Clogwyn y Person Arete*** 3
[Laura on Clogwyn y person arete, 2 kb]Approach by walking and scrambling up the path from the open wooden bridge crossing the river by the A4086 about a mile up from Gwastadnant.This is the downstream of two neighbouring bridges.Following the path up into Cwm Glas, past the imposing crag of Cyrn Las with the excellent Main Wall climb brings you up to the right of the arête as seen in the photo. The normal grade two route follows the right wall of the gully on the right hand side of the arête pleasantly and with some interest up to the obvious jammed boulder, which can be seen from afar.From here one can forge ahead straight up until the first barrier.A well worn rightwards traverses lead to suitable weaknesses in the defences. The crux is easy to recognise when you find it - a shallow chimney that seems to offer little for the feet. Jugs above, judicially applied pressure with the possible assistance of a toe jam on the right will overcome this without great difficulty. Above this point, the main difficulties are over, unless you take another traverse to the right and find yourself faced with an awkward mantelshelf onto a restricted platform - easier without a rucksack. Eventually, easy ground leads up to join with the main Crib y Ddysgl ridge, from where a circuit of Cwm Glass is possible to the right or a traverse of Crib Goch and descent of its North Ridge is possible. If the latter is taken, take the scree to the left before reaching the end of the ridge - easily previewed from the Clogwyn Y Person Arête during the ascent on a nice day.This is an excellent route mostly on clean rock, with interesting route finding.

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!

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.

Major epic. Jamie and I took Rodney (68) and Ollie (14) up and after 3 pitches we came to the tricky corner which in big boots and on greasy rock just wouldn't 'go'. We had to lower them of and abseil down in pitch blackness and clag...and then find our way down to the pass which we did at 9.30pm. Awesome day:-)

continued after parsons nose. we had rope and rack so chose the more direct and harder alternatives, which felt a lot harder than grade 3.
