Yesterday (friday) I was out on the North Ridge of Tryfan scrambling in the cloud! The great thing about this route is you can pick your lines anywhere between scrambling grades 1-3 which I did. Over the years I must have been up here 25 plus times & never once done it by the same route. Always good fun. It was pretty claggy today & the cloud base was around the 500-600m mark. Sporadic snow cover from around 800m but not neve, just soft melting stuff. No ice anywhere to be seen. Only came across 2 other people on the whole mountain which is very rare for Tryfan.
On the way back to the car I stopped to solo a couple of routes on Tryfan Fach which is always fun in big muddy boots!
Winter proper is still unfortunately eluding us here in N.Wales.
