Tryfan Bach to Back

Updated: Apr 19, 2019

I took the Fuji X100T out again, this time on a little climbing session with Ben on Tryfan Bach in the Ogwen Valley, Wales.

To make an early start on the rock, we got there the night before and pulled up in one of the many lay-bys along the A5, bedding down amongst the other campervans.

We woke up in the shadows of Tryfan with the promise of an amazing sunrise on the cards.

Walking up towards Llyn Idwal, the sky started to alight with purples and reds, making me wish I'd brought my full Nikon gear.

Making most of what we had, we propped the Fuji on the Gorillapod and snapped the amazing scene opening up in front of us.

Back at the van, we cooked up some breakfast and headed out towards the climbing routes on Tryfan Bach, taking a panorama of Tryfan and it's smaller twin we were aiming to tackle.



At the base of the climbs, we roped up and picked an easy crack to lead us to the top, taking a couple of snaps when it was safe to do so.








At the top we made the short walk back to the van and decided on heading back to Yorkshire, beating the midweek rush hour traffic. It was clear Ben had had a great time from the smiles and I was really proud of him, on his first real rock climb.


Next week, I'm heading to Slovenia to tackle their highest mountain Triglav, so was glad of the climbing refresher with Ben.
