P1 (shared with adjacent V.Diff.) quite wet and grassy, otherwise good situations and good rock - if you stay on the arete until you are very nearly at the top you can avoid virtually all the grass save for that on P1. Belay at top of P2 is massive spike. Gear sometimes spaced but ok, steepest section of rib hard for severe.JdotP - Lead O/S - 31/Aug/14 with Anita Wilczynska, Magda Borekowska
Had the crag to ourselves on a gorgeous sunny day. Scrambled up to Pen y Ole Wyn and down to the Ogwen tea shack.

Martin led all

Nice grip, but some serious exposure. Also best avoided when not too cloudy because the cloud decends here fast!

Don't know what the other folk are on about. It's a really nice route. Lots of gear, all solid rock, excellent position. But stay and belay on the route, makes for a more continuous climb.

Nice climb, not that loose or grassy. Excellent friction.

Loose, chossy, muddy, and bugger all gear. Lead it all; 2nd and 3rd as one (suggested belays rubbish, just stick to the rib). 1st pitch horrible, good climbing on the rib for the second two.

Led P1 which was OK. P2 is by far the best and P3 is even more chossy than the first!

P2 good, other two dire. Very cold.

Great P2, Poor P1 and P3, too much grass, Not worth a star. Great veiws though.

The route feels delicate and poorly protected, but the situation and rock are excellent.

Rained off after pitch 2 - having already backed off Kirkus's route in the wet (K route did only get S in the 1975 guide we had with us so seemed a fair bet in the damp...)
