4 pitches. The spur rises as a series of rocky steps to the left of the stream starting well below the entrance to the cwm. At 650m the ridge levels out and crosses leftward to a curious square tower (The Pinnacle) directly beneath Castell Y Geifr (Castle of the Goats.) Easy first ledges lead to a steep groove and onto the main crest. A narrow flat gangway "The Neck" is cossed to reach the final pitch.

jennifer.hack 3 Feb AltLd Not as much snow as we'd liked- little purchase for axes so mostly hands rather than axes, but a great rewarding day out! (except for the blasting rain starting just as we topped out)

Cornish boy 14 Jan, 2017 AltLd rpt We had some unfinished business on this route after not finishing it due to darkness a few years ago. I mistakenly logged it as the East Ridge back then. Nice to complete it today. Not much snow on P1. Lee got the crux pitch after 'The Neck'. Did it in 3 pitches.
