Rockfax Description
A fantastic route with the main difficulty confined to the first pitch. Above this it becomes more of an open scramble up an alpine-like ridge.
1) 20m. Start just right of the toe of the rib and climb the polished wall up and slightly left, to a ledge at the end of the initial steep wall.
2), 3), 4) and 5) 100m. It is now possible to move up the left side of the rib, before gaining the arete proper higher up. Follow this to near the top where slabs and grooves on the left lead to the top. There are many options available for belaying and you can split the pitches to suit. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
D/SG3. A steep, juggy pitch of moderate climbing and an awkward chimney lead to a superb grade three ridge scramble. Alpine in character, this route could only be improved if it was longer.

We hit the snow line as soon as we passed the lake. Bashed up to the bottom of Cneifion Arête fairly quickly. Me and tom swung leads tom leading the first pitch and pitched the grade 3's. Moving between gusts and running out the gear. A few scary moments amongst the spin drift making for a very adventurous grade 3. As we started the second pitch the wind really picked up gusting up to 68mph at the guide station. We estimated the wind was well over 100mph at the summit. Short roped off the summit, bum shuffling with walking axes down the the path, then an easy walk back to the car.

Great finish to an epic mountain day in Ogwen. Started on Tennis Shoe on the slabs, worked up through Piton Route, The Arete and a final climb/scramble up something I can't remember. Then across to the base of Cneifion. Did it in boots and with rucksack.

Weather was grim on the walk in, but improved during the climb and the sun was out by the time we reached the top. I loved the last pitch- almost a whole 50m of absorbing scrambling with some pretty gnarly exposure. Brilliant- think I've got the bug!

Ist pitch is Diff but the rest is a scramble classic reknowned for its airy situation on the edge.

From what people are saying about it being a mod must have gone well off route as I thought it was pushing upper end off diff.

My first 'mountain' route- wicked! pitched first 80' before moving together. led first moving together section.

freelancer_85 23/Oct/06 AltLd O/S

I led the first 40m as one pitch then we moved together for the rest, Nikki leading the first moving together section and I finished it off. My first big mountain route, and on a rather round-about way back to the campsite, we collected a family of five who were lost as it was getting dark and walked them down.

I led the single climb at the bottom then we did the ridge apline style with Ian leading - my first alpine style ascent & quite a rush at one point when straddling a spike with sheer drops on both sides :-)

First solo. Lovely mostly grade 2/3 scramble. Start is the best but always with plenty of pinnacle 'grabs'

Avoided the path just to the left and stuck to the arete proper, maximising the climbing and enjoying the exposure.
