Tyn Lon, Snowdonia - Hut Meet 20th - 21st July

Postby Luke J » Mon Jun 18, 2018 5:35 pm

Our mid summer hut meet is almost upon us, can you believe? This year we shall be at the excellently located and most excellent Ty'n Lon. Why so excellent? Well firstly it's right next door to the Vaynol Arms which, as those of you in the know know, means it isn't only right next door to said pub but is situated in the Llanberis pass, the heart of rock climbing in the UK. Don't worry if you're not a climber though, the walking and scrambling is as good as it gets. As if that wasn't enough it's also one of the nicest huts to feature on the LMC calendar with a great living area, featuring large windows to enjoy the steep mountains of The Pass from, a hidden balcony with comfy chairs to chill out in and a garden in which to enjoy the golden glow of the sunset on the rock, with a beer or 3.

We have provisionally booked for 12 places but given the previous popularity for hut meets so far this year another 3 places have been secured.

I suspect (hopefully) that this meet will prove to be popular so getting in early is advised. To book your place you need to get a cheque to me for £20 made payable to Leeds Mountaineering Club (address in the private section). Booking opens on 20th June.

Hut spaces are now full. There is an option for up to 5 people to camp in the garden with use of the hut facilities. If you wish to camp then you still need to send a cheque, just as if you are staying in the hut - standard hut booking rules apply. I've also started a reserve list for the hut spaces, people can have a camping space and be on the hut reserve list. If you want a camping space with the option to be upgraded to the hut should there be a space then let me know when you send your cheque.

Final Details:

The hut is the building on the other side of the tarmac area to the left of the Vaynol Arms in Nant Peris - https://tinyurl.com/yb76nf4h. There is a sign saying Tyn Lon next to the front door. Initial access is via the back door, through the fancy gates to the left of the property. I've put the access instructions in the private section.

We will be sleeping in the large room to the right at the top of the stairs. Other rooms are for CMC members only.

Parking spaces are available to the right of the hut in front of the church. Ensure the church gates are kept clear at all times. Also, do not park in the Llanberis Mountain Rescue or church marked spaces.

I should be there between 7 and 8, if you arrive late and there's no one around then we're probably in the Vaynol Arms!

You need to do this first:
Login and to go to "User Control Panel" > "Usergroups" > "Edit Memberships".
Select the radio button next to "LMC members".
Select "Join selected" (next to the submit button) then click the submit button.

If you've already done that, then I defer to someone with greater bulletin board knowledge than me!

Good knowledge, Lindsay - I didn't know that.

Mike needs to grant access to the private section I believe. I've PM'd him for you, Kirsty.

Sorry Andy and Jodie - the remaining 5 places have been taken by posted cheques and cheques given to me at the meet this weekend.

There is an option to camp - I've edited the first post to add the details.

Dammit! I just posted a cheque literally minutes ago.

Anyway, my (very late) 2018 membership renewal was with it.

I assume the camping is at the campsite opposite the Vaynol?
