1000m. A stunning ridge walk right to the summit of snowdon from the south west. feels like your in the alps on a sunny winters day. crampons and axe highly recomended, but no technical climbing required. (small obstacles can be found if you are that way inclined)

Trevers 19 Jan Solo In descent. Up and over most obstacles. A fantastic ridge which doesn't feel too serious, and a great introduction to winter ridges for Iskra!

spenser 20 Feb, 2016 Solo O/S An absolutely cracking day out, 4 hours 45 minutes car to car up the Rhyd Ddu path and down Snowdon ranger, lots of snow about after the zig zags, had to crawl onto the summit due to the crazy winds! Possibly my favourite way up Snowdon.

Alex Parker 26 Jan, 2013 Solo My first Winter route! Easy, but tiring and some hairy conditions on the ridge before we put our crampons on. Temperature on top with wind gusts was unnerving.
