GLENCOE – WINTER MEET
Feb 17 – Feb 24 all-day

Glencoe is the home of Winter Climbing in Scotland, where local legend Hamish Macinnes invented the first technical ice axe, the “Terrordactyl”, so called as rumour has it he would wave it at terrified visiting mountain bikers who believed it to be an acceptable winter activity. Anyway, I digress

In Glencoe you will find classic mountaineering objectives like Curved Ridge or the epic Aonach Eagach, multiple Munro summits or classic hard mixed test pieces like Central Grooves, Unicorn, and the Clachaig Table Traverse. Of course if conditions are fickle the more reliable venues of Ben Nevis and Aonoch Mor are only a short drive away, as are the lower lying ice climbs of Beinn Udlaid if we are blessed with a cold snap We will be staying in the newly refurbished Heart of Glencoe Hostel (formerly the Glencoe Independent Hostel, now under new ownership), where we have 16 beds in the bunkhouse and an additional 8 split between two caravans. Each caravan has a double room and a twin so let me know if you specifically want to book the double room or a single in one of the caravans. Otherwise you will be allocated a spot in the bunkhouse.

The cost is £150 per person payable to the usual account, using the payment reference GLENCOE. Please contact me when you book on and with any room requests.

EASTER MEET
Apr 6 – Apr 13 all-day

Come down to the (mostly) sunny South West for a week of unforgettable coastal routes, atmospheric sea cliffs and picturesque beaches!

This year we’ll be staying at the Count House CC Hut in Cornwall, conveniently located within walking distance of the classic climbing routes at Bosigran, with many more iconic crags only a short drive away.

Perhaps I could tempt you with some surfing or a sea swim? 🌊 Or if you feel the need to walk off all those Cornish pasties and cream teas, then there are plenty of enjoyable walks that’ll do the trick (be sure to spread the jam then dollop the cream to keep the locals happy!)

We have 22 spots available in the bunkhouse which offers shared bedrooms (bunk beds), shared lounge and shared kitchen. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed in the hut itself and camping is only permitted to Climbers’ Club members. If you are planning to bring someone who is under 18 then please get in touch.

Please contact me in the first instance to check availability before paying £125pp into the Club Account with the payment reference “CORNWALL”.

Any questions, ping them my way! 🧗‍♀️ caraborzych@hotmail.co.uk
