Tryfan is a mountain in the Ogwen Valley, Snowdonia, North 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 m (3,010 ft) above sea level it is the fifteenth highest mountain in Wales.
The name “Tryfan” is derived from its historical 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 a beautiful collection and jumble of rocks strewn across its face. Find your way up to the summit. The most climbed route and easiest is finding the route up its North face on a grade 1 scramble.
Test your self at the top by jumping between two huge upright stones aptly named Adam and Eve.
Best time to go is in the summer and introduce your self to the technique of scrambling.
A fantastic day out in the summer time.
