About the Event

ATTENTION! You must have a good head for heights for this hike. The hike consists of a lengthy horizontal scramble with exposed areas.

If that sounds like good fun to you, then read on :-)


Located in the Ogwen Valley of Snowdonia National Park in North Wales, Tryfan is considered one of Britain’s best mountains. With a height of 917 m, it also ranks as the 15th highest mountain in Britain.

Many suggest that it’s the only mountain in Wales that you cannot climb without using your hands.

The name Tryfan translates to ‘three rocks’ deriving from ‘Tri-faen’. Due to its shape, which looks like the fin of a shark, the mountain is very photogenic.

Climbing Tryfan will feel like a fine line between hiking and mountaineering. Even though it’s classed as the easiest grade scramble (Grade 1), I would treat it with respect.

Glyder Fach and Glyder Fawr will take us over more steep climbs getting us all the way up to 1001 metres!

If the time allows we will add one more peak, Y Garn, before heading down to the lakes where we camp for the night.


Length 13.4 km

Distance 7 hours

Elevation gain 1,498 m

We will decide on which hike or activity we will do on the second day to take into account the weather and how much people struggled.
