From the W, parking at end of minor rd. Pillar has the vestige of a Welsh red dragon stencil on one face and some Welsh language grafitti on another (something about seeing rain). Minor damage to one top corner; no top cap or plug; RHS sight hole open. Sighted 5m W of summit rocks. Extensive panorama.

Climbed easily from NW to super summit then return due west on a useful track and easily back to the car.

My 111th logged visit and a very appropriate date to reach the number indeed. I only missed 11:11 by ten minutes and probably would have made it too, if it wasn't for strong winds hindering me and also stopping to read the information panel. I began and ended the day's walk at Bontnewydd, diverting on the way down to take in the FBM at Uwchlaw'r Farm (TP0520).

I took the No. 81 bus from Caernarfon (Carmel bus) to Rhosgadfan. I got off a bit too early and had to walk through the village before getting to the base of Moel Tryfan itself. The mount was still covered in deep snow and there was a really strong & cold wind blowing the snow around. However even under these conditions I found the view to be excellent. I made my way back down into the village and walked the 2 miles back into Bontnewydd to get my bus.

No plug. Public. Access Land. Trig amongst rocks on sharp craggy top of grassy hill. Long-abandoned 'Dr Who' slate quarry on south east side. Good walk up from Waunfawr station, by public footpath round Moel Smytho & across open moor.

We took the direct footpath to the top. Nice jagged top to the otherwise rounded hill. A large hole nearby from old slate workings and also associated slate tips added interest.

vgc, no cap or plug, TP on fine rocky outcrop at summit - fine view. SSSI for geomorph reasons - plaque at summit says why.

Excellent location, with Panoramic views over Anglesey and Caernarvon Bay, today we where even able to see Ireland and the Isle of Mann! Pillar in good condition, shows signs of being painted white but it now faded. The Plug is missing.

Great spot. Looks so ordinary from the road, but the summit is one of the sharpest in Wales. Trig is halfway up the tor on a grassy plateau surrounded by pinnacles and gullies. Nearby is a very familiar looking quarry off fondly remembered telly. However the Daleks have been replaced by burnt out cars. A lot of bad lads on Skaro. When I got home, found the scumbags had been round and was minus quite a bit of gear.

TP on fine rocky outcrop at summit - fine view - 'Tryfan' presumably named after profile from W due to slate spoil heaps
