Weekend of mountaineering in Wales :
Multi-pitch trad climbing - Clogwyn y Ddysgl @ 8.00
Another route from Top50 UK Climbs list :
The Gambit Climb
90 metres approx
One of the finest mountain routes in the UK . The Gambit Climb has it all . Acres of exposure, superb moves, great rock and a crux at the end .
This is very much place for those who want to experience quiet multi - pitch mountain routes in isolation as its quiet far away from any road 🤗
+ short bouldering session at Cromlech Boulders afterwards (if we'll have enough daytime)
Wild camping at Llanberis Pass where sunsets and sunrises are always spectacular,)
Bouldering - RAC Boulders (near Capel Curig) @ 11.00
A delightful sunny place that is well worth visiting throughout the year.
Great variety of low and mid grade problems, friendly landings and roadside access .
Great outing for sure guys !
* in case of bad weather we will be heading for full day of hiking and scrambling on Saturday and indoor climbing on Sunday
The Welsh 3000's Challenge (The Welsh Munros Challenge) is a popular challenge both for experienced hillwalkers and more extreme challenge seekers . A 'Munro' is a peak over 3000ft and the aim is to reach the top of all of them . For the extreme challenge to be completed successfully you need to make it between summits of the first (Snowdon) and last (Foel-fras) within 24 hours , though for most people the route is best done over three days with valley camping or staying in nearby B&Bs.
Our aim will be to do this one over 2 days (with bivy in scenic location) as its much safer and pleasant to be able to see great surroundings:)
The route is just over 45km with more than 3700m of ascent and descent throughout the journey. It takes in three of the major mountain ranges : Snowdon , The Glyders and Carneddau . This is no light undertaking and should not be underestimated. You need to be fit and able to complete successive very long days .
No climbing on this one guys ,)
Bouldering at Burbage South boulders field. The Valley Boulders at Burbage South offer some of the most friendly bouldering around 🤗
The landings are excellent and nothing gets too high. The problems tend to be slabs and walls with some rounded aretes thrown in. Wide spread of grades suitable for beginners as well .
Awesome Walls Sheffield in case of bad weather.
Event suitable for beginners . Climbing shoes needed,)
Sport climbing at Horseshoe Quarry - well established as the most popular limestone crag in Peak District.
Crag can be pleasant and climbable in mid-winter as its great winter sun-trap. The main wall gets plenty of sunshine and its fairly well sheltered from wind with almost no seepage.
* If weather too bad for climbing we will be heading for Awesome Walls Sheffield
