Nice route. A little more mentally stimulating than the cracks on the left slab as you actually have to look for holds but there are plenty of them all where you need them - fun climbing.

Climbed first pitch by traversing in from the right. Used it as practice for escaping the system and performing a Y-hang rescue on unresponsive climber.

Some of the hand and foot holds were completely iced over, which left the lower parts quite runout indeed. Climbed in big boots. As a result, was a bit more difficult than the grade suggests.

Beautiful morning, after an invisible early stretch (ended up at Tryfan Fach due to loish mist and,dampness initially. v. Busy halfterm day - lots of families or climbers club holidayers. All friendly though. Done with sian as an easier warmup and so she could practise interpreting guide book and leading to belaying point, looking at gear placements and belay.
