Set high up on the North aspect of Snowdon, this is one of the more reliable Welsh winter climbing venues. The classic gully "Central Trinity" will often be in condition long after the snow and ice have melted from the rest of Wales.
Approach is normally from the Pen y Pass car park, up either the Miner's track or the Pyg track. As these paths start to get steeper and zig-zag near the top, turn off left (SW) to a small Llyn, near the base of the climbs. From here easy snow slopes/gullies lead to the spider.
