North Wales – January 2023

The weather forecast was poor for the weekend, but this did not deter a brave 12 who decided that as always North Wales was worth the risk. We knew winter conditions were unlikely and high winds a probability, but some excellent walking and scrambling beckoned. The crampons and ice axes were stowed once again ready […]

Luke topped out Big Top with Big Matt, while on Little Brown Jug I grabbed the medium sized jug, and later, the big ones.

Sadly we are retreating back indoors for our weeknight climbing now, although it […]

Chamonix Trip August 22

The AMC held a trip from 27th August to 10th Sept to Chamonix in the French Alps. At least that was the plan! Poor conditions reports and a flotilla of solo van drivers meant a measly four of us met at the perfectly positioned, but a bit rough Camping les Arolles in Cham. Next time […]
