As part of the Penpont weekend, there will be a group of us travelling to the south region of the Brecon Beacons for some outdoor sport climbing. Please feel free to join us for the day as this event is open to everyone. We will have to be fairly careful with numbers and people's experience levels, so please bear with us while we're organising the event and trying to accommodate as many people as we can on this event.
Though this is getting close to being the summer, it's still definitely spring time; so the weather may well not be suitable to getting outdoors and climbing some rocks in the wilds of the Brecon Beacons. As such, plans may well have to change closer to the date, including having to cancel if it's just not right for climbing.
Here's a bit of legal stuff...
As a BMC Affiliate member, Outdoorlads draws your attention to the fact that climbing is an activity with a danger of personal injury or death. You should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for your own actions and involvement. Please note that every person participating should be aware of (and accept) that those members perceived as ‘in charge’ or leading the event are not necessarily qualified, do not need to be qualified, and are not regarded by OutdoorLads, or themselves as ‘technical experts’ but are amateur climbers with some experience and who are happy to impart their knowledge. Any advice given should be considered with this in mind by the recipient
What to bring
We will be able to provide some personal equipment (harness, helmet) and some group equipment (quickdraws and ropes), but we have limited availability for this equipment. If you have your own climbing equipment, please do bring it along as this will allow us to welcome as many people as possible to enjoy the climbing to be had on this event.
We just scoped out the venue today (10-03-19) and it way pretty windy up there. It can get pretty cold if you're at the bottom belaying so, depending on the weather, do remember to bring warm clothes with you. You tend to need warming clothing than when walking as belaying is a lot less active than hiking.
Food & drink
Please bring a packed lunch with you, including sufficient water for the day. There is loads of space for us to make a bit of a base for the day, and I may take a camping stove to the crag with us so we can have cups of tea throughout the day.
There are some good pubs around this area and we may just have to stop in at the end of the day.
