Scrambling Photos: Idwal Staircase, Cneifion Arête, Chasm Face – Part 1/2

26Apr11

Part 1/2 (for digestibility the photos have been split into 2 parts…)

The finest scrambling in Snowdonia to date!

A positively tropical day out, our route took us on a warm up – Idwal Staircase** (2) – to gain lower Cwm Cneifion for the ever-Alpine like Cneifion Arête** (3), before diving into and around the back of Cwm Bochlwyd to gain The Chasm Face*** (3)
