350m, 8 pitches. Good easy introduction to winter climbing. Usually in condition before anything else. The crux on the second or third pitch depending where you belay is short but fun.

Some ice ok on the sides but still lots of water running, down climbed from half way up the icy sections

Babika 06/Feb AltLd

Still lots of water running underneath the main middle sections - thicker ice on the side. Loose snow.

JulianB 06/Feb AltLd

Some sections soft or thin but plenty of solid ice too. Fantastically atmospheric climb on a beautiful day.

Go all the way back to the car, no axe, back to the stream, no axe. Have a little think, retrace my steps exactly and found the axe below where the path crosses the stream. Race back up the hill, gear up and solo first pitch to join others. Andy belays me and Dave on the next 2 pitches and solo finish.

First winter outing and a grand way to knock the rust off - especially by tackling some of the falls by harder options; took one short section of overhanging ice on p3 ! Pretty quite, only two otehr groups on with us. Condition not bad though a few holes here & there (apparently it was rammed on saturday)and running water behind. took opportunity to practice a few skills like abalakov threads for belays etc. Completed to top - its rude not too :-)

First winter route of the season and it's still only November! Went up into Idwal with the vague hope of finding some ice and were very happy to find the Stream in decent nick. The ice was even thick enough for screws in places - I placed one on P1 for a laugh. Did P1 and P2, then it was over to Su for her first winter lead on P3 using a screw that Paul had left on a steep section - she coped admirably. Carried on unroped up the never ending easy section. Left Ogwen Cottage at 10.20am after some trouble getting the car out of the Ynys car park and got back at 4.00. A perfect blue sky and hardly any wind - what a great day! Paul H and John pitched in front of us while Su's friend Paul and his friend Leon soloed ahead.

4 pitches then soloed the rest. Great conditions, great build up of ice, taking 20cm ice screws all day with ease!! A doddle at the grade!

I'm counting this as an onsight of Idwal Stream. My diversion on to the Chandelier while seconding is another matter.

First time ever on Welsh ice - what a great start to the year! Decent conditions, very busy. Soloed with 'Fat' Phil.

Pitched one bit maybe tech grade 3? A steep wall to the side of the main stream itself. No harder than a II really if the line of least resistance is taken.
