5 out of 5 stars solo

There was a good covering of ice and packed snow for the full length of the route. This made it an easy grade 3. The first gully was so good only the front points went in. The V groove needed a bit of bridging and the move out of the overhang felt precarious but after that the last part was just a romp in perfect snow in the rarely seen welsh sun.
