Tryfan and Bristly Ridge

This post features a walk that we did a few months ago, but as I wasn't updating my blog at the time, thought I would slip it in now, as it was such a good one. Tryfan is up there as one of our absolute favourite mountains, once parked up you are pretty much straight on to the North Ridge, and it is one of the best scrambles, making it as difficult or easy as you want. Bring into this clambering up the Cannon Rock, and then Adam and Eve on the top, it is a mountain that has everything. From here we descended and then scrambled up Bristly Ridge onto the Glyders, again a superb scramble with a few airy moves!! For this walk we were joined by friends John Worrall and Shane Wilkinson.. A great day, and some great memories looking through the pictures this evening.... hope you enjoy
