North Wales 15-17 Feb 2019 meet report

Eleven members enjoyed the comfort of a hut the club have not used before (owned by Lincoln Mountaineering Club) which sits down a field off the road to Dinorwic.

Saturday was the main day for action. Ali lead a walk through the slate quarries and down and around Llyn Peris. Five of us did a mini expedition through the quarries following two routes that make up part of a trilogy of routes called Snakes and Ladders. These involve tunnels, fixed ladders (only just fixed in some bits) and a couple of abseils. All in all a great day out, quite unique, and well worth doing. The good news was that the rain started just as we finished.
On Saturday evening we had a group curry which involved a modest six courses. These being poppodoms, onion bhajis, chicken tikka and/or aubergine curry, a break for a glass of port, fruit salad and finally two types of cake. A great meal and thanks to all for planning, supply, preparation and washing up.

The weather on Sunday was poor. Some people did a windy walk, some went to find a café. Kathy and John stayed over on Sunday night and the next day checked out how to find a three star grade 1 scramble though due to poor weather an ascent had to wait for another visit. Plenty of reasons to go back and enjoy some of the walking and adventure in this bit of North Wales.
