    Location: Fontainebleau, France

    The unique bouldering mecca that is the 'Foret de Fontainebleau' in France is our destination once again for a spring bouldering trip. As the name suggests the main activity for this trip is bouldering, although the area offers pleasant walking and cycling too. 

    As usual this is one of our 'self-service' meets. So groups of members are organising their transport/accommodation for the trip and then meeting up to boulder together each day. There is a variety of accommodation available including camping, static caravans, gite's and hotels. A group of club members have already got a gite booked in our usual area near Milly-la-foret, and there is camping and static caravans at the nearby La Musardiere campsite

    For more information contact Andy Richards.

  • Sea cliff climbing in Pembrokeshire

    Friday, 3rd May 2019 at 6pm - 5pm Monday, 6th May
    Location: St. Petrox Campsite, St. Petrox, Stackpole, Pembroke, SA71 5EQ

    We are heading to Pembrokshire for some sea cliff climbing on the May Day bank holiday weekend. We will be camping at St Petrox Campsite which is well located for access to the southern Pembrokeshire cliffs. The campsite does not take advance bookings but we've always found they have space. On the plus side by not having to book/pay in advance we can change to a different destination if the weather forecast is no good.


    This is a self service meet so you will need to arrange your own transport, tent, food, etc. It is quite a way to Pembroke so sharing lifts makes a lot of sense. If you can offer a lift share or are looking for a lift send out an email (see the Members area for instructions on sending out emails to the club).

    NB:
     Sea cliff climbing is a serious undertaking and therefore this meet is not recommended for novice climbers.

  • Love the hut weekend

    Friday, 18th October 2019 at 6pm - 5pm Sunday, 20th October
    Location: Dinorwic Mill Cottage, Tai Felin, Brynrefail, Caernarfon, Gwynedd

    Now the hut has been refurbished we want to keep it in top condition. So this will be our maintenance weekend for 2019 where we will show the hut some love and get it ready for the winter. 

    On this special weekend you get to stay at the hut for free on Friday and Saturday nights in return for spending one whole day working on the hut (either the Saturday or the Sunday). Whichever day you are not working on the hut you can enjoy yourself climbing, walking, cycling or just chilling out!

    There are plenty of different jobs to do at the hut and no special skills are required to help out. Although if you do have a particular talent in something like Plumbing, Electrics, Woodwork, etc I'm sure we can put your skills to good use. 

    We plan to give the hut a deep clean on the inside. Outside we'll make sure everything is tidy and trimmed, drainage channels clear, etc. There may also be repairs and project work to be done, more details nearer the time.

    You'll need to bring your own food/drink for the weekend although tea/coffee plus cakes/biscuits will be provided. On Saturday night we'll walk into Llanberis for a curry and pint.

    Please bring with you suitable clothing for doing mucky work (possibly in the cold and wet). And please bring any tools we might need (gardening tools are always useful).

    As with any visit to the club hut please be sure to read our helpful guide to staying at the hut.

    Get in touch with Dave Toach (07703 121591) to book your place in the hut.
