Went hoping for winter conditions but sadly it was a summer scramble with a dust of snow and some ice to keep you focused but definitely not ice axe and crampon territory. We moved together for the experience with Robby leading for the majority of the time.

Not exactly Summer conditions but didn't need ice axe or crampons.

Up Tryfan North Ridge, Bristly Ridge & down Y Gribin. Bristly felt more like solid grade 2 at a couple of points. Almost pulled out a large section of rock at the top of the gully - watch out for this.

The gully we climbed (dexter i think) was full of loose rock and mud possibly from a recent collapse. A muddy slot at the top was avoided using a dirty and difficult chimney to the right.

No idea if we took 'the' line at the beginning. But felt pretty hard for a grade 1 and we came across loads of polish and crampon scratches half way up, getting easier at this point too. Was quite misty!

ssnow157 26/May/14 -

Can't work out what line we took as first part wasn't that polished and felt a bit harder than a grade 1 to me, passed an abseil rig?

Still unclear about which gully is the 'correct' route. Ashton describes an ascent via sinister gully after crossing a walk, but the accepted route appears to be via a gully further to the right. This is very steep for a grade one and extremely loose a quite dangerous if you stray into three gully bed higher up to avoid the exposure. Higher up it eases considerably and becomes more of a classic ridge scramble reminiscent of Aonach Eagach with atmosphere to match, especially in the awesome great pinnacle gap.

Mayaculpa 19/Apr/14 Solo

climbed right gully, down the scree and back up left gully. Right is a bit tougher but more atmospheric.

bit bemused how to log this, well snowed up and rocks a bit icy, but ground wasnt frozen and snow unconsolidated, not in summer condition but not full winter either, an exciting scramble in snow rather than with axes and crampons

brilliant ridge scramble, better than crib goch? possibly. stayed as true to the crest of the ridge as possible, more like a grade 3 scrable. but all the dificulties can be easilly avoided if you wish.

Amazing Day, Started off at the car park not far from tryfan east face. Before heading along heather terrace. Then onto bristly ridge, first taking on little gully as the wweather was too bad to think about sinister gully. Then negotiating our way over the great pinacles. Then onto the plateaud summit. We just managed to see the cantilever stone but the wind was so strong attempting it would of been really daft. Then a bit of map reading to find our way off as visibility was really bad. And down scree back to heather terrace.

Our first real scramble. Should this be the one to gauge all others by? the gully was the most difficult section but was worth the effort. Want to do this one again soon. Weather held out for us until we began the descent via Y Gribin, when we got a little damp.

My first time on bristly ridge. It was raining cats and dogs so the rock was really greasy. In a thick mist we could barely see our own noses. Stood atop of the rock spires was awe inspiring. being stood atop a couple of square foot of rock, looking down into the mist, who knew how far below the floor was?
