100m, 2 pitches. On the opposite side of Cwm Cneifion to Clogwyn Du. Mixed pitch up the right side of the Tower on Tower Rib. Climb up stepped corners, just before the crux pitch of Tower Gully.

Soloed up to the belay & Rod led the key pitch. A great sustained & well protected pitch in great condition today, tho' it was very windy in the gully & on the route (more so than on the plateau!). PS Why is this placed in Clogwyn Du when it's in Cwm Cneifion?!

A great pitch which felt pretty tough to me. Steep and pumpy crux. Decent gear throughout. Pleased to get it done as we nearly bailed from ogwen due to rain and high temps.

1st grade IV/5 mixed lead climb. Tower gully was lean, some snow but mainly ice, which made for some interesting steps and the tower pitch was an education in Mixed & tooling. Some debate on the true winter nature of this climb, the purists would argue it was too 'black'but I can't see it being much harder / different. Guess I'll have to come back and do it again ! Part of a great alpine day which included a descent of Y Gribin in the dark & mist and getting back to car at 8.45.
