Climbed moving together and included the additional lower buttresses, poor conditions, very greasy on the rock

Late afternoon after biblical rain, windy. Enjoyed it, especially the start and the boot crack. Quartz crack much trickier in the wet.

A nice route, looked as though it deteriorated towards the top so I bailed onto the buttress to the left which had some much more exposed and fantastic positions.

Roped the odd part 'just in case'. Not a great scramble, almost all of it is avoidable, the route spent more time on grass and heather than rock. Slightly disappointing compared to North Ridge of Tryfan but a good route still.

Wet, greasy rock and nearly got boots stuck in the crack....but great day out had by all. Moved together for most of it but pitched the trickier sections. Matt led the difficult crack pitch.

Started up Ashton's 'square-cut slot' on tower then his 'difficult face' out of notch (each the only grade 2 I noticed) but at his 'difficult quartz break' changed to the more detailed route description of Sparks et al - from their 'spike on the skyline' onwards. Not sure I could follow their description very far so defaulted to Ashton's simpler 'ascend the easier upper part of the ridge at will', though did not find his '10m boot-width crack'.

First grade 2! Lovely scramble, technically harder than a grade 1 definitely but not too much exposure which made it an excellent introduction to the grade. Really enjoyed this. Was going to go up Cloggy after but ran out of time.

Overcommitted on one slab, weight spread between left middle finger and right boot where I considered and was coaxed that I could still move with my full winter sack. Otherwise as hard or easy as you want or (mis)judge.

With UMWC in hail,rain and gusting winds! Very wet and vegetated in places but worthwhile.
