Snowdonia 1st - 2nd August

As promised at the recent Lakes meet, how about a mini meet in Snowdonia Sat 1st - Sun 2nd August. Although I hope to be there between 30th July - 2nd August.

Intended targets include Tryfan North Ridge, Bristly Ridge, Cneifion Arete, Gribben Ridge, Seniors Ridge and the Glyders as well as a cast of thousands.

In addition, I will be bringing climbing gear for a go at some of the easier routes on the Idwal slabs.

Camping in the Ogwen valley at one of the two sites near Tryfan. Bring some beer!!!

Sign up for it here.

Ok you lovely lot.  We are going to have one hell of a good time next weekend.  Got it??  We dont care what the weather is like. 

Now to that end - hereforthehugs and I have had a little idea for Saturday evening.  Not gonna tell you what it is as it will spoil the surprise.  All I'm gonna say is - bring with you a set of clothes that you dont mind getting very muddy, wet and possibly knackered - nuff said. 

I'm soooooooooooooooooooo looking forward to this.  Cant wait - bounce bounce bounce

Me !! annoyingly over enthusiastic?? I really dont know what you mean! errrrrrrrrrrrrr and no I'm not going to change so ner ner ner mwah my butt x

High above, in the clear air and searching sunlight, we are afoot with the mountain gods so that we can know each other and ourselves for what we really are.

Amandajbl - have you checked your email? Have left a couple of messages. Still down with the flu but keeping my fingers crossed.

Weather is looking a bit !!  Who cares though?  The Netty guys got washed away and have left Wales.  However, a couple of them may be back for Saturday.  Sooooooooooo, looking forward to this - whatever the weather and who manages to turn up 

Funny really - instead of peeps logging on and saying sorry I cant come - we seem to have more turning up.
