Tryfan from the A5 - cold and rainy Summer's day! ...


A great rock peak south of the A5 with two main climbing crags; the East Face and the Milestone Buttress. The routes on the East Face can be finished with a scramble to the summit, there you'll have to jump the gap between the two monolithic summit boulders, Adam and Eve - particularly scary if at all wet and slippery.

Getting There 

South of the A5, from Capel Curig to Bethesda - south side, the obvious three pronged (Tryfan means "Three Peaks" in Welsh) rock peak.

Gashed Crag 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  Europe : United Kingdom : ... : East Face
A fun excursion up the buttress with a real grunter of a crux. Those old dudes loved their chimneys. There's some exposure too on the upper section. Goes okay in the rain.1) 100ft 5.4. Up a groove and blocks to a big grassy ledge.2) 80ft 5.4. Up a steep wall beneath The Gash, go right and belay.3) 60ft 5.6. Grunt your way up the chimney (crux) - perhaps removing your pack. Then head up a wall to the crest of the ridge above The Gash.4) 120ft 5.0. Follow the crest of the ridge in a great position...[more]   Browse More Classics in International

My sister Gillian climbed Tryfan barefoot when we visited in 1976. Pretty wild.
