That's the view from the bunkhouse! We have sole use of this fine group accommodation location :)
At 2016/17 New Year we booked a bunkhouse and eight of us got away from the madness that is the festive season for a couple of nights and a few days walking. It was a great success so we're doing it again :)
The bunkhouse is in the Ogwen Valley and overlooks The Glyders and Tryfan. The proposed itinerary is:
Saturday 10am — Walk from the bunkhouse to The Glyders via Llyn Ogwen and The Devils Kitchen.
Sunday 11am — A walk taking in the ridge behind the bunkhouse and do as much as we feel like doing. This will be some of the lesser mountains in The Carneddau.
Monday 10am — Walk up Tryfan.
Tuesday 10am — A mornings walk around a lake near Betws y Coed and then depart.
The cost for the three nights accommodation and three and a half days guiding is a very reasonable £125pp. This will include any kit you might require but does not include transport or food. Car sharing will be encouraged.
Andy will be teaching map and compass skills to those that want to learn.
New Years Eve can be spent at the bunkhouse and we can cook up a feast or we can go to the nearby pub for a range of meal options and a jar or two.
Andy will remain in Snowdonia for the rest of the week and will be delivering a backpacking expedition into The Carneddau and the ridge running from Bethesda back to Capel Curig. This will be a three night camping expedition so look out for the details of interested in staying for longer.
