Dan Radford 23 Feb, 2018 Solo O/S First winter climb for Coggo and first for me in Wales. Good neve from the base of the gully, well rimed up towards the top and perfect weather. The two icey steps provided Coggo with a few moments of terror as she acquainted herself with dual axe wielding but otherwise plain sailing

Misha 5 Feb, 2012 Solo O/S Rain overnight, warm in the morning and a late start from the B&B but still went for a wander from the CC hut in the hope of finding some snow. Hardly anything until above Cyrn Las, where there was still lots of snow left. Unfortunately it was soft and wet, which made for heavy going. The ice in PF LH was a bit soggy but ok. Holly was really up for it and happy to try soloing, first with one axe and then with two (we only had two between us so I had to climb using her placements for handholds, which worked ok). Holly got up it fine with a bit of encouragement. Traversed into RH and bumslid down it, back at the hut just as it got dart shortly after 6 (set off around midday). Holly's first ice lead/solo and third winter route after Cneifion Stream and Hidden Gully the previous day. Our first two days of climbing when we've been together.

Misha 3 Jan, 2011 Solo O/S Excellent neve all the way up to the icy section, which was unfortunately quite short but provided a bit of II/III fun, with some large dinner plates forming. Descended the RH version. 1hr 50mins hut to top, 1hr 15mins for the descent - the path past Cyrn Las was a bit tricky due to being a bit iced up.

Ewan Russell 7 Jan, 2010 Solo O/S Conditions nearly good. However I imagine if leading would have been a touch scary as the crux was probably more III and would have been interesting to try and find gear. Ski'd down the tourist path afterwards which was like a long blue run, if a bit bare in parts and the end.
