Met and married Tobyjug thanks to OD so no longer need the website as plenty of walking with two other clubs we are members of.

Tryfan can be very hard if you go the wrong way..... One of the problems is that there is no easy to follow path. If they are reasonably fit, going up via Bwlch Tryfan should be achievable but it is not as interesting as the scrambling routes. You do have to watch where you are putting your feet though.

Dave,TC'so advice is good. I'd plan a route out and back (Devil's Kitchen is awful on tired legs!), go with someone who's done it before, check the weather forecast and adjust accordingly and make sure at least one of your party is prepared to help someone who might have difficulty (eg carrying an extra rucksack on an exposed bit). That said,good luck ��

I've done Tryfan by the North ridge several times. It's a great route and on a nice clear day it's fairly straight forward picking your way up the ridge. You can make your route as easy or as difficult as you like though. There are many different options availiable once you hit the scrambling and there is a lot of it . It's a different story if the weather is poor though. The rock will become incredibly slippy and route finding can be problamatic. There have been a couple of walking fatalaties on Tryfan this year. So like all the Welsh Mountains it definetly deserves respect and go prepared for anything or is that everything.......

I would highly recommend the north ridge, although navigating can be difficult there are usually people who have done it before who can give you pointers. The general idea is to keep going up but don't climb yourself into trouble. If you find yourself faced with only a hard climb ahead and not too confident it's probably best to skirt round and find an easier route, even if it means a little downclimb. It's a fabulous mountain to summit and gives you a real sense of achievement.

Don't go up anything you wouldn't want to go back down

How hard can Tryfan be? Very if you are wearing diving boots and carrying a fridge.

A fit person should be able to manage it quite easily though, particularly if it remains dry.

Dave.: Hi. If you haven't already seen this. Check it out. Gives you a good idea what to expect. The trail vid is pretty good too. If you have good conditions and the energy. Tryfan North ridge, Glyders via Bristly Ridge and down via Devils Kitchen is a classic circuit. I doubt I'll be able to make that weekend, but if I do happen to be in Wales I'll definitely be up for it. Have a great day and don't forget to get your pics on the cannon stone

I've had the advise never go down the north side that where and how the fatalities are happening. Dave i'm up and doing it on 15th with some friends but i'm not leading the route - hoping for some good weather

Hi Dave
I did it just just after a huge downpour which made coming down very slippy and a few memorable bum bruises bagged. Love to do it again in the dry (along with crib goch without the snow). Stay safe and enjoy
