The south ridge of Tryfan is the last ascent of the Glyderau range on the northbound traverse before the long drop to the A5. Tryfan, while just scraping over the 3,000 feet mark, is a magnificent mountain and is one of the most famous and recognisable peaks in Britain, having a classic pointed shape with rugged crags. The ascent of the north ridge is among the finest scrambling days possible anywhere in the UK. The summit is marked by two large blocks - Adam and Eve. These are clearly visible from the A5 to the east of the mountain.
