Follow the PYG track until you reach the obvious path leading to the foot of the ridge and begin your traverse to the summit of Garnedd Ugain.
Fantastic winter traverse of one of the UK's finest ridges. In clear weather with good winter conditions this route certainly deserves its 3 star rating.

A positively Alpine-esque day! Starting out at first hint of dawn, the sun broke over the horizon at Bwlch Moch. Ideal conditions for the polariser lenses to capture the contrasts of snow/blue sky/cloud. Thanks to the hundreds who trampled nicely compact paths on Sat/Sun for me to make easy progress and 'ski' back down the PYG (especially up top by the zig zags!) No metal-work 'necessary' but advisable - ice axe only saw 5 minutes use on the steeper upper part of the East Ridge of Crib Goch Start: 7am Pen y Pass Summit: 12:30-13:30 (lots of photos takes time!) Descent: Pyg Track, back for 14:30

Starting at Ynys, scrambled up the North Ridge of Crib y Ddysgl on snowed up rock and turf, passing a couple of tricky sections where an axe came in handy. Didn't bother going to the summit and instead went down Crib Goch, turning left at the bifurcation of the ridge and then descending into Cwm Glas back to Ynys. Were able to move pretty quickly over the snowed up rock. Very enjoyable scramble with an Alpine feel. We were mostly in the sun on Crib Goch but it was quite windy most of the time, which was the only downside to a great day. Started at 9.40 and back around 4pm. Su's friends Paul and John also came along with us.

Wild day with strong wind. Had to crawl on hands on knees to reach the summit of Snowdon. Cross winds not as bad on Crib Goch luckily. Good consolidated snow and ice on the whole horseshoe.

Excellent ridge. It was dry but very windy when I traversed it. Easy, with loads of rock to hold onto and if your bottle goes there's a track a few feet down off the crest. Deffo not one for the dog though. Can get real busy at times like a train of people moving along. Best to do mid-week if you can.

Climbed many times over the years usually as a way back after climbing on the Trinity Face, especially if it's a nice afternoon/evening.
