Starts 30m beyond Green Gully on Heather Terrace. Tricky route finding. Climb a rocky runnel to an ugly step. Move right and climb a short rib to regain the runnel. Don't carry on up; follow a ramp left across the face to a 10m wall. Either climb this or side step it delicately to the left. Walk uphill and climb several small walls on their left. When the Terrace Wall is reached move left along its base and climb rock steps and a chimney to reach North Gully. Either climb the gully to the North Ridge or just take a direct line to the right to reach it.

Misha 14 Aug AltLd rpt Short roping practice with Will and Matt on a wet day. Went right out of the initial gully too soon - need to go up two short roping sections and the moves right and up are easy. Mostly block belays (direct with rope or on slings), has to build only two belays with gear on the whole scramble. Neil took over where it moves into the big gully on the left and carried on to the North Summit.

Misha 2 Jun Lead O/S Led as short roping practice. Fair bit of short pitching but some more flowing sections as well. The line is a bit indistinct in places, obvious in others. The scrambling quality is similarly variable. All good fun and it had stopped raining by the time we got to this after a short scramble on Little Tryfan. Tom took us down the North Ridge.

jascott83 25 May Solo Tricky finding the route on this one, crossed the gully too early at first. Then at the very top we misunderstood the gap. Got there in the end.

Bobby Pearson 11 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S North Butress Scramble from Garry Smiths North Wales Scrambles rte 08. I led Matt and Nick led Ben following our line. Easy scramble with just a few steps that needed protecting. So moved together on a short rope for most of it. Just dropping hand coils for the steps.

mysterion 1 Jun, 2011 - Ashton's topo is inconsistent with his description (topo taking a higher line left out of the runnel than the described route) so I went left from the runnel too late, resulting in more difficulty than I was expecting (since found to be left-hand quarter gully rib - described as around Diff in Ogwen guidebook!) until got back onto route at his 'level area beneath a wide, low wall'.
