Wrinkled slabs, Castle chimney, notch arete link up. Very enjoyable, worth more than one star. If I had to pick a favourite it would be this one.

After Bastow Gully/Buttress scramble. Called West Face Direct in the guide we had. descent wasn't that fun but scramble was worth it. Then down little/north gully and back along Heather terrace.

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.

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.

Great long scramble. 2 1/2 pitches, 1 piece of gear, 0% polish. Loved it! Made for a wicked end to a long day with Columbyne and Cannon Ridge, 450m of climbs, great value!

Awesome scramble, very atmospheric with the mist coming in and out. Would be a cool bivy at the start.

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.

In evening sun after West Face. Lovely, but over too quickly.

Very good and certainly worth a second star. Great rock all the way, though unfortunately the clag that came in just at its foot lessened the exposure and cut down on the views. All in all it was a bit of a shock to hear the voices of the crowds going up the North Ridge in the last gasps of the route!

Briefly looked at the 'VDiff' direct start, but it was a dirty overhanging chimney so decided against it. Moved together. A great little route, undersold by the guidebook.
