Descended after ascent of Main Gully Ridge on Glyder Fach with Ben & John. Quite windy, but dry. Good MIA ropework practice and more straight forward than I was expecting.

Good climb with sustained interest through out. Some tough move and good situations. Much harder than the summer route.

nice bit of snow on route but by all means no full winter conditions. i used my axe a few times on the assent for hooking when needed but did not see the need for crampons as nothing was even remotely frozen. was a good little route. get in some nice positions when you stick to the arÍte.

Wotcha - 2nd O/S - 17/Jan/10
Some of the hardest mixed, under deep powder I'd ever lead (P1). Very little protection also. P1 was more like IV/4. Great day out in clear, calm conditions. Descent via The Gribin Ridge.

TobyA - Lead O/S - 29/Dec/09 with Matthew Higginson
Lots of powder snow which made things tricky at times. No need for axes but crampons would have helped on the harder steps high up.

Chimney was awesome, even if I did turn the air blue when my rucksac prevented an involuntary hip-jam being reversed.
Done in alpine-style in our boots.
I'm giving it the winter grade tick cos there was a fair bit of snow up there today!

hated every minute of this climb, we should of never done it, being my first time on rope - we climbed idwal ordinary route and kept going. to be fair our route finding wasn't much good here and the weather wasn't to clever neither. getting to the top was a huge releif but no sooner had we done it we wanted to attack again to make amends for taking the wrong route. I will be almost certainly be going back to the "Cneifion Arete" to put this one to bed !

In winter conditions, with no winter kit. Deep snow in the cwm. Arete is mainly spiky rock so grip no issue, wading through knee deep snow to get to the route more so. With Ash Green.

Mostly completed the ridge moving together alpine style, as some sections are rather exposed. A great grade 3 scramble. Definitely worth doing on a not so windy day.
