Tryfan is a mountain in Snowdonia, in the Ogwen Valley. Its classic pointed shape with rough crags makes it one of the most recognizable and famous peaks in Britain.

Snowdonia offers endless possibilities is perfect if you are looking for an exciting scramble or climb. Its challenging terrain, mountains and spectacular views make it a top destination for adventure lovers in the UK.

Today I invite you to join me and climb the North Ridge of Tryfan, one of the classic scrambling routes to the top of this mountain.

Scrambling is in between hiking and climbing, so you will need hands, feet and above all, a cool head for heights! However, the North Ridge isn’t as thrilling as Crib Goch. Actually, this is an ideal ‘taster’ if you are planning to attempt that scramble in the future.

The North Ridge follows a clear line along a broad ridge directly to the summit, where we find the twin monoliths of Eve and Adam. Although the bridge is broad, this Grade 1 scrambling is really interesting and varied. Along the way, we will go from short steep pitches with handholds to easy walking.

Also, nearby we find the equally classic Bristly Ridge and Y Gribin. Both are superb ways to gain the summit of Glyder Fawr (big) and Glyder Fach (little). They offer a classic horseshoe walk, starting and finishing at Ogwen Cottage. And I can also take you there!

Please note that in case of poor weather and to preserve your safety I may offer alternative routes.

Contact me if you want to join me for the North Ridge of Tryfan scramble! I will be happy to guide you up there.

And if you are looking for a more exciting scramble, you can check the Snowdon Horseshoe via Crib Goch scramble that I also guide.
