Idwal Staircase and the Cneifion Arete

Andy and I headed into Cwm Idwal this morning with a showery forecast, keen to see how long we could keep the waterproofs off for. We started up the Idwal Staircase (2) and as we gained height we pulled up through the clouds for the second time in as many days to give some more stunning views. It was still pretty muggy and a bit more overcast than yesterday but waterproofs stayed in the bag once more. We then headed up the Cneifion Arete (3), enjoying both routes entirely to ourselves and then being treated to a Billy Goat scrap on the Gribin Ridge.
