Climbing trip to North Wales:
Like last year, we’re booked in to the Bowline MC club hut in Dinorwig Mill Cottage, close to Llanberis with its selection of pubs and facilities/shops and really convenient for the slate quarries. It’s a nice hut (partly refurbished last summer), and sleeps 12 so if more than that want to come we’ll have to try camping (there are spaces outside the hut). The cost will be £10 per person per night, including all the heating costs etc, and use of the fully equipped kitchen Depending on the weather Wales in the winter can offer a wide range of climbing, from the Llanberis pass mountain routes to bolted slate or N-coast sport routes. Theres also the possibility of good winter routes (if the weather goes cold soon) or spectacular winter mountain walking. If the weather turns really bad you can retreat to Pete’s Eats in Llanberis or the Beacon wall, just outside, for monster 20m overhangs. If you want to come, please let me know: i) where and when you want to leave from on the Friday evening and ii) whether you have a car, and if so how many passengers you can take.
As we’ve limited spaces early replies will get bed spaces (unless they really -want- to camp).
