Very Sugary and soft not in the best conditionhamishjfk - Solo O/S - 04/Apr/13

Ace, bomber neve all the way. I led pitch 1 and 3, we then moved together above that. In hindsight the whole route was more than soloable but we were expecting it to be a little trickier than usual due to the thaw over the weekend.

Late start so headed for the Trinity Face. Slush turned to surprisingly firm snow on the plod up to the Spider. Paul, Ken and Ben went up Central, which was not too bad. I opted for LH and it proved to be hard work and not much fun as every so often I sunk through to the hips. Still, good to get out in the snow for the first time this season.

Much better conditions than the previous day (snow rather than rain and a bit icy from the overnight freeze and generally lower temperature). Went up with Dave Love and a chap we met called Tim from Duchy College. No summit crowds to welcome us to the top.

Second trinity route in the bag. Approached via Crib Goch traverse then down the Snow softening but still good. Topped out right onto the summit but v poor visibilibility. A bit easy for a II. I/II as per guide is fairer.

Climbed in superb alpine-like conditions. The upper snowfield was a little soft and spooky but low down was in great nick. Topped out to a round of applause from walkers :-)

Went to do Snake Bite but heavy powder and poor weather meant a change of plan... Tried another variant start before the gully proper, a steep turf/ice gully, 10m; fun.

Climbed in glorious sunshine. Some loose powder over névé made it feel a little insecure as a solo.

With exception of a few steep turfy bits near the top found slightly easier than central.

Went to do right hand today, wasn't in condition though, very loose and lots of spin drift. Left hand isn't as dependant on the conditions so did that instead.
