Tryfan (/ˈtrʌvæn/) is a mountain in the Ogwen Valley, Snowdonia, Wales. It forms part of the Glyderau group and is one of the most famous and recognisable peaks in Britain, having a classic pointed shape with rugged crags. At 917.5 metres (3,010 feet) above sea level, it is the fifteenth-highest mountain in Wales. The name ‘Tryfan’ is thought to derive from the intensifying particle try– and the noun ban (‘top, peak’), giving the meaning ‘very high peak’. Tryfan was voted Britain’s favourite mountain by Trail magazine
