Picture: The view from the North Ridge looking down from around halfway
For anyone attempting this via the North face you need to be able to scramble and have a head for exposure and heights as there has been numerous tragedies on this mountain. Once you commit yourself to the North Face there is no going back in essence as it is a one way route. It should also be noted that as many people have climbed this, the rock has become smooth over the years and the grips can be challenging. This mountain is called 'the helicopter mountain' amongst the hill walking community in Wales because of the North Ridge. There is an alternative and steep way to the west of the North Ridge

Wonderful Scramble to summit
by Fergalh 15 Nov 2020
First of six peak walk. Parked below at one of the numerous car parking spaces along the road beside Llyn Ogwen. I headed up the famous North face of Tryfan to the summit. This is a wonderful scramble for anyone who has ever done it. The summit is marked by the Adam and Eve Stones whereby some people attempt to jump from one to the other (jumping that short hop is not the problem in my view, it is the stopping afterwards!). This is not recommended in my view. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/B1977/comment/21370/
