Meets

Meets are what the club is all about. They're run by members, for members. The club thrives by having members take an active interest in the meets that are run. We typically agree the next year's meets - where we're going and who's organising which meet - at our AGM in October. The Frequently Asked Questions page offers advice on what to expect on a meet.

Depending on the program or application you're using, you may need to choose the "subscribe" or "add by URL" option. Contact the Webmaster for help.

Summer Sports in the Pass of Llanberis
22 Jul 2024 to 26 Jul 2024

I reckon you deserve a week off, staying in a lovely little hut nestled in the Pass of Llanberis, arguably the home of trad climbing in the UK. The hut is based in Nant Peris so you have iconic crags such as Graig Ddu, Clogwyn Grochan, Carreg Wasted, Dinas y Gromlech and Dinas Mot just a short walk or bus ride away - its a paradise for anyone looking to get into their multi-pitch climbing with lots of very accessible grades. Another bonus is that the position of the hut is literally only a 20min walk away from the famous sport routes of the Llanberis quarries, which, on showery days are very fast drying. Not wanting to tie in? You could explore the many world class boulders in the valley or just take full advantage of some incredible walks all from the front door of the hut.

Reach out to me if you have any questions or if you want to chat through logistics of the meet.

Monday 22nd to Friday 26th July

Accommodation
Fronwydyr hut in Nant Peris at £10 per night per person.

We'll keep it a secret for just a little while longer, but expect it to feature beaches, lakes and big mountains within a 30-minute drive, and a beautiful ruined abbey within 15. (A penguin award goes to whomever guesses it just from that).

Join us for the awarding of Rockhopper of the Year, commiseration prizes for all of the runner-ups and a glance at the much-loved but a little bit creepy Penny the Penguin.
