The Grist 20 Jan, 2018 Lead O/S Nice pitch. Pretty steep and sustained for a grade 4. I thought this could be V (5).....although maybe I am rubbish. Very enjoyable route. Never pumpy or hard just steep and precarious in places.

geoff b 16 Dec, 2017 AltLd O/S 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!). Thought it was hard for a IV. PS Why is this placed in Clogwyn Du when it's in Cwm Cneifion?!

Owain Llewelyn 18 Dec, 2011 2nd 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.

jandyd05 23 Jan, 2011 Lead O/S 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.
