Tryfan Scramble

Tryfan is a 5-7hr mountain day. The North Ridge ascent is a grade 1 scramble, with the rock feature “cannon “ to climb. Once on the summit it’s the well-known Adam & Eve jump, or you can simply sit. We’ll finish the day with a decent via the South Ridge to complete an amazing day summiting Snowdonia’s iconic peak.

Activity Meeting Time

8.45 to 9am

Please give yourself plenty of time to get to the meeting point.

Meeting Point

John, your instructor for the day, will meet you in the Ogwen valley (A5 road), by the Ogwen Snack Bar where there is a car park.

Address: Ogwen Snack Bar, Nant Ffrancon LL57 3LZ


The North Ridge route is an excellent scramble and you’ll be expertly guided by John, your qualified instructor. It wont be a race to the top, but to enjoy the experience  you will need to be a reasonably active and agile person, using your hands and body, to navigate up the route.

What should I wear / bring with me for the activity ?

We provide helmets and other activity equipment that may be needed for the mountain scramble.

Below is a list of items to bring with you, in order to remain warm and comfortable during the activity.

  • Good, comfortable mountain footwear with grip and a cleated sole and good ankle support are essential.
  • Waterproof jacket and over-trousers.
  • Warm, dry walking clothing. Unsuitable clothing includes Jeans or cotton tracksuit bottoms and cotton t-shirts (cotton is a poor insulating fabric and when wet it takes a long time to dry, which can lead to a rapid loss of body heat as well as being uncomfortable).
  • A number of thin layers are better than one thick/ heavy jumper. We suggest a fleece for extra warmth especially when we stop on the hills for lunch.
  • Hat and gloves (even in summer – any wind chill on the mountain tops will lead to cooler temperatures).
  • Sunglasses, sun cream.
  • Hot or cold drinks (i.e. a minimum of 2 litres of water).
  • Plenty of food and drink for lunch and snacks.
  • A rucksack large enough to carry it all in (20-30 litres), ideally with a waterproof liner.
  • Any medication you need.
  • Thermos flask. We recommend bringing warm drinks with you, as even on sunny days it can occasionally feel cooler, especially on the summits of the higher-level mountain walks.
