Rockfax joins this climb with Hope after first belay; however there is a largely independent continuation to the top of the slabs, joining Charity, as per the Ogwen definitive

birks3746 6 Feb, 2016 AltLd Go to Wales they said. It will be in winter condition they said. Conditions: freezing cold rain, driving winds. Wearing big boots in constant rain, started up Central Rib, got to the next stance. Waterfall coming down the funnel of the next pitch. Traversed onto Normal route. Favourite moment: straddling one of many waterfalls, the wind picks up, blowing the waterfall upwards into my face like a fire hose...I started screaming it was so cold!
