March
22nd - 24th


SNOWDONIA
70th Anniversary Ascent of the Conway Crag, Snowdonia

On 23rd Mar 1946 a party of 6 cadets climbred the crag of Clogwyn Mawr on the lower slopes of Snowdon.  The Climbing Club of Great Britain promptly renamed it The Conway Crag.  You are invited to walk it 70 years on and to plant a Conway ensign.

The walk will take about two hous each way and 50 people have signed up to date.  Most of it is on well made track up Snowdon, but the last half mile is steep cross country walking with a bit of easy rock scrambling at the end ... nothing too daunting though, there's no actual climbing involved !
