Tryfan, United Kingdom


Tryfan is a mountain in the Ogwen Valley, Snowdonia, Wales. It forms part of the Glyderau group, and is one of the most famous and recognisable peaks in Britain, having a classic pointed shape with rugged crags. At 917.5 metres (3,010 feet) above sea level it is the 15th highest mountain in Wales. The name “Tryfan” is derived from the Welsh name of “Tri-faen”. “Tri” meaning three and “faen” meaning rocks which makes reference to the 3 rocky humps seen on the mountain’s summit.

Tryfan is said to be the final resting-place of  Sir Bedivere (Bedwyr) of Arthurian legend.

The most famous route up Tryfan is the North Ridge, a grade one scramble. Seek advice before venturing  up Tryfan.There are plenty of experieced walkers /climbers who will share their knowledge.

Also visit the Snowdonia National Park website.

The pictures show the route to the west of the mountain which is mostly path and a small amount of scramble to the top.This is not the North ridge route.

I have attached a Trail Magazine video in relation to the North Ridge ascent. If in any doubt seek advice from experienced people.
