286m, 12 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A route that is steeped in history, and the classic of the buttress, but it is frequently the scene of benightments! Start below the right-hand end of Heather Shelf.
1) 20m. Follow the groove to Heather Shelf.
2) 30m. Climb diagonally rightwards rounding two ribs. Just round the second, climb upwards to belay 4m left of a prominent spike, level with a dog-leg in the corner to the right.
3) 15m. Climb up to belay left of a quartz band.
4) 25m. Move right and climb the quartz band. The groove above is tricky and leads to moves rightwards to some ledges. Move onto the right-hand side of the rib to the right and climb it to a spike belay.
5) 33m. A vegetated groove up and right leads to a tall, thin plank-like block.
6) 33m. Scramble up rightwards to reach the Great Terrace - a large grassy shelf - and belay to the right of this below and left of a red wall with 'RW' etched in the base. © Rockfax

Team of 3. Didn't go far enough right on pitch 2 (only climbed over 1 rib and not 2). Another team arrived and decided it would be a good idea to pull off a microwave-sized block which nearly killed my 2nd and snapped my rope. Carried on up a poorly protected chossy gulley before eventually finding the grand terrace a rope length to our right. With the 2nd's low on psych and nobody wanting to climb underneath said route-cleaner we decided to bail on to Teminal Arête. Climbed the 3 pitches together.

Great day out. Walk in and out added to the adventure. Started up paradise/black arête and had to retreat as started to rain. Headed up avalanche and experienced full storm conditions. Turned into a thrilling, slippery mess and route finding was a nightmare as we could only see about 3m in front of ourselves. All in all a top day out.

peter.ravenscroft27 13/May AltLd

Adventure, Slime, Poor Gear, Poor Beta... what more do you want!! amazing day out. i can only pursume, that the rockfax guide description of the 10 pitch is wrong... we went diagonally left from the right hand corner of green gallery and felt legit which worked its way up to red walls top pitch... even if we went wrong we found a parrell crack system which was a lot of fun to climb and best protection on whole route. moved together the whole way, although still took 4hours, was blown away by the position and had such a awesome day finishing on the horse shoe. A must Do!

with Stu Mont
caradoc 10/May AltLd O/S

We started with the pitch on the right hand side of the Heather shelf, it felt a bit scrappy and unprotected for the first half, I began to wonder if I really wanted to do the route. Things improved on the second pitch, good holds and protection on the traverse although there are some loose spikes. Helen led the third pitch up good rock. The fourth is the crux with polish and slippery quartz holds, several of them loose. Once past the groove above the quartz it eases off to scrambling. Overall, reasonable at VDif but probably much harder in the wet, especially the first pitch. Red Wall. After a bit of confusion about where to go I found the traverse which was a bit longer than I remembered. The 4a move took a little while to commit to..probably severe, it certainly made an impression. Longlands also took a while to work out the start. It's on the left side of the quartz. The 'niche' described in the guide is confusing. The final wall is way harder than VDif (old guide) but I guess that is what you can expect on mountain routes, it's an overall grade. An excellent day's climbing with a proper summit at the end.

Led odd pitches. Climbing itself is nothing too special (though not bad by any means) but makes a great mountain day out. As we topped out Snowdon was in the sun so we thought we'd go up it since we were nearly there, but by the time we got there the sodding cloud had come in again. One day I'll climb Snowdon and actually see the view!

andrewmc 08/Jun/16 AltLd O/S

Moving together. Led the second half of Avalanche, the first half of Red Wall and the final slab of Longlands Continuation. Avalanche was awesome until the last pitch (which was vague). The first pitch of Red Wall was excellent but quite tough. After this the route was marred by poor, friable and dusty rock and very vague lines that seem to bear only a passing resemblance to the description. The first part of Longlands (doing it as described up the left arête of a steep wall) is hard and seems to achieve very little as there is an easy looking chimney just to the left. I found the final slab both hard because of the poor dusty rock and extremely bold (and I normally manage to lace things that are supposed to be 'bold') - at one point I had a 10m runout while about 20m up... 3 stars for Avalanche, 2 stars for Red Wall (first pitch) and 0 stars for Longland's.

Underwhelming. The guidebook promised a mega classic route, but bar a few pitches, the climbing was average, the rock loose and the gear poor. The promised round of applause and flashing cameras was not forthcoming either...

Positives - really long mountain route with good views and can walk up Snowdon after. Negatives - average to poor climbing, only really good pitch was the final one, two pitches were literally walks.

Very damp start. Not my favourite rock - friable, loose, uninspiring placements. Difficult/not obvious routefinding, but wandered around & eventually found finishing slab. 'Classic' route, but no surprise that Lliwedd's popularity waned!! No need for a large rack or 'modern' protection - a couple of nuts on each pitch seemed par for course

Had problems routefinding (blaming Rockfax pocket guide). We did some of central chimney but ended Avalanche in the right place.

An epic outing in the rain and buffeting winds and an interesting walk back down to the Llanberis pass in the dark. The quality of the climbing didn't live up to expectations although this may have been at least partly down to the general wetness. Protection was very poor on most pitches and there was LOTS of loose rock. A memorable day for the adventure and the situation (stunning views across the Snowdon lakes) but not really for the climbing unfortunately.

Chris P1-5 P6 is an easy scramble. Rory P7-11. Zoe P12. Really nice route. Excellent quality rock. Perfect weather, and the climb was bone dry. Found the route easy to follow once we had located the start. Finished the day off with a pint in the Snowdon cafe and a wander down Crib Goch.

Excellent day out. Use the marble streaks on the wall to identify the start of the route. Keep an eye as you approach; when you're at the foot of the face it can be difficult to pick out the start. Oh, and stay away from the fractured red stuff on Red Wall - Climb more to the right.

Stupidly spent an hour climbing XS desperate choss to reach the heather ledge; lobbing mud, stones, flakes, heather, wet sods and swear words off in the process. Route finding went well thereafter, but you could see why it's tricky. Lovely traditional mountain route and needs to be viewed with a mountaineer's hat on. Some loose stuff. If you are on route, it's not vegetated at all. Final polished slab had some bold spice - a sting in the tail. Stunning views. Great Top Out!

Started climbing at around 10am and finished about 5pm. The route is good, but hard to follow, with grass and mud in various bits throughout. The final longlands pitch (S 4b in newest guide), felt at lot more VS 4b/c taking the direct line up the right hand side of the main slab, perhaps there's a different S 4b line up it! Topped out to a round of applause from the walkers above watching my everymove, and a stunning cloud inversion to the East.

A fucking epic... The hardest, dirtiest most overgrown Vdiff know to mankind with no protection to boot... Experience was made better by my partner getting quite seriously ill halfway up requiring the aid of Snowdons big yellow air taxi! Will be back to complete the job though! : )

Enjoyed the climb but don't follow any polish as all the wrong route choices are polished as well as the true routes! A few pairs overtook us but often then climbed the wrong route for the next pitch - requires good route finding and concentrating on the route description.
