From the sneck after Ben Avon. Ice axe reassuring on the snow. Clear blue sky gave brilliant views and tan from the snow. Descended south east from Chap a Chleirich down easy snow slopes as the plod to the south top in the soft snow would have been hard work. Cycled back to Keilock. A great day out.mindlessflogger22/03/2016
