A day on Tryfan with Dave (assisted in parts by Luke). Parked on the A5 near Milestone Buttress. Dull cool day, summits intermittently in cloud. Followed North Ridge to summit of Tryfan.

From Tryfanrb18/07/2014
3rd Summit of the day on an epic adventure from Capel Curig to the Pen Y Gwyrd hotel exploring all the Glyder hills. From Capel Curig I took the ridge rising to Gallt Yr Ogof, Y Foel Goch and then dropped down onto the Miner's track leading to the Heather terrace and then scrambled up to this rocky tor, exploring both the North and South outcrops. The weather that was fine was beginning to close in and dark clouds and then rain followed not long after reaching the summit. I continued on to climb Tryvan just as it started to pour down. Great views from the col between Tryvan summit and Tryvan Far South peak.Dazingdale07/07/2014
