3 man team with Will and Jordan. Lead first pitch, good fun with a nice belay point over the gully. Long walk in but worth it, followed by my first ascent of Snowdon.

Climbed the right hand edge of Parsons Nose, which becomes quite steep and exposed. Very icy at the base of the climb and snow higher up.

Big boots. Dave also came along. The scramble afterwards seemed harder and Crib Goch was empty (probably because of the low cloud and high wind).

moved together, 4 on a rope
Little AndyH - AltLd O/S - 14/Jun/09

Issy led and rest of us moved together. climbing in big boots for Alps training. Strung between 2 scrambles and finished up Crib y Ddysgl and returned to Llanberis via Pt 610 Clogwyn Llwyd. Clogwyn y person seemed harder than the diff in big boots.

moved together in big boots. Very easy (for the grade!) but don't expect to find much worthwhile gear before it turns into a scramble!
