Starts 30m beyond Green Gully on Heather Terrace. Tricky route finding. Climb a rocky runnel to an ugly step. Move right and climb a short rib to regain the runnel. Don't carry on up; follow a ramp left across the face to a 10m wall. Either climb this or side step it delicately to the left. Walk uphill and climb several small walls on their left. When the Terrace Wall is reached move left along its base and climb rock steps and a chimney to reach North Gully. Either climb the gully to the North Ridge or just take a direct line to the right to reach it.

MIA assessment. Hard to define the line, pretty poor.

Led students Sophie and Chris to the summit via this route (used Little Tryfan as a warm up and to gain height). Some good scrambling in sections and much better weather than we were expecting.

Ashton's topo is inconsistent with his description (topo taking a higher line left out of the runnel than the described route) so I went left from the runnel too late, resulting in more difficulty than I was expecting (since found to be left-hand quarter gully rib - described as around Diff in Ogwen guidebook!) until got back onto route at his 'level area beneath a wide, low wall'.
