Not helped by another walker following us (who didn't know the way), and who kept telling us how scared other people got at the start of the crib goch ridge (he eventually scared himself into turning back!)

A good choice of lines, though probably picked badly as it seemed a tad loose. Nice warm up to the main traverse.
