Cornish boy 2 Feb Solo Nice to do this route in the winter for a change! Unconsolidated snow, deep in places, but axe was useful for hooking at times. Climbed with Tom, who was good company. We sought out difficulties and the dismount off the sloping table (Xmas tree!) was tricky. Definitely grade II if the harder lines are pursued. Good day out but Baltic on the summit!

Astilath 1 Apr, 2018 Solo Loads of fun. Looks amazing in the snow. Much different character to summer scrambling! Mostly snow and some very limited receding ice on the ridge. The small snow slope at the top was solid and thick and going on a direct line to the summit I found a 10m stretch of fairly steep solid ice to play on!

Edd Aspbury 2 Feb, 2018 - We had much trouble finding the start of the scramble as we were the first to the Spur. Had make a scary downclimb through powdery snow after climbing too high into the cwm. The ridge is exposed in some places and powdery snow made it extra spicy in places. Stunning views throughout though.

bags 18 Jan, 2016 - Nice, straightforward ridge with continuous interest and some great positions. Snow was deep and soggy, but improved with height - we even found a little frozen turf near the top. Carneddau seems to have held on to ice/snow a little better than the Glyders, so although it felt seriously alpine, nothing else up there is in yet - but might be soon, I reckon. Big cornices on the northerly ridges...

Simon Caldwell 31 Jan, 2015 Solo O/S Fantastic day out. Less windy on the ridge than expected, so although we'd brought a rope it stayed in the sack. Great fun seeking out or avoiding difficulties as required. The winds hit as we topped out, headed round the skyline towards Carnedd Llewellyn but descended from the col as we'd had enough being blown over.

Karlos 19 Jan, 2015 - Lots of soft snow made the going slow. Roped up and moved together for most of the route. Turf frozen where exposed or wet, but needs a freeze thaw to consolidate the snow. But then it will be epic!

Tom Hecht 3 Dec, 2010 - A summer 3* classic, Crib Lem spur also makes for a splendid winter ascent. We were the first to break off the Cwm Llafar highway to make tracks up this highly satisfying route today Crampons were put on shortly after gaining the crest of the ridge and back off around 200m below Carnedd Dafydd.
