Description

Known as the ‘knife-edged’ arête, climbing Crib Goch via the Tryfan North Ridge is a great way to spend a weekend scrambling!

Situated in the northeastern portion of the stunningly scenic Snowdonia National Park, Crib Goch is composed of several ridges ranging in difficulty from class 1 to class 3.

The highest point of the ridge reaches 923 meters (3,028 feet) in elevation and boasts spectacular views out over the rest of the national park.

Our adventure begins after we meet up and head to the trailhead. From here, we will make our hiking approach to the peak and ascend via the normal route as a warm up.

This gives us a chance to go over and practice our scrambling skills before we take on the tough Tryfan North Ridge the following day.

The next day is the highlight of the trip. Getting an early start, we will head up via the much more technically challenging, but incredibly scenic, Tryfan North Ridge and on to Bristly Ridge before heading around to Glyder Fach and completing the Bochlwyd Horseshoe.

While you do not need to be a scrambling expert to enjoy the trip, some scrambling and hillwalking experience is necessary.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this scenic and exciting 2-day Crib Goch scrambling trip on the Tryfan North Ridge!

About the guide

guide profile img

I hold a Mountaineering Instructor Certificate (MIC). I am fully qualified to guide and instruct all aspects of mountaineering and climbing in the UK throughout the year. Also, I am a full member of the Mountain Training Association (MTA) and the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI).

I love climbing and this passion has taken me all over the world, even to the summit of Mount Everest. I have also climbed in the Andes, as well as in the Alps, Norway and Canada. I reached the summit of Mount Everest on May 2001, as a member of the RAF Mountain Rescue Service Everest North Ridge expedition.

I first started mountaineering in Scotland with the RAF Mountain Rescue Service, over 20 years ago. Since then, I haven't stopped climbing and exploring new mountains in the UK and abroad. I have been a RAF Mountain Rescue Team Leader and also the Chief Instructor for 5 years. I have also climbed all the Munros, the Scottish peaks above 3000 feet.

I love climbing around North Wales and the rest of the UK. We have so many amazing climbing and scrambling spots to discover in this area! I enjoy taking my clients there for rock climbing, scrambling and mountain skills courses or for a guided day out.

We can set up a program according to your level and wishes. Contact me and we can start planning your next mountain adventure right away!
