Northern Star 2 Feb AltLd Expected this to be sheltered but wind was blowing right up the gully. Some nice large ice steps inside so we pitched it as it was a chance to use the brand new ice screws. No need to pitch really though. Unlike last time I did this the right hand exit slab at top was rather thin so we opted for the straight on which was loaded with ice.

Julesthe1st 17 Mar, 2018 AltLd O/S Brilliant day. Tranquil and sunny periods interspersed with sleet and storm force gusts. Planned on moving together but ice was brittle and sending large chunks down so we pitched it with a couple of runners. Brittle ice and maybe a bit lean but was highly entertaining if a little too short.

Misha 2 Jan, 2011 Solo O/S Have been wanting to do this since last season but have never had time as always seem to finish Clogwyn Ddu routes shortly before or in the dark. Walked over at a brisk pace from Y Garn after doing C Gully there. The walk up to Glyder Fawr was probably the hardest bit as the gully itself was disappointingly straightforward: neve almost all the way, tiny bits of ice higher up. It must be quite a bit more interesting if fully iced up.
