Finally got myself up the Clogwyn Du. 9hr round trip from London to get this route done. Amazing conditions, all pitches are amazing, didn't disappoint. Happy sitting at my desk now working away with sore legs and hands.

Got the main pitch. Enjoyed this so much and great to finish what I couldn’t do 5 or so years ago. Absolutely brilliant climbing, one of the best winter routes I’ve done.

Richard Kendrick 16/Dec/17 Lead O/S

Led all pitches, amazing climbing on one of the best crags I’ve ever been too!

Awesome crag and unexpectedly mint conditions. Misha took a lovely fall into space when it was pretty much in the bag. Shame because it was an excellent lead on none to obvious moves. I had a go to try and retrieve Mishas tools from the first belay. Got pretty close put popped off on the tricky slab. Pumped and getting late I back climbed and stripped the pitch b4 Misha abbed the line to get his axes.

Mint conditions, rimed up and turf frozen (despite the BMC thermometer saying turf was just under +1C), not that there's any turf to speak of on this route anyway. Fell off due to a stupid mistake, had both axes next to / on the belay flake at the end of the crux pitch - wasn't even the hard bit! Long but safe fall into space but both axes got left behind due to the leash attachment cord snapping. Couldn't climb back up to them so had to lower off. Dave had a go but couldn't reach them either, so I had to ab in to retrieve them from the toup (only needed two abseils so didn't take too long). Great pitch, will be back! Easily a grade harder than anything else I've done (e.g. Sioux Wall and Darth Vader) - pumpy, no decent rests, devious line, technical steep slab and all very sustained, though not that long.

Not a bad start to the season! Led P1 (a hard-fought lead!) and P3. Fantastic route, definitely 3*

Took a couple of lobs leading the crux pitch. Matt then led it in fine style as I recovered. Was fine following, nevermind.

Sport climbing for the bearded brigade. Exposed but as safe as they come.
