Some fairly exposed bits on this! 'Cave' section is good fun. Quite greasy, especially above and below the catwalk.

Start of Chasm Route proper with the easier scramble finish due to time running short as this was the last route of the day.

Simon Cahill 13/Aug/16 -

MIA practice day with Luke & Dom. Ascend Chasm Face, had a look at the crack to the right and above the Catwalk (Steve Ashton book page 64, top right of photo) well protected but hard in wet conditions & boots. Went back on route but didn't fancy the "caving expedition" and "The Vice" so crossed the fallen block forming The Arch and escaped up easy slabs. Descent via faint path into the first gully which becomes steep and requires abseiling, final pitch is over 25m but can be split using a less than perfect anchor mid pitch (behind the waterfall). Caution on the final abseil the narrow groove (avoidable) 2m below the anchor can and did take the sheaf off the rope.

A wet and very slimy scramble with three of usa good route slippy conditions made it more fun but while practicing short roping and lowered decent ropes sheath got shredded bounced about a to a foot from the rocks Simon managed to sort out an abseil from a awkward spot epic day

Was raining when we started. Short roping / small pitches. The chasm was interesting. It's tight.

Read extensively about this route. Some great notes below; a must read! Lead by Mike Raine via PYB on advanced scrambling course, moving togrther as a three. What a route! Dry and sunny initially, passed the chockstone to a wide ledge and then over the tricky corner to gain the chasm and up. Next ledge led up to the diff wall where I gave the "ape like swings" a go. Fun. Catwalk was spiced up by Doug getting his boot jammed. After much coaxing and a swift thwack the boot came free and caught me square in the face! Poses for a pic then on to the bowels of the mountain. Keep low on the squeeze and do a sideways "caterpillar" to make it to the chimney. Simply superb climb up using drop-knee and bit of thrutching. Reborn out the top and then off on some bouldery route findinf on superb rock. Overall a great route with 4 cruxes, each of a different nature. Unmissable!!

Outrageously good fun! Had done Chasm Face VD first and actually think the scramble is better. Rachel found the dark squeeze harder than the vice of the VDif. I love a thrutch. An absolute classic. Got rope out for the steep bit up to the Catwalk. Up and down the aptly named Catwalk for a photo shoot several times... (checked out the Arch Tempter escape too... how many people have had to cross that swearing to cut down on pies after having been spat out of the squeeze ?)

A memorable route! The actual grade 3 scramble was shorter than I imagined [one pitch] but brilliant. Great climbing on the steep wall below the exposed catwalk, before entering the bowels of the mountain for some pot-holing! Do NOT try to do the cave section with your rucsac on! We hauled them up after Sean had climbed it. Very tight in there but some good old-fashioned thrutching got us to the top. Afterwards, we moved together over easier ground and scrambled to the summit of Glyder Fach. Overall, this capped off a fantastic day out on superb rock in stunning weather.

Seriously wet and green at the time but it would be an amazing scramble in dryer conditions. The cave is TIGHT.

Excellent day out yet again. The weather was absolutely appalling rain and more rain, conditions on the crag were very greasy, Stiff winter boots a must. Leading was little too er at times yet great fun. The Chasm pitch was fantastic, squeezing into the bowels of the mountain was a bit scary and climbing techniques were more a kin to those used in caving. Dom was just far too large and needed to retreat and a rescue ensued from above. The final pitch out of the room was easy but also crazy never heal hooked in a pair of stiff boots before! Superb
