The hikes will be vigorous, full-day mountain walks and scrambles. This event is only intended for ML Trainees, qualified MLs, and ODL Walk Leaders.

This is a 5 night DIY peer led event at a DIY bunkhouse specifically for:

  • Registered MT Mountain Leader Award trainees;
  • OutdoorLads Hill or Mountain Walk Leaders; and
  • Qualified Mountain Leaders;

to get 4-6 days of 'Quality Mountain Days' towards ML Training log books, or some proper mountain days out with mountain people if you're already qualified.

 

We'll decide activities on the second night and as we go along, weather dependent. We'll probably do a full group QMD walk the first day. Then we might do:

  • Full and small group QMD walks like Snowdon horseshoe;
  • Grade 1 scrambles in small groups up Tryfan or similar;
  • Practice rope work or navigation;
  • Explore other bits of Snowdonia;
  • Do your own thing and take a day solo or in pairs;
  • Have a day off and gear shop and lounge in Llanberis or Capel Curig; or
  • Just head out the door and walk Moel Eilio.

NOTE: The cost is fixed however long you stay, but it's deliberately low and you don't need to come for the full 5 nights if you are unable to. 

Accommodation is very basic, don't expect much above a bothy and you won't be disappointed. No TV, Wi-fi, Telephone, Microwave etc etc.

There's a kitchen / dining room; outhouse toilet & shower; but no comfy lounge. You can see photos of the venue here: http://www.ffridd.org/index.php/pages/view/gallery

Food: Price does not include food so this will be a DIY collaboration amongst us, so expect to shop, share costs, cook and wash up. There are local shops, pubs and cafes in Llanberis. Tea, coffee and milk for drinks is provided. 

Dogs: This event is not suitable for dogs.

Optional: A Telegram group to coordinate lifts, food, and walking ideas will be set up by the leader. Message Mark (see above) to be added to the group. 

Note: A more "regular" hostel over Easter in North Wales is available!
