Snowdonia winter meet
Jan 11 – Jan 14 all-day

This Annual trip to the snow clad mountains of North Wales (hopefully) will allow any RoCs member to experience some easy winter mountaineering challenges without having to travel up to Scotland.
We have now booked the Barn hut at Capel Curig from Thursday 11th Jan to Sunday 14th January. If you wish to go on a winter hut based meet please say yes now so I can add you to the list. If you would like to go a few days earlier or stay a few days later, let me know and I will adjust the booking with the hut owners. The cost is £10 per person per night. There are bunks in several rooms so all you need to take is a sleeping bag & pillow plus all your personal gear, and any food & drink for breakfast & lunch. We can eat in the pub and/or cook in the hut, to be decided nearer the time. Can each person bring up a small bag of wood for the stove as it may be a bit chilly.
As it is a winter trip, bring with you suitable winter warm and waterproof clothing, a decent pair of mountaineering boots, crampons and a walking axe as a minimum set of gear in case we get that rare thing called snow. Quite often the snow does not settle (or even arrive) so then it can be a bit wet and wild. Be prepared to bring waterproof trousers and jacket and a set of dry clothes for walking and to walk to the pub in the evening.
Patrick and I will go up Thursday morning and return Sunday afternoon. Travel plans will be confirmed nearer the time depending on who is attending. Post on the Facebook Events page if you are interested in joining the winter crew on this mad adventure full of fun, possibly some winter mountaineering and more than likely a good time in the pub and in the hut.
