Course Description

Rising from the Ogwen valley to 3,020 feet (915 metres), Tryfan looks majestic. The famous north ridge rises from the valley to the twin pillars of Adam and Eve and this is our chosen route.

Tradition says that upon first climbing Tryfan, you must jump from one pillar to the other. Down on the ground, this wouldn’t be a problem, but 3000 feet up and the cliffs of the East face next to you, it’s a different prospect. Don’t worry it’s not obligatory.

We make our way up the classic ridge, taking care over the rocky broken ground providing endless challenge and changing views. George Borrow, in his classic book, “Wild Wales”, described Tryfan as the “…second of the hills which stood on the left”! The poor man clearly never experienced the North ridge!

After enjoying the summit views, we’ll descend the slightly easier south ridge before descending by either Cwm Tryfan or Cwm Bochlwyd, the choice is ours on the day.

Afterwards, driving down the Ogwen valley will never be the same as you say “I’ve climbed that!”.
