5/6th October, PCU Hut Meet, Llanberis (Snowdonia)

Postby CathS » Sun Sep 02, 2018 9:34 pm

Bookings for this meet open on Wednesday.

We have 18 places available at this fantastic, spacious hut – one of the LMC’s favourites - which is just outside Llanberis on the road leading to the Tourist route up Snowdon. Grid Reference SH 581 591 Full details of the hut are here: http://site.chestermc.org/huts/

It’s great launching pad for lots of quality mountain walking and scrambling. You can walk straight out of the hut and follow the hordes up the Tourist path to the summit of Snowdon. Or take a much longer, quieter and more scenic route via Moel Eilio and the Snowdon Ranger Path. A short drive over the Llanberis Pass takes you over to the Ogwen area and Moel Siabod.

There is also a huge variety of climbing on the doorstep, with something to suit everyone. The hut is a stone’s throw away from the Llanberis Pass and the Dinorwic Slate Quarries; a short drive around to the Ogwen Valley; and if the weather is wet in the mountains, you can drive in 30-40 minutes to Tremadog, Holyhead Mountain and Gogarth, which often stay dry.

As the nights will be drawing in, I am also planning to organise a group curry for the Saturday night. More details to follow.

To secure a place, send me a cheque for £20, payable to the LMC. My address is in the Private section.

Still plenty of spaces left on this meet!

Please post up if you want to join in the shared meal. I will be making some veggie curries - a meat contribution would also be good. Will post up more details later.

That's great Ian!

At the moment there are just three of us up for the curry. Me, you and Dave C.

I am going to make a butter dhal and a cauliflower curry. Dave C is doing some salad and also bringing rice.

It would be good if you could bring a pudding of some sort.

It would also be great if others wanted to join the meal (and the meet!). If a few more join, the menu could be expanded...

PCU is a brilliant hut - come along folks!

Real shame I'm not free for this.

(there's a lot of people away during early October by the looks of things).

The Pass would be a fantastic place to be if the weather continues as it is at the moment!

I would like to be included in the communal meal.
I could try and make a meat curry, but curry is not my forte.
Or I could wash up.

Cheers

Cath - I'm trying to line some things up and hoping to come along - assuming the lurgy doesn't strike again!

Hi Cath

I would like to buy into the curry if that's ok. Will also provide a smoked salmony type of starter.

Good to hear that you are joining us Steve (and hopefully Mark too!).

Thanks for the offer of the starter John. It looks like there will now be 6 of us for the meal.

Can you confirm you are OK to bring a pudding Ian (otherwise, perhaps this is something you could bring John McMahon?).

If anyone else is planning to come on the meet and wants to join in the meal, please can they let me know by Tuesday night, as I will need to shop on Wednesday. It would also be good if anyone else who joins in could contribute another curry (perhaps a meat one, as what I'm offering at the moment is vegetarian, although it will be very tasty!).

Regarding travel plans, I will probably be heading over to arrive early Friday evening. I think Dave C and Mike will be setting off together from Leeds at 7 pm, and may have room for one other. I don't know about everyone else, so please post up if you can offer or need a lift.

I am hoping to climb if the weather is good, but haven't arranged to climb with anyone yet. I'd ideally like to climb around Severe to VS if I could team up with others to do that?

Really looking forward to the meet!

Hi Cath,
Cheque in the post to you this morning.

I'm happy to do another meat based curry.

I think Steve and I will be heading over early evening together.

Cross fingers for decent weather now!

Glad to hear you will be joining us Mark.

That will be great if you can bring a meat curry.

We should hopefully know final numbers for the meal by tomorrow night. I'm assuming that Steve also wants to join in?
