Outrageously good fun! Had done Chasm Face VD first and actually think the scramble is better. Rachel found the dark squeeze harder than the vice of the VDif. I love a thrutch. An absolute classic. Got rope out for the steep bit up to the Catwalk. Up and down the aptly named Catwalk for a photo shoot several times... (checked out the Arch Tempter escape too... how many people have had to cross that swearing to cut down on pies after having been spat out of the squeeze ?)

Scrambled to Chasm. Climbed with ease because I am very small.

A memorable route! The actual grade 3 scramble was shorter than I imagined [one pitch] but brilliant. Great climbing on the steep wall below the exposed catwalk, before entering the bowels of the mountain for some pot-holing! Do NOT try to do the cave section with your rucsac on! We hauled them up after Sean had climbed it. Very tight in there but some good old-fashioned thrutching got us to the top. Afterwards, we moved together over easier ground and scrambled to the summit of Glyder Fach. Overall, this capped off a fantastic day out on superb rock in stunning weather.

Seriously wet and green at the time but it would be an amazing scramble in dryer conditions. The cave is TIGHT.

Excellent day out yet again. The weather was absolutely appalling rain and more rain, conditions on the crag were very greasy, Stiff winter boots a must. Leading was little too er at times yet great fun. The Chasm pitch was fantastic, squeezing into the bowels of the mountain was a bit scary and climbing techniques were more a kin to those used in caving. Dom was just far too large and needed to retreat and a rescue ensued from above. The final pitch out of the room was easy but also crazy never heal hooked in a pair of stiff boots before! Superb
