Welcome back to Snowdonia.
We will be near a wide range of options including climbing and other activities.
Bouldering: We shall be near the RAC boulders, this can be a good way to stay warm in November. For info on RAC boulders: https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=1634#maps
Rope climbing: It’s snowdonia! There are so many options for everyone. All welcome from those with some experience to those smashing top level grades.
We are staying at the Anabasis Hut in Snowdonia, Just by Capel Curig . It is a classic hut within a farm, with 3 bunk rooms, kitchen/dining area. There is also access to a washroom. To find out more about the hut, visit their site: http://www.anabasismountaineering.org.uk/hut.html
And here is a link to useful information prior to the weekend such as directions and some requests for visitors from the owner: http://www.anabasismountaineering.org.uk/Hut_user_info.pdf
There are a number of guide books for the area, the Rockfax one is fairly popular and has a range of crags to choose from.
The Crags in Snowdonia vary greatly in their from the woodlands around Tremadog, to the weather beaten, Llanberis pass where trees are almost non-existant. Across the region centuries of felling for timber and heavy grazing have left their mark on the landscape, and efforts are now being made to help it regenerate. The climbing community has worked with local groups to help remove non-native trees and ivy as well as litter at Tremadog. We can help by taking litter home (even if it’s not ours), taking care not to damage trees when setting up abseils, keeping to established paths, and avoiding the removal of vegetation including moss and lichen. Temporary or permanent restrictions may also be in place to protect nesting birds or rare fauna, these are all published on the BMC regional access database.
Please bring all your regular climbing gear such as ropes, helmet etc… You will also need your own bedding for the hut as well and LOTS of warm clothing and layers for being outside.
There will be a group meal on the Saturday night at the hut (included in the cost) volunteer kitchen assistants always welcomed! There will also be the club breakfast stash available in the mornings (porridge with all sorts of sugary things to add)
