Pretty lean but lots of fat ice on the icy step, not sure if it was harder than normal or just felt exciting as it was my first time on proper water ice? Anyway, really good fun! (came up the streambed to Cwm Glas)

Good ice and steep in parts. A rope was useful on the ice pitch. The following day a friend of ours fell down this and broke his ankle after being hit by a chunk of ice while soloing.
Joss - Lead - 23/Feb/13 with Tony Martin, Rod Lloyd Jones
fairly good nick a bit of softer snow before the ice bulge. moved together put one ice screw in then realised the rest was in kates bag cue down climb and immense faffing, not a whole lot of gear in present condition. but the snow above the ice patch was lovely and firm.

Soft snow and brittle ice meant it was quite scary at one point. Enjoyable all the same, linked with ascent of Trinity Right Hand and then descended Miners Track after topping out on Snowdon at 5 in the dark!
Mike Nolan - AltLd O/S - 02/Dec/12
Was planning on doing Sinister Gully but the crux pitch was too lean, traversed over to Parsley LH and then descended RH. Didn't leave the car until after 2pm and due to warm temps the snow was a bit soft in places.

Rain overnight, warm in the morning and a late start from the B&B but still went for a wander from the CC hut in the hope of finding some snow. Hardly anything until above Cyrn Las, where there was still lots of snow left. Unfortunately it was soft and wet, which made for heavy going. The ice in PF LH was a bit soggy but ok. Holly was really up for it and happy to try soloing, first with one axe and then with two (we only had two between us so I had to climb using her placements for handholds, which worked ok). Holly got up it fine with a bit of encouragement. Traversed into RH and bumslid down it, back at the hut just as it got dart shortly after 6 (set off around midday). Holly's first ice lead/solo and third winter route after Cneifion Stream and Hidden Gully the previous day. Our first two days of climbing when we've been together.

Started the climb after dawn. Excellent fun, finished over some grade III stuff to the left, topping out just left from the summit.

Excellent neve all the way up to the icy section, which was unfortunately quite short but provided a bit of II/III fun, with some large dinner plates forming. Descended the RH version. 1hr 50mins hut to top, 1hr 15mins for the descent - the path past Cyrn Las was a bit tricky due to being a bit iced up.

Not much snow but the top part was in good condition. Missed out the ice part and scrambled up rocks due to very hard ice and rubbish crampons

Soled up to the ice bulge. I ran out 2 60m pitches before giving Paul the glory top out pitch as I was buried in a bucket seat. Cracking conditions great weather. Shame my partners didn't fancy finishing down the N Ridge of Crib Goch.

Fantastic hard neve with blue skies and sunshine at the top. Couldn't be more perfect. The small ice move is easy.

Decided to get the rope out for the last bit given the possibly suspect ice (although it wasn't actually too bad), fall potential and dire weather.

Good. 50 feet of steep ice near the top.
Brian Wilderspin - Solo - 08/Jan/10 with Tony Clifford
Conditions nearly good. However I imagine if leading would have been a touch scary as the crux was probably more III and would have been interesting to try and find gear. Ski'd down the tourist path afterwards which was like a long blue run, if a bit bare in parts and the end.
