Wales' greatest and craggiest peak? It's certainly eye-catching. There are no entirely hands-free ways up Tryfan, but if you're into scrambling then there's nowhere better.
The mountain also offers plenty of old-school rock climbing, with long easy mountaineering routes, in a spectacular setting. The clean rock is almost always climbable, even in the wet. Long multi-pitch routes to 190 metres.
You really can't miss it, as you travel from the road from Capel Curig.
