A few tricky moves near the top. Definitely at the top end of grade 2 scrambling.

Mid 2 for me all the way. Hardest move is low down and many avoid it. Nice finish and lovely horseshoe with summit Y Garn.

A quick evening stroll before the weather moved in. Summitted then descended Northeast path. 2 hours all told.

Really enjoyable yet unexpected scramble -assumed we'd take a walker's route on the approach but the East Ridge looked too good to ignore. Did all but the final few metres as it looked rock hard -and we didn't have the guidebook with us which says 'climb to the right'!

Moved together and pitched some optional bits on the way up for practice then pitched the crux groove (very straightforward, a grade below Mod whatever you want to call that). Nice route to the summit and not as scary or exposed as some make out. Cold again.

one small section on the lower buttress once on this then difficulties can be avoided. The second buttress on castell y geifr has a great section moving left on to the ridge and well worth it a few loose blocks needing caution not to bring it down on the rest of the party near the top. did moving together. A great half day. Grade at the top of 2 if not easy 3

Grade II scramble - almost a vdiff due to the wetness and slimy rock.

Tough for a grade 2, but then again maybe it was the fairly direct line that we took up the buttress towards the top. We both really enjoyed it and had it to ourselves. Saw a bit of sunshine too!

First half little more than a walk; second half a bit more entertaining! Short but sharp for the grade.

Wet ascent, some rain. Took the final buttress on direct rather than skirting the edge. Gave a good 12m pitch.

Unaware that 90 per cent of Ashton's description relates to the last 10 per cent of the route, I misinterpreted his 'triangular buttress' for something further down and the true triangular buttress as his 'final rise'. So instead of going left of the true triangular buttress I followed a well-worn path right of it then up what turned out to be the exposed drop below the crux at the true final rise (ie: just beyond the ridge). Didnít feel like backtracking at that point - moves up the 'final rise' were more difficult than I was expecting.

With Louise and Ursa, both took turns in leading. I didn't get a chance (not that I minded too much). Not as icy as gully yesterday but a bit slippery had to watch my step! Over before we realised it but very enjoyable, would ascend more directly next time we went up gully.

Opted out of the lower main wall but once committed to upper part of scramble opted for sling-assists for 3 exposed sections on slippery wet rock. Good day out overall.
