainly not VS. Had whole of Cloggy to ourselves during a long and memorable day. Great first climb at Cloggy even had evening sunshine as we topped out.

Followed a rope of 3 one of whom was inexperienced enough to be shouting 'pull slack', they sailed up ok so was a bit of a surprise to be kacking myself on the first pitch which was polished and sparse - great adventure after the initial traverse though.
Louis Hume - Lead - 21/Jul/13 with Hair Bear
Mike led pitch 1, I took the lead on pitch 2 and got us horribly off route, felt more HVS than VS on the traverse (way too high up, way too little gear) across to the second belay. Still, a brilliant route and a definite learning experience for me.

Good old school VS climbing, route finding tricky on pitch 2 and generally poorish gear throughout. Shout out to the dirty, scabby juan kerr who decided to shit on the 1st belay, rather than the cave below, good one dickhead!

I led P2 and P4 (did the last 3 pitches in 2). Accidentally did the HVS traverse across the slab on P2! In total we got lost 5 times on Saturday: Steve on P1, me on P2, Steve on P3, on the descent, and trying to find the main path again in the fog! Got back to Llanberis at about 11.30pm!

I led p2,3 and 5. Pitches 1 and 3 were nice. Route finding awkward and lots of vegetation/ loose rock.
Not sure why Cloggy has a "wilderness" reputation. Good exposure but hordes of people on the Snowdon path and three steam trains spoil the aspect.
Not worth 3 stars.

TT First climb on Cloggy. Initial traverse on pitch 1 felt hard from cold, but the groove was brilliant. Top 3 pitches ease down a lot, but were spiced up by the midges. Overall, a great experience. Celebrated by walking to top of Snowden.
