Really like this route as its got some nice technical problems here and there, efficient rope work and completed in good time. Colin was over on Bastow buttress with Olly {8 years} and we were able to chat at intervals during the climb.

Always quick on my own, nailed in 25 minutes, very quiet on mountain! Headed off to Glyder fach cliff face to don Hawks nest buttress.

Only the second time that I have climbed this route, really like it, great rock features and some good technical sections. My friend Claire's 1st time on route and in new rock shoes, climbed well and found it challenging for a Diff! I put it at a hard Diff or an easy V Diff myself.

Top grade scramble!, and hard for the grade which was a pleasant surprise, some tricky little technical pitches and intentionally went off route onto some more challenging ground here and there. Me and Col actually roped up for the 1st 2 pitches as we are trying to get up to speed on rope work but then soled the rest of the route. On the descent we had to abseil down a tricky impasse so more good practice before soloing stepped crack on Tryfan bach to finish a grand day out.

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!

With Martin, sunny & warm - went wrong way at top pitch (right instead of left)

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! :)

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!
