Cwm Cneifion & Clogwyn Du 2010.

Jonah allowed himself to be led astray again by the infamous MikeB:

Jonah and I climbed Pillar Chimney today on Clogwyn Ddu. Great fun. The main pitch was lean with thin ice and verglass, but with reasonable gear. Very tight squeeze chimney thoughout and it went with a combination of hooking, torquing, stein pulls (!), ice placements, heel and toe boot cams (!), knee jams and arm bars! Falling would have broken limbs for sure. Top pitch was plated in ice and was a dream.
