Cadair Idris conditions
Thanks again to Huw for the following:
Very cold down here today we were able to walk across llyn y Gader at the neck where the main lake meets the inlet. Ice routes on Cyfrwy seem to be complete but couldn't comment on the thickness of the ice. Any ice that we encountered was very good. The snow is firm as well, really hard in the bowl at the top of the Foxes path. Crampons or Step cutting, it's too hard to just kick your way across.
