Adam and Eve, Tryfan-Arguably the most iconic of all Welsh mountains, Tryfan at a height of 917 meters rises out of the Ogwen Valley with a masterful presence which enchants the many thousands of people who make the annual pilgrimage to climb Wales most majestic of all mountains. Her legendry two obelisk like summit pillars and affectionately known as Adam and Eve promotes Tryfan to one of the most unique mountains anywhere in the world. Those climbers with nerves of steel and a sure foot have made the death defying leap between the two pillars as a final mark of their respect and conquest of the mountain. For some the lure of scaling one of the two pillars and making the seemingly short leap across to the other proves too irresistible. A word of warning would be remiss, if it wasn’t pointed out to any budding jumper that over time both tops of Adam and Even have become extremely shiny and in wet and freezing conditions their surface is more akin to ice and provide little or no traction to even the very best of climbing boots. If one chooses to ignore this sound advice in these prevailing conditions, then one should also acquaint themselves of the precipitous drop that awaits them on the eastern side should their footing fail them!
