North Wales Camping Meet
Mar 29 – Mar 31 all-day

Meet organiser: David Kirsfelds

We’re deviating from the initial plan of staying at Eric’s in Tremadog and instead visiting ‘Snowdonia Parc REAL ALE BREWPUB & Campsite’ (http://www.snowdonia-park.co.uk/). It’s a short drive away from loads of great climbing venues including the Llanberis Pass and Dinorwic slate quarries (20 mins), Tremadog (30 mins) and Gogarth (45 mins).

If that’s not enough to whet your appetite then the start of the Nantlle Ridge is just up the road in Rhyd Ddu (10 mins), there’s a steam train station next to the campsite (https://www.festrail.co.uk/timetable-whr.htm) and the campsite is also a microbrewery and serves food and drink onsite – get in!

This year’s ‘Turn up and Tie On’ will be from 10am on 28th April at Stanage Popular (https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=104)

This is an opportunity to come along and climb with us to see how we roll.

Meet at the roadside parking (GR245829) at 10am or find us on the crag later. All we ask is that you have your own harness, helmet and shoes and can already belay safely.

If you’re interested please complete our First Climb Form (https://forms.gle/PiDgPqDtXJv3mmFRA) in advance.

Wye Valley Early May Bank Holiday Camping Meet
May 3 – May 6 all-day

Meet organiser: Liz & Dave Wilson

We will camp at the Beeches Farm campsite quite near Tintern and its fine ruined abbey.

http://www.beechesfarmcampsite.co.uk .

The site is walking distance from the Abbey, and about a kilometre away from an excellent pub.

The Wye valley has a fantastic variety of quality limestone crags, to suit all abilities. About a mile walk away (down the Offa’s Dyke Path), is Shorn Cliff, where there is an excellent selection of middle grade routes (VS to E2). Further south toward Chepstow, about 3 miles by road is Wintours Leap. This is a superb crag, with a huge variety of multi-pitch routes of all grades, generally about 90 metres in length. In the Central and South bays there are plenty of stars in the amenable (even for me!) grades.

Further North is Symonds Yat, also with a good variety of grades, and there are even naughty bolted routes in nearby quarries!

Apart from climbing, there is excellent walking, and mountain biking in the Forest of Dean, where you can hire canoes on the River Wye.

The campsite people have asked us to make the bookings as a group if we want to be sited together, so if you’re coming contact me ASAP on dave.liz.wilson@homecall.co.uk, or by replying to this posting. Say if you want electricity hookup.
