Welcome to Nature’s playground!

Tryfan is the only mountain in the UK that cannot be climbed via any approach without the use of your hands, at least at some point, depending on which route you take.

We will be taking on the famous North Face of Tryfan, with what is considered by the majority of people to be the best grade 1 scrambling route in Britain and was voted Britain’s favourite mountain by Trail magazine.

Situated in the picturesque Ogwen Valley, in Snowdonia and part of the Glyderau mountain range, there is no more distinctive and therefore easily recognisable mountain on these shores than Tryfan with it’s classic rugged crags reminiscent of a mighty sleeping dragon or dinosaur from ages past, frozen in time.

On the way up we’ll pass the Canon Stone, a large distinctive shaped rock, that juts out at 45 degrees, giving anyone who fancies, a memorable and boastful photo moment!

Summiting Tryfan we’ll see the two boulders known as Adam and Eve, which in the right conditions, can be leapt between, again giving another unique and even more fantastic photo for the ages… and well as being bestowed the honour of  “The Freedom of Tryfan”.

After taking in the views and having a short break, we’ll continue our ascent over the Glyders and descend over Y Cribin for what is a full on mountain scrambling day, which is almost certainly going to rank as one of your best and most memorable days of adventure!
