Went up a gully just right of the ridge. It was full of much loose rock and mud possibly from a recent collapse. A muddy slot at the top was avoided using a dirty and difficult chimney to the right.

No idea if we took 'the' line at the beginning. But felt pretty hard for a grade 1 and we came across loads of polish and crampon scratches half way up, getting easier at this point too. Was quite misty!
Jack Whiteley - 26/May/14 with Sarah

Can't work out what line we took as first part wasn't that polished and felt a bit harder than a grade 1 to me, passed an abseil rig?

Still unclear about which gully is the 'correct' route. Ashton describes an ascent via sinister gully after crossing a walk, but the accepted route appears to be via a gully further to the right. This is very steep for a grade one and extremely loose a quite dangerous if you stray into three gully bed higher up to avoid the exposure. Higher up it eases considerably and becomes more of a classic ridge scramble reminiscent of Aonach Eagach with atmosphere to match, especially in the awesome great pinnacle gap.

climbed right gully, down the scree and back up left gully. Right is a bit tougher but more atmospheric.

bit bemused how to log this, well snowed up and rocks a bit icy, but ground wasnt frozen and snow unconsolidated, not in summer condition but not full winter either, an exciting scramble in snow rather than with axes and crampons

Amazing Day, Started off at the car park not far from tryfan east face. Before heading along heather terrace. Then onto bristly ridge, first taking on little gully as the wweather was too bad to think about sinister gully. Then negotiating our way over the great pinacles. Then onto the plateaud summit. We just managed to see the cantilever stone but the wind was so strong attempting it would of been really daft. Then a bit of map reading to find our way off as visibility was really bad. And down scree back to heather terrace.

My first time on bristly ridge. It was raining cats and dogs so the rock was really greasy. In a thick mist we could barely see our own noses. Stood atop of the rock spires was awe inspiring. being stood atop a couple of square foot of rock, looking down into the mist, who knew how far below the floor was?
