Snowdonia – Nov 2019

Hill walking, navigation practice and dining

The weather forecast having proved unduly pessimistic, only one member was lost to the World Cup rugby final on the big screen in Betsw and two groups set out direct from the comfortable Hendre Isaf bunkhouse, one clockwise and one anticlockwise. Meanwhile a third group set off from Capel to numerous mystery destinations as part of an ‘Improve your Navigation’ event, finishing on the summit of Crimpau.

Suitably spruced up, members then waited for the coach to the Annual Dinner, some opting for the simple choice of a glass of prosecco while others deliberated carefully the correct flavour of tonic to go with the gin.

The excellent three course meal at the Royal Oak Hotel in Betsw was followed by an engaging speaker from the Snowdonia Society.

On Sunday, one group set off in what proved to be a successful hunt for views from the summit of Moel Siabod while another braved the deep, dark (and very boggy) forest before emerging onto the hillside and onto the summit of Y Ro Wen above Penmachno.
