Misha 13 Jun Lead O/S After Nor Nor Grooves. Unpleasant chossy descent down the gully from the Notch on NR. Started from the thrutchy squeeze chimney, great fun and utterly desperate for the first few moves. Did several pitches with belays off spikes, slings or gear in a couple of places but didn’t place any gear in between the belays. Pretty tricky in places but I might have done some harder variations. Not much short roping ground. Good clean rock though and reasonably grippy. Led everything, then Tim took us down NR. Helped shepherd a group of school kids from below the main scrambling section on NR after one of their teachers got injured in a fall (another team stayed with the casualty to await the MRT). Damp day but not raining by the time we got on this.

Stuart Hurworth 26 May Solo O/S Brilliant clean rock with some good exposure at the grade amazing views and great fun just getting to it from milestone continuation! Some moves that make you think a bit without a rope, but never desperate!

Northern Star 27 Mar Solo Down climbed from the notch after Nor Nor Grooves. Possibly started a little low but some tough moves from a large ledge required to gain the arete. Once on the arete, 100m (or so) of airy and highest quality rock scrambling awaits. Brilliant!

Neil Watson 17 Sep, 2016 Lead Final route of link up. Wrinkled Slabs, Castle Chimney. Well worth 3 stars. Go up the right to make it easy or on the left to make it a little more interesting. Just so much good clean rock. Missed the 'VD' start ... VDiff? Yeah, right. Used the gully for descent which took a little longer than expected. On reflection not a good idea. Should have done North Ridge either down or up to South Gully. Ended up walking down with head torches ... all good fun. Missed the 1800 table reservation with the rest of the gang at Bryn Twrch who were incredibly good and rustled us up a couple of burgers when we got there after 2100.

Ian Archer 17 Sep, 2016 Lead O/S From V Buttress Route. Excellent rock. Nice and sunny, good views. Good route and top out not far from the top of Tryfan. At the top of the climb Alan ralised he had forgot to put his approach shoes in his rucksack and left at the bottom of the climb. He was half way down when we found them under the rope he had been coiling.

thlcr1 8 Sep, 2015 Solo Soloing/scrambling day. Route on little tryfan. Then Bastow buttress on Tryfan East face. Finally descended Notch gully ( unpleasant) before coming back up the arete. Perfect scrambling/ easy climbing in a magnificent location. Given 2+ in the new scrambling guide which is probably OK, but perhaps more of a mod rock climb if there's a distinction.
