Tryfan in the Drizzle

It’s been a while since I’ve been in the hills, and even longer since I’ve been there with other people. It was therefore nice to get out with the ‘Aber Sport & Exercise Science’ crew for a scramble up Tryfan on Wednesday. It had been arranged for a while and I’d booked a day off...
