Meet Promo


Walking and (hopefully) climbing in Helvellyn area from early on Sunday morning.

We managed last minute accommodation at Beetham Cottage and all spaces are taken so this meet is FULLY BOOKED for the stopover.

If anyone fancies the winter walking then arrive very early sunday at Beetham to meet the walking contingent, Note there is no phone signal at all and no wi-fi, so please make contact at the latest during the day Saturday with the meet leader to check on estimated departure time.

Winter Equipment and suitable experience of how to use it required. It will be very icy on the tops and the the walking will most likely cover at least Grade I terrain.  




A meet set to take best advantage of prevailing conditions in the Peak, Lakes or Wales. Wherever there is the most fun to be had in the snow. The meet could be on either the Saturday or the Sunday or on both days. If it's the peak it will be a day trip, if Wales then we will potentially overnight at Ty Powdwr whichever night is required (or both). If it is the Lakes then we will see what last minute hut accomodation might be available otherwise it may be a bothy, camping or a day trip. Leave the weekend free and lets see what happens. If it is miserable and wet then we will still get out to do something somewhere on one of the days. Let me know if you are interested, and if you can offer a lift or if you need one.

Keep an eye on scribble, but most importantly email me if you are interested and I will keep you updated.
