Grade 1/2. Climbs the gully to the right of the buttress. Overcome a high shelf (pile of stones at its base makes it easier) and go into the damp gully. Climb it on the left side; easy but quite sustained, to emerge at the top of the buttress.

We cowered in the van from the hail and rain but decided it wasn't going to stop, so we started up the gulley which was actually a big waterfall! 05/Sep/13 2nd

Started in the afternoon. Top of Tryfan in just over 1hr and a half from the road. Did rest of the North ridge, Bristly ridge and descended by Y Gribin. One of my favourite scrambling combos.
