Started up the initial icefall (good grade III). The main icefall pitch was too wet and fragile to take direct so we went up the rake under the icicles and exited via steep icefall at the end (grade III), to access what I think was the final pitch of Cascade. A splendid day complete with cloud inversion.

We didn't start until mid afternoon and had to bail before the last pitch due to it going dark ! A really nice route with short sections of tasty ice and easier ground between. Unless Snowdonia routes are undergraded, I would say this is a solid III, certainly as hard (if not harder) than Y gully RH. I found getting a belay after 1st pitch to be a real chore, nothing on the rock.

Solo of first pitch, then alt leads for the rest, then the Grade 4 pillar to finish. A Stellar route!
