Rain all the way up into the Cwm, no snow on Cneifon Arete so went and found the gully in nil vis. Wet snow but an ok base, small ice pitch halfway up. Excellent overall after nearly not going up.

Joss - 09/Feb/13 with Daz Haycock
Just over an hours walk up to the bottom. A bit cloudy but not too windy. Solo'd the first half up to the short ice pitch on good snow and ice. Roped up for the middle bit because the 10ft ice fall was steep. Solo'd the last bit. Good fun with lots of interest; snow, ice and mixed climbing.

Ice was a bit thin and hollow in places, but good fun
Andy_B39 - Solo O/S - 17/Dec/11 with Ben Rigby
A very thin line, but some great ice in the steps. Certainly harder than II in the conditions, and if you went direct.
