Outside of the Cuillins perhaps
There are 3 main sides to Tryfan. one is proper mountaineers stuff, which I didnt do, one is a nice walk by a stream and very pleasant (I came down that way) and one is the most terrifying scramble you can do where at points one slip is imminent death (I genuinely mean that). I went up that one. I had no idea before I did it what I was in for and would never ever do it again. And any daft twat who jumps adam and eve at the top needs to be sectioned under the mental health act.
