COVID 19 Advice for Meet Participants

Fronwydyr Meet
8 Oct 2021 to 10 Oct 2021

A trip to the hut for weekend mountain activities.

• Climbing
The Llanberis pass is one of the most rock-climbing valleys with amazing crags and rock climbs of every grade and style.

• Scramble/hiking
Crib Goch-it’s an exposed grade 1 scramble. It’s by far tougher than all the other main routes up Snowdon. The NE ridge up Crib Goch is the toughest approach, with the usual PYG track approach being next. The next hardest routes would be Y Gribin and then Y Lliwedd
The Watkin Path- it’s easier than Crib Goch. However, the final section of this path is considered to be 2nd toughest. It’s also physically demanding – with more ascent than any other direct ascent.
The South Ridge Route- It’s the hardest as it is longer and does involve a quieter path with some sections of scrambling and exposure on Bwlch Main. This scrambling isn’t as hard as the inconvenience.

• Walks
If you don’t want to climb or scramble, or just want something to unwind after climbing, then walk to Llanberis’ Waterfall – Ceunant Mawris is ideal. It's well-hidden down a country lane near the Llanberis Path. Also a quick stroll along the lakeside you will see the sculpture of a 6-metre-high sword- Llafn y Cewri (Blade of the Giants) which is located next to Llyn Padarn.

Ice Climbing, Italy
5 Feb 2022 to 13 Feb 2022

It's back! (We hope)

Our now annual ice climbing meet to some part of the world with cold temperatures and waterfalls.

Cogne in the Italian Alps is the destination for 2022. It's one of the world's premier ice climbing destinations with fairly reliable ice and a great range of routes of all grades and lengths.

We've booked a couple of Airbnbs in Cogne that accommodate 10 people in total. Cost will be roughly £20 per person per night.

To secure your place you need to sign up and pay a deposit of £50.

The accommodation offers almost free cancellation up until a few days before the trip. If Covid rules make the trip unviable we'll cancel and deposits will be repaid (minus £5 to 10 p.p. because the service charge on one of the Airbnbs is non-refundable) . We can't refund deposits if the trip goes ahead and individuals pull out for personal reasons.

Travel
Best to fly to Turin and hire a car to drive to Cogne (1hr 45mins) and to get around to the crags. We can sort car hire sharing nearer the time.
