Cwm Lloer, Pen Yr Ole Wen

I have been out with repeat client and friend Andy today who fancied a bit of progression from winter walking onto graded ground. We have had a reasonable covering of snow overnight down to about 600m and we headed into Cwm Lloer on Pen Yr Ole Wen to make the most of it. There is still quite a lot of hard neve in the main gully lines and with ankle deep fresh snow on top it made for good fun. We climbed the Headwall (1) and descended it again via a different line after visiting the summit. The Cwm was nicely sheltered from the wind and gave a nice mix of ground to play on. A cracking day in the snow with more forecast tonight.
