Hi, Im planning this weekend to do 2 days of scrambling on the Snowdon Horsehoe (Crib Goch) and Tryfan (Bristly Ridge), the report looks ok but Id like to have some back up walks to do in case of bad weather, can anyone recommend anything?
Done both of those in torrential rain, like anywhere else in Wales on a rainy day - it's not much fun!
Try the other side of the Horseshoe maybe?
I would say all your routes are fine in the wet. Obviously they're popular and therefore polished, but the rock is sound. For something like Crib Goch it would be wind that causes problems more than rain.
Something like the False Gribin onto Y Gribin is easier, and gives a lot of scrambling onto the Glyders. Daer Ddu ridge on Siabod is a pleasant grade 1 open to some variation.
Thanks for the advice guys, I'll probably go for the routes I planned for unless its blowing a gale, the weathers looking good though so fingers crossed.
