Co-ordinator : Richard Cameron- Faulkner

Join us for a fun day bouldering and trad. climbing at one of the Peak's least visited western gritstone edges. All grades are catered for , there is something here for everyone! Understated it may be  but there are dozens of routes to be had if we land a dry day. Weather permitting I will be there from mid morning to late afternoon. 

There is usually plenty of parking at the lay by just beyond and to the right of the triangular junction by Corner House on Newstone, which is west of the A53 st the junction immediately south of the Winking Man Tavern (carpark postcode ST138UQ,  grid reference SK017 636). Follow the footpath adjacent to Corner House in a northerly direction to reach the outcrop shortly by way of the charming moorland. Looking forwards to seeing you there - even if you are not planning to climb this is a great place for a picnic and deer spotting.

    Bry Hafod Mountain Hut is set at the head of the magnificent Cwm Cywarch in the Aran Mountains of Mid Wales - an area rich in unspoilt climbing and hill walking. This is one of the nicest hut locations you could wish for. It is a remote isolated location and simply appointed with a large kitchen, Calor gas powered cooking hobs, mains electricity, showers, hot water and a multi-stove. The bunk room is Alpine bunk style (not individual bunks).

    The opportunities for a great day out start immediately from the hut doorstep in the Aran hills or with a short drive to the Cadir Idris area. Meet participants are welcome to walk or climb as they please on this meet but I will be visiting Cadir Idris on the Saturday and will be very happy for anyone to join me. Crags above the hut offer rock climbing off the beaten path.

    I shall be providing a delicious communal meal for all on the Saturday night (approx£5). I will also be organising an edition of the legendary light hearted 'Nightingale's Newspaper Quiz' (with prizes) on Saturday evening for those who wish to partake.

    I have booked 10 bunk spaces for the Friday 26th and Saturday 27th of April at a cost of £25 per person for the two nights. The hut will sleep a few more than this so if needed I hope to be able to book more spaces. Booking will be on a 'first come first served ' basis and booking and payment should be made by 15th April please.

    Spring is a great time to visit Scotland whether for Munroing, climbing or both, which is what I plan! The crags are often in good condition and there are plenty in easy range of Craigallan and, equally, many Munros too, hopefully with some snow on the tops.

    Come and join the Meet for all or part of the time and be part of the team that hosts our friends from the CC.

    Contact me via email ( if you wish to attend. My plan is to share the accommodation available on a 50:50 basis between the clubs, at least in the first instance.

    This is a three day self supported bike packing trip around the Cairngorms. We will meet at Blair Atholl station at 10am on the Saturday and head clockwise around the Cairngorm loop via Aviemore, Tomintoul and Braemar. The total distance is 200km, so 60-70km per day with 2,240m of ascent. We should return to Blair Atholl on the Monday afternoon. We will be camping and you will need to bring food with you although there are resupply opportunities at several points on route. The GPX file for the route can be found on Komoot. I suggest MTB rather than grivel bike. Please contact me and let me know if you wish to attend or have any questions.
