Report from Andy McQue

Hi Andy

Initially we (Stewart & myself) went into upper Cwm Glas with the intention of climbing Parsley Fern Gully, but there was a lot of powder in the toe of the gully, & so we decided to break left, to climb Parsley Fern Left-Hand.

We then went onto Snowdon, before coming back on ourselves to do the Crib y Ddysgl-Crib Goch Traverse. There were a few tricky moves when descending Crib Goch North Ridge, but otherwise it was a good day.
