Ideal conditions for the polariser lenses to capture the contrasts of snow/blue sky/cloud. Thanks to the hundreds who trampled nicely compact paths on Sat/Sun for me to make easy progress and 'ski' back down the PYG (especially up top by the zig zags!) No metal-work 'necessary' but advisable - ice axe only saw 5 minutes use on the steeper upper part of the East Ridge of Crib Goch Start: 7am Pen y Pass Summit: 12:30-13:30 (lots of photos takes time!) Descent: Pyg Track, back for 14:30
