Very tricky to find the start - it seems to be closer to Nor-Nor-Buttress than to Bastow Buttress, but not clear at all. The slab on pitch 5 does indeed have a very exposed right-hand edge and is scarcely protectable. A good experience, easy on second but with some unexpectedly hair-raising moments for the leader. I am supposed to be able to lead Diff but I was very glad indeed that I wasn't leading this one!

Our first foray onto the east face, took us by surprise! We must have strayed onto the alternative sections of the route given in the Ogwen climbers club guide as we thought it much more than a Diff. Thoroughly enjoyable day and ended up with the summit to ourselves on a spectacular day! :)

Guided by Huw, on one of Rob Johnson's courses. Seconded with an old boy who proved flaky. Fine route with good grunty moves.

Definitely came off route but good fun and great feeling to finally top out in the fading sun.

Wasn't a diff, thats for sure.... guess i wondered a bit off route! we did a good 150ft of the gully below in boots with full packs, plus scrambled to the summit after. all in all an excellent day!
