Capel Curig – DMC & Gwydyr Club (Oct 2023)

Friday 6 – Sunday 8 October 2023

2 people on the cantilever, Glyder Fach

6 DMC members made it down to North Wales for this joint meet with the Wirral based Gwydyr Club (where the late Pete Mann had been a previous president). We were made extremely welcome in their hut, a converted chapel, just outside Capel Curig. Saturday saw 2 walking parties take to the hills on a fine day with inversion conditions. The majority took on the Glyders via the Devil’s Kitchen with some managing to take in Tryfan as well. A smaller party enjoyed easterly outliers in the Carneddau range. We were treated to a 4 course dinner in the evening with talk about a further shared meet next year, somewhere on our patch. On Sunday some of us take a dook in the lake at Plas-y-Brenin then joining the remaining folk at the Moel Siabod cafe for brunch before the departure homeward.
