Stag Lodge Strathcarron
Stag Lodge Sat 17th Feb - Sat 24th Feb, 2024
A lovely luxury gaming lodge high up in the Strathcarron valley - not your average climbing hut!
There are some (conditions permitting) excellent Ice climbing venues nearby. But in the event the conditions are less that ideal for the ice then we would be within a good distance of the lovely torridonian ridges which can give some amazing winter mountaineering. If it is as is occasionally the case these days, lovely spring weather then there is plenty of summer scrambling or even rock climbing that could be done.
For the hill walkers there is plenty of that too, with monroes on both sides of the valley.
£115 for 7 nights. Deadline for payment is December 10th.
If you plan to stay for less than the full 7 nights then there will be a £10 reduction per night not taken.
All of the above is payable in advance and refunds will generally only given in the event of replacing your space.
Full members only in the first instance. Will open it up to other members if spaces are not filled closer to the time. Please email for any enquiries or to express interest.
When signing up to the meet, you may like to indicate what your aspirations are for the weekend. Conditions permitting, there will likely be several members aiming to climb winter routes at a higher level of commitment – this does require relevant prior experience and can come with an increased risk of associated objective dangers and corresponding need to assess, plan accordingly and re-assess continually throughout the day. Please do bear in mind, particularly if you're new to the club or to the winter environment, that an assumption of you joining in at this level might lead to disappointment. Instead, why not first have a friendly chat with the meet leader to discuss your aspirations and what you can hope to get out of the meet. As ever, you should remember the participation statement applies (http://www.karabiner.org/meets/) and acknowledge that you are ultimately responsible for your own actions and involvement.
Different meets require varying levels of experience and fitness. Please speak to the meet organiser before the meet if you are concerned about any issues with regard to the meet or your ability to participate in the activities proposed. Contact details can be found on the Contact Us page.
