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)

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.

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.

Approached from the pass. Wonderful climbing, Cate led the ice pitches. Descended Pyg Track.

Pitched from the ice pitch to near the top then moved together to the summit. Great route, great conditions!

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.

My first time in the Welsh hills. Perfect conditions, clear skies and cold, solid snow and a nice ice section near the top.

small section of water ice that john lead and i seconded

robhorton 10/Jan/10 AltLd

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.

Mattyk 09/Jan/10 Lead O/S

Didn't bother placing any gear.

Brian Wilderspin 08/Jan/10 Solo

Good. 50 feet of steep ice near the top.

with Tony Clifford
Ewan Russell 07/Jan/10 Solo O/S

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.

My first winter climb. Another guy lead it but dropped a glove at the top, so he left us to find the zigzags and descend to Pen y Pass while he went back down for it. I had crampons but Ian didn't and a slip meant we nearly ended up down the mines.

Pure madness - went up with crampons & no ice axe, slipped but managed to stop myself. Bought an ice axe the next week! Crazy days of a poor student.
