You want to go somewhere that you can:
- Crush hard on awesome sport slate? (Everyone crushes so much harder on slate, I onsighted 6b+ last time without even blowing hard and I'm shit!)
- Do long alpine stuff on big ridges?
- Some sweet ass trad?
- Or just climb a mountain (well the nearest thing wales has to them)?
- and get an awesome siabod breakfast? (As much grease and tea as you can shake a shitty stick at!)


If the answer to any of these is yes, N Wales could be right up your Uberstrasse!


We'll depart friday afternoon / early evening. We will be camping but if you're a pussy there is a bunkhouse on the same campsite I believe. Two bus spaces are reserved for BMC safety seminar attendees and because I've only got a 9 seater for speed there aren't many spaces free!


Deposit is 30 for a bus space, usual rules apply post ref below etc. - Also bring some with you to pay the campsite man. Amount tbc.


Please note I'm going to be ripping it up in the Dolomites from the 19th Sep - 27th Sept so if this thread doesn't get updated it's because I'm busy being more rad than you.


1) Nash
2) Safety seminar attendee - Ali G (Paid)
3) Safety seminar attendee
4) Miller (d)
5) Twindle - (paid, credit) (d)
6) Thomas Hunter
7) Beth (from somewhere in t'North
 8)  Josiah
9) Josiah's Mate


Pack your passports!

I will most likely be there  8) will drive my car,  unless the minibus detours that way, which I don't really expect it to...

Count me in if possible, I'll pay with club credit. Only potential issue is I can't guarantee I could leave work early, so work on the assumption I'd be able to leave at 19:00, potentially 18:30. Hope that's not too late for everyone.

I'm pretty sure we ended up spending about 3 hours lost in birmingham when we went to annual dinner in N Wales....


I am also certain that we also go past the RAC building that's up there as well.

If we're not leaving until 7 it's going to be midnight before we get there.


Miller, what you're probably the other limiting factor time wise, what time could you be on a bus?

Beth, we will go around Brum on the M42 / M6 I think so if you get yourself to a service station we're in business.

I'll do my best to leave work early. If I eat dinner on the bus I could probably save 30 mins, and another 15 if you pick me up like you say. That could mean a departure of 18:00
