Adam and Eve
Gaining the freedom of Tryfan
Tryfan (Tri-van - Three Tops) is one of the most famous and recognisable peaks in Britain, having a classic pointed shape with rugged crags. It is one of the very few mountains in Great Britain, apart from the Cuillin of Skye, to require the use of hands (as well as feet) on the ascent.

The summit of Tryfan is famous for the twin monoliths of Adam and Eve, a pair of rocks some three metres high and separated by 1.2 metres. The rocks are visible from the Ogwen valley, from where they resemble two human figures.
