#120 - Around Tryfan

My intentions of pottering around the mountains of Snowdonia National Park were scuppered from the start. The forecast from the Mountain Weather Information Service was pretty damning; "Severe gales will make for very difficult conditions on the hills. Any mobility likely to be tortuous in places. Significant wind chill."

The plan was for my mate Richard to introduce me to some scrambling, something I had always been wary of due to not being particularly enamoured with sheer drops! The gales put paid to that, though, and the ridges were off limits.

Despite the attrocious weather we did manage a walk worthy of the log book.
