Follow the same stream as Nameless Stream but higher up, starting in Cwm Cneifion and finishing just under Clogwyn Du. A couple of short steep icefalls (25/30m) followed by another 100m or so of short steps.

First attempt at ice climbing. It was cool like everything its going to take some getting used to. The initial steeper section was pretty cool but I found the last vertical section to be the crux. It felt cool to do some proper bridging need to work on my left hand swing as I struggled to get a good placement at the top. Still great fun no falls and finished with a lovely bout of hot aches.

Didn't realise this was a route! We saw the fat ice on our way up to Clogwyn Du and had a little go. *Very* wet this low down, quite soft too; picked/kicked through an ice lens or two to find water running between layers of ice. Joe's first winter climb!

Alpine style. Nice fat ice.

Just about climbable, some decent ice but mostly thin and delaminating or mushy, required care. Did on the way up to Clogwyn Ddu, which turned out to be in great nick for the mixed.

Some sections of ice hollow and fair amount of water. Climbed carefully! ...and Misha, you were heard on Clogwyn Ddu. Now I know what it was all about!!

On the way to Clogwyn Du. Mushy so a bit of care required.

Thin and watery. Still, better than nothing!

Holly's first winter route! Started off with basic crampon skills in the easy snow gully to the left of the ice fall, followed by a bit of traversing on the ice. After that it was time to go for the route and Holly managed it well and really enjoyed it. Had seen this a few times on the walk to Cwm Cneifion so had been meaning to do it for a while. I'd say it was II/III.

Did several routes on lower section. Solid ice but water running underneath.

The first big fall wasn't in, but higher up there were some smaller steps to play on.

Nice diversion on route to the back of the cwm

fun if scary in a collapsing sort of way- some comedy ice screws as well

Rob led the first bit. Started well, up good ice, before deteriorating into semi-frozen collapsing ice. Soloed the rest, which was good solid ice again. A fun approach to Clogwyn Du.
