Last chance for winter in Wales this year, thawing hard. Snow conditions varied from quite firm in places to deep unconsolodated powder.

Snow was good where stepped out, rubbish where not. Tried going straight up middle early on through rocks but backed off.

Snow quite patchy but managed to pass the middle rocky section on the right. Avoided the icy step as it looked like it might come collapse at any minute! Good snow & some frozen turf towards the top of the route.

Marmoset - Solo O/S - 26/Jan/13

Couple of little ice steps and a pile of unconsolidated snow at the top, breast stroke got me to the top.

JezzaCat - Solo - 07/Dec/12 with Jonathan

A brilliant day out! First winter tick of the year. Not the best conditions and we were swimming at some points! Never the less a good route.
pepperpot - Solo O/S - 05/Dec/12 with Ralph Atkinson

This was the kind of day where it would be very easy to stay in the car, make excuses and then slip back down the A5 and head back east. But I managed to motivate myself and ignore the wind and head off up the path to Cwm Lloer. The stream was raging, the mud was up and the slog was on, but my mood improved gradually as I climbed up and I knew that I had made the right decision. The upper slopes were mainly white and very promising, though the temperature was actually quite warm. The lea of Pen Yr Ole Wen meant that I was in the stillness of Ogwen and the promise of some fun in the gullies spurred me on. So to the Lyn where there was no ice, some slush, some crusty snow and a lot of water. Yet the gullies looked ok. I took on water, stared at the routes and then went for it. Find a good way up, mind the wind on the ridge and get down safely. Happy days.

Not in proper condition. Soft snow and unfrozen turf made it a bit sketchy. We did choose a harder line to make it more interesting, but probably shouldn't have.

Little AndyH - Solo - 17/Dec/11

loose snow, knee and thigh deep. moved across right to find a way up the gully wall for interest and shallower snow! we tied on and moved together, quite why we bothered i don't know, but i suppose that it meant that i didn't have to carry the whole rope up myself.

Long, enjoyable route. Steep at the top. Not many gear placements. Shame about the tragedy which occurred on nearby Hourglass Gully just before we started the route. Very sad to witness the climber's limp body being winched into the helicopter. Made us focus even harder on the climb ahead.

Lots of snow, all the pictures of this route on UKC look bare in comparison. Not always the best quality snow, though a good base layer. We skin'd up and rode some powder down the south side of carnedd daffyd which was fantastic.
