Info from Mike Peacock: Hi Andy,
I've been out again today. Fresh snow fall down to just above Ogwen so me and Rachel Kingham headed into Cwm Bochlwyd and climbed The False Gribin. It isn't in the guide but was very pleasant, and makes a logical approach to Y Gribin itself (better than the path!). The snow is still soft but seems to be firming up. From the Football Pitch we decided to call it a day and headed back down.
