Cneifion Arete*** D
[Cneifion Arete, 2 kb]140m.

Rockfax Description
A fantastic route with the main difficulty confined to the first pitch. Above this it becomes more of an open scramble up an alpine-like ridge.
1) 20m. Start just right of the toe of the rib and climb the polished wall up and slightly left, to a ledge at the end of the initial steep wall.
2), 3), 4) and 5) 100m. It is now possible to move up the left side of the rib, before gaining the arete proper higher up. Follow this to near the top where slabs and grooves on the left lead to the top. There are many options available for belaying and you can split the pitches to suit. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
D/SG3. A steep, juggy pitch of moderate climbing and an awkward chimney lead to a superb grade three ridge scramble. Alpine in character, this route could only be improved if it was longer.

Did this after Idwal Staircase. Brilliant scramble in a great situation as the sun set. Rather a shame to see a classic scramble covered in chalk though....I mean, is chalk really needed when the jugs are so big you can sit on them? Just spoilt a classic scramble a bit in my eyes...

My first grade 3 scramble and, despite being out of my comfort zone at times, I absolutely loved it. Sean led it all really well, but couldn't squeeze his paunch up the chimney! Weather was grim on the walk in, but improved during the climb and the sun was out by the time we reached the top. I loved the last pitch- almost a whole 50m of absorbing scrambling with some pretty gnarly exposure. Brilliant- think I've got the bug!

I led the first 40m as one pitch then we moved together for the rest, Nikki leading the first moving together section and I finished it off. My first big mountain route, and on a rather round-about way back to the campsite, we collected a family of five who were lost as it was getting dark and walked them down.
