|Perfect conditions early and late. Rained for a few mintues near summit. Pretty cold too. Had to break out the gloves.|
For a little harder variation of N. Ridge, stay on ridge and climb the North Tower rather than traversing around it on the left (East). Is a little more difficult and more exposed.
Lots of sheep crap everywhere below summit block.

|Attic Tony||Route Climbed: North Ridge, return via the Glyders and Y Garn Date Climbed: 16th July 2003|
|A very enjoyable scramble to the top of Tryfan, where I saw several people do the famous jump between Adam and Eve (but decided to give it a miss myself). Ended up having great weather for the whole walk, despite the forecast threatening rain in the afternoon. |
I will definitely be back (and might even try that jump next time!).

|Grant Mockler||Route Climbed: North Ridge Date Climbed: 5th July 2003|
|Started up usual route from A5 and gained ridge. Made various route changes to climb vertical slabs so making some sections a grade 2/3 scramble. Weather was overcast but clouds above the peak. One of my mates that had never climbed Tryfan before was amazed to see a dog at the top....but when he was shown the dog rock boots and harness he understood how the dog got to the top. Dog had also carried owner.|

|Andy Kennedy||Route Climbed: East Face Date Climbed: 22 October 2002|
|A fine clear mild day to climb one of the most shapely peaks in the UK. Bored with the straight forward scramble up to Heather Terrace myself and chris decided it would be fun too attack a waterfall line! Fun it was and pretty wet too! The east face scaled by an easy dry gully led to the summit and fine views over north wales. Probably the most fun peak in the uk for the shear diversity of routes and several different levels of climbing. Well worth a trip.|

|starwasp||Route Climbed: Traverse starting on North Ridge from Milestone Buttress Date Climbed: 30th September 2002|
|First time in Snowdonia....thought we'd give it a go. Wife in tow, we started what turned out to be c3,000 ft of scrambling. Some exposure, and windy on top. Exited via the south ridge to the col and then down by the lake path to the road. North ridge route is committing. It's easier to go on than retreat.|

|Gui Lemmens||Route Climbed: traversée Date Climbed: 1981|
|I climbed Tryfan in +/- 1981, the year of the Falkland war. I was in the region for one week. I made the traversée of tryfan and some other peaks. |
It's a nice region with, in that time, lots of peace and so quiet. I liked it !
I made a solo walk in snowdonia park and the region around Tryfan. It was realy a solo walk. I didn't see anyone during the hole week.
