North Ridge of Tryfan & Glyderau Scramble

  • Location Conwy
  • Price from £60.00
  • Walking / Hiking
  • Rock Climbing


This challenging day hike and scramble ticks off a section of the Welsh 3000, and takes us across the Glyderau (Glyders); a range of mountains adjacent to Snowdon. Grade scramble: 1 (some use of hands, relatively straight forward route) Distance: 18 km Height gain: 1400m Time: 8-9 hrs Ratio to instructor: 1:4 Note: a scramble is midway between hiking and climbing. In other words, it's hiking with some use of hands to stabilise yourself.


Our route will head straight up the North Ridge of Tryfan. The North Ridge is a Grade 1 scramble, and is a strong start to the day but can be made harder or easier depending on what is preferred (the benefit of being with someone that knows the variations well, like I do). The continuation to Glyder Fach is via Bristly Ridge is a slightly more difficult Grade 1 with challenging sections which are less avoidable than on Tryfan. After Glyder Fach is summited, then we continue to complete the Glderau 3000ft peaks with Glyder Fawr, Y Garn and Elidir Fawr.

This adventure is perfect for individuals and small groups, and can be tailored for:
