I did this trail a few years back but started with the North ridge scramble of Tryfan then ascended bristly ridge before walking the remainder of the glyders. If you like scrambling this is great fun.

Fantastic hike, agree with prior comments that locating the trail in poor visibility is tough.

Great place, crazy rock formations but care needed in poor visibility, very easy to lose the trail.
