A route I've done plenty of times. Up the Daear Ddu ridge and down the East Ridge. Classic, no problems and great to introduce a mega-fit but mountain novice to Snowdonia's hills.

Snow down to a fairly low level gave a decent level of interest - made it an absolutely brilliant day in perfect conditions. Not going to bore with you a walk report as there are plenty here already!

Part way up the ridge. Jake had already been to the top at least twice by now.

Great day on Siabod again with wonderful company and wonderful conditions. Who could ask for more?

Perfect day AK. You can probably tell by the lack of walk reports this year I've not exactly covered a great deal of miles, so to go out on a day like this (especially with a newcomer) it's helping get the bug back!

Hopefully back out this weekend to mop up 3 of my remaining 4 unclaimed Welsh hewitts. Fingers crossed for the same conditions. Although I don't think Arenig Fach, Mynydd Graig Goch and Pen y Garn (mid Wales) will be quite as spectacular!
