THE classic low-grade winter route in Wales. Long, atmospheric and involved, this route gives a great mountain adventure and in good, firm snow is a great choice for first steps in winter1) 1, 130m. The broad central gully leads directly to The Spider2) 1/2, 60m. The gully at the top left corner of The Spider passes some nice icy steps3) 1, 110m. Continue up the snow slope to gain the ridge right of the summit. © Rockfax
