Crib Goch

Gwen and I went for an quick walk up Snowdon this afternoon. We walked up Crib Goch, over onto Crib y Ddysgl, up onto Snowdon and back down the Pyg Track.

It was quite wintery up there with lots of unconsolidated powder snow, rhyme, hoar and a small amount of ice. However most of the turf is unfrozen because it is insulated by snow.

Looking down at Reade's Route (which isn't turf dependent) it looks in nick, but anything turfy probably needs a few days.

We wore crampons on Crib Goch, you didn't need them but we felt it was safer with them on.
