/ descending Heather Terrace
It's an easy enough walk, over the usual boulders etc. Can't recall doing it in winter tho, so sorry if that's what you are looking for.
just never been on it and fancied something a little different than the usual descent routes that I've done many times.
You can also descend the west face easily.
which is the most enjoyable?
The descent from the lower end of the Heather Terrace is a short, simple open gully. If you've parked at Gwern y Gof Uchaf, or whatever it's called, that's the way to go. If you descend the west side you'll have a much longer trek back.
I was a lot leaner and fitter a couple of years back and we did the adam and eve to the chippy in Bethesda in one hour dead! Summer though, don't be trying to beat that in present conditions! Enjoy, I always enjoy a day on Tryfan :-)
providing you miss the crags. Not a route for poor conditions IMO.

They are pretty easy to miss and It's a very fast descent, especially in winter.
If so it's an easy enough walk with good views of the East Face and of Cwm Tryfan. Towards the end you either drop down a scree run to Cwm Tryfan, or continue a bit further to a path that drops down the same direction through a small canyon/gash in a little crag.
