Led P1,3,5,7,9 & 10 as one, then it got dark and did 12 in pitch black! Topped out at 9pm!
Dan led P2,4,6,8 and 11 when we decided to put on head torches
Most pitches before Red Wall are a scramble. Climbed in walking boots until Red Wall the put on our climbing shoes!

Mike_Gannon - AltLd O/S - 01/Sep/13 with Scott Robinson
loose in places, climbed off route on 2nd pitch didn't go far enough right, dejected feeling saved by enjoyable climb. 'North Wales classics' (Rockfax) description a bit off on later pitches(9&10) appear to be opposite directions to described. Ran pitch 10 into 11 and rest off 11 and last slab together, long day, took 9:30 , first multipitch

Brilliant day out with the wife. Easyish climbing with poor gear on the easy bits. Pitch 8 & 9 descriptions somewhat 'off' but took a little working out. Looked over the edge of Lliwedd on my belly when i was 16 because i was too scared to stand up and look! First time back in 24 years! Ran in, ran out, 4.10 climbing time.

Lead P1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 + 13. Route finding not too bad thanks to chalked up holds - Is that much chalk really necessary on mountain routes? Did stray off at the start of red wall, but managed to get back on route. Fantastic day out! Topped out at 8:30!

Started snowing as we got to the bottom of the route, but luckily it stopped not long after. Moved together up most of Avalanche, then went off route a little bit on Red Wall / Longlands and ended up pitching some dirty, loose and fairly tricky pitches.

Very nervous about this mountain crag route, but found as the day and climb went on I become more and more confident, even tackling an arete head on! I became better in my technique and noticed my choice of moves becoming less rushed and more thought out and executed.

An epic outing in the rain and buffeting winds and an interesting walk back down to the Llanberis pass in the dark. The quality of the climbing didn't live up to expectations although this may have been at least partly down to the general wetness. Protection was very poor on most pitches and there was LOTS of loose rock. A memorable day for the adventure and the situation (stunning views across the Snowdon lakes) but not really for the climbing unfortunately.

Great day out to do my longest UK multipitch. A few nice pitches with choss inbetween spoilt slightly by a party going past us then proceeding to dislodge lots of rock that narrowly (3 metres) missed us.
Route finding was quite straight forward using the guide as we went. Also the route is well worn.

It was good because it was on such a big crag, but too broken up with easy grassy climbing to be worth 3* or even 2* in my opinion. topping out at the peak of Lliwedd was cool.

Excellent day out. Use the marble streaks on the wall to identify the start of the route. Keep an eye as you approach; when you're at the foot of the face it can be difficult to pick out the start. Oh, and stay away from the fractured red stuff on Red Wall - Climb more to the right.

Stupidly spent an hour climbing XS desperate choss to reach the heather ledge; lobbing mud, stones, flakes, heather, wet sods and swear words off in the process. Route finding went well thereafter, but you could see why it's tricky. Lovely traditional mountain route and needs to be viewed with a mountaineer's hat on. Some loose stuff. If you are on route, it's not vegetated at all. Final polished slab had some bold spice - a sting in the tail. Stunning views. Great Top Out!

Started climbing at around 10am and finished about 5pm. The route is good, but hard to follow, with grass and mud in various bits throughout.
The final longlands pitch (S 4b in newest guide), felt at lot more VS 4b/c taking the direct line up the right hand side of the main slab, perhaps there's a different S 4b line up it!
Topped out to a round of applause from the walkers above watching my everymove, and a stunning cloud inversion to the East.

Enjoyed the climb but don't follow any polish as all the wrong route choices are polished as well as the true routes! A few pairs overtook us but often then climbed the wrong route for the next pitch - requires good route finding and concentrating on the route description.
