Rockfax Description
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 winter
1) 1, 130m. The broad central gully leads directly to The Spider
2) 1/2, 60m. The gully at the top left corner of The Spider passes some nice icy steps
3) 1, 110m. Continue up the snow slope to gain the ridge right of the summit. © Rockfax
