Tryfan is a mountain in Snowdonia, in North Wales. It forms part of the Glyderau group, and is one of the most famous and recognisable mountains in Britain. With it's classic pointed shape and rugged crags, it stands 917.5 metres above sea level and is the fifteenth highest mountain in Wales.
The most famous route up is the 'heather terrace', which you can see cutting across the face of the mountains in my painting, right to left heading up. The walk up Tryfan is quite challenging, although possible for most walkers of reasonable fitness, as there is no actual climbing required, albeit a little scrambbling is required in places. Tryfan is my favorrite mountain in Snowdonia to paint.
