This is a new venue for the club and one with an epic reputation!

The  Climbing

It is up in North wales so expect spectacular views.

Gogarth is known for committing multi-pitches at mid-high grade ranges, all coastal. These are epic and ideal for those so inclined. Please only do these climbs if you are completely confident that you know how to deal with tricky situations on massive climbs – these are committing, self rescue skills I would say are absolutely essential. (we may be able to provide training – do ask if you would like some)

Holyhead is less committing and still has a large range of routes. The place has a really good reputation for good climbing (well, it is north wales!).

Accommodation

I am presently trying to get a reserved spot at the closest campsite (Tyn Rhos Camping, Ravenspoint) Which is about  20 minutes drive from both climbing venues. It has the facilities you would expect from a basic campsite such as hot showers and washing up areas.

NB – I can see some people wanting to stay through till the Sunday to make the most of this.

Tide

For Gogarth, many of the routes need to be times with the tide. We tried to make this at a weekend with tide times that aren’t too unfriendly but early starts may be essential. We recommend checking the details of your climb and the times for both days to work out which would be the best day to do it.

Costs / food / logistics etc…

This will be a pay as you turn up meet, direct to the campsite. The space at the campsite will be pre-booked based on the numbers booked onto this page, so you will need to reserve your place here to get space.

There is no arranged group meal, though a BBQ may be good.

As always we shall set up a facebook group nearer the time to discuss items such as traveling and tent sharing and climbing routes.
