Done in 3 pitches. H led to Cave. I led crux pitch and Alex to just below the top. Brilliant route and my hardest winter lead to date. the move out of the small cave belay was quite tricky, it was quite lean but some really good turf all the way up the route. Great fun!

5am start, we were at the bottom by 8:30. Started on this, Stephen took the first pitch out of the spider, quite steep. I then led the short crux icefall and stephen carried it to the top. Great route, awesome climbing and good belays.

Snow higher up was powdery and the turf wasn't quite frozen. Good route and excellent day all the same!
Mike Nolan - AltLd O/S - 02/Dec/12
Guide said it was 2/3 but felt more like a hard 3. Powdery most the way up, turf wasn't very frozen and no proper ice, meant there was a few hard moves well above any gear, still had great fun though
steve-grigg - AltLd O/S - 30/Nov/12 with David Webster
slightly dodgy conditions from the 1st proper pitch upwards with unconsolidated snow ontop of non frozen turf, but still good fun. 1 move of tecnical grade 4 above the cave belay and sustained grade 3 climbing on the first true pitch (3rd pitch listed in guide)

Arrived at base of Clogwyn y Garnedd at 07:50hrs in superb weather conditions. There was one other soloist on the entire face (he did R-H Trinity then L-H Trinity). My climbing partner was feeling weary from the previous day’s exertions so he opted to stay ‘below’ and sunbathe. An exit ‘notch’ in the large cornice was clearly visible. Snow/ice conditions in the gully were good but the ice on the r-h side of the chockstone had been stripped by the recent hoardes (several ascents the previous day). This called for a bit of jiggery-pokery to enable a sequence of bridging moves. The spring sunshine was beginning to have an effect on the cornice, necessitating an exciting rising traverse to the exit notch. Topped out at 08:59. This completes my trio of Trinity solos, first started in 1977.

Lead by Sam. Strayed off-route to avoid cornice at top of climb. No wind but poor vis. Great climb and even found an ice wall to play with on the way down! Suspect vote reflects off-route...
