Excellent route, with lots of scope for personal variation. Whilst none of the moves present much difficulty alone, don't expect the route to be a push over - the exposure alone justifies a rope.Karlos - 29/Mar/14 with Harriet

We did this after the Parson's Nose. The downclimb into the notch was a bit sketchy, especially as I was last on the rope! A great scramble though, but bloody cold for May. We were all glad of our belay jackets and gloves. It was gone 7pm by the time we topped out so we decided, with darkness approaching, to take the Miners' Track back down to Pen y Pass to start the long plod down the Llanberis Pass towards the car [parked at Blaen-y-nant]. Many thanks to the kind chap who picked us up almost straight away and saved us nearly an hour. It was a 13 hour epic as it was!

fantastic scramble easily the best I've done.
robbraby - Solo - 05/Nov/11 with Steveo
Very good climb did the Clogwyn y Person Nose start up the right hand edge (although also scrambled up the initial slab), soloing throughout.
Having done a fair few scrambles in Scotland and a few in the lakes / snodownia I think this has got to be one of the best scrambles of it's type and grade in the UK.
The nose I thought to be solid Mod and is listed as such in the llanberis pass guide. There is a move near the top that would be quite hard to reverse so quite commiting.
The upper ridge is hard 2 / easy 3 sort of grade with some stiffish moves that if you fell off doing you'd be lucky not to fall the whole way down the crag.
We walked in, in just over 1 hour so not too far really.

Snowy rock is not the best environment for approach shoes. Felt at home with the trainers crowd at the summit though.
