Mountain Walk
Cerdded yn y Mynyddoedd


tryfan, snowdonia
Name : Tryfan Meaning : Pointed Peak Height : 3002 ft / 915 m
Starting Point : The A5 - Idwal Cottage Youth Hostel at the western end of Llyn Ogwen, GR 650603. Large car park. Fee payable.
Distance : 3 miles Ascent : 2007 ft / 612 m Estimated Time : 2 - 4 hours

Route : From the car park take the stone path, which has been laid to prevent further erosion, south-east towards Tryfan. Where this path turns sharply to the right (south-west) towards Llyn Idwal, carry straight on over grassy, stony ground and climb to Llyn Bochlwyd on another pitched path. Cross Nant Bochlwyd - the stream which flows from the llyn (lake) towards the A5 - and follow the clear path above the llyn to the south-south-east. Once past the end of the llyn, the path turns south-east once more and starts to climb a rocky slope to the col (Bwlch Tryfan) where there is a stone wall. From here turn northwards (left). You will see the high rocky outcrop of Tryfan's far South Peak ahead of you. Trend left to avoid it and scramble over the rocks and boulders to the summit of Tryfan itself. The two monoliths on the summit - known as Adam and Eve - are a feature that is unique in the mountains of Britain.

Remember : Always take a map and compass with you.
Cofiwch : Ewch â map a chwmpawd hefo chi bob tro.
