Mike & I decided on Crib Goch today as a good route choice. It was suprisingly warm on the walk/scramble up to the ridge proper. In fact at one point I was down to a t-shirt, bizarre considering the weather we have had here in Wales recently.
Very little snow left, and what is left is at present soft slush, at all levels. We did not need crampons or axes at any point.
Trinity gullies have been well stripped, and what snow there is needs a considerable amount of freeze/thaw for them to come into condition. Hopefully we will get that before it all melts.
