March Meet – Gwydyr Hut, Capel Curig, Snowdonia

Another great weekend with good attendance and a range of activities.

Friday 16th March

Alan, Malcolm and Flick went up early on Friday and walked from the hut along the bridleway to Llyn Crafnant, round the reservoir and back.  The rest of us all arrived late on Friday evening. 

Saturday 17th March

Malcolm and Juan were attempting to walk from Capel Curig to Glyder Fach but I think conditions got the better of them and they were back at the hut early, only to go out again and do another big walk, or was it a walk to the pub?  We never did get an answer!

The rest of us all walked to Betws-Y-Coed along the river, a nice 11 mile round trip hike, and while Adam and Gill decided to return, Alan, Graham, Flick, Shane and Lexi extended the hike to Llyn-y-Parc.

When we had all safely returned Malcolm (and Alan and Graham) cooked dinner for us all again.

Sunday 18th March

Overnight a considerable amount of snow arrived and we split into two parties.  Alan, Flick, Malcolm, Graham and Juan all went for a walk along the canal in Llangollen, while Shane, Lexi, Adam and Gill hiked up through the snow on the steep path behind the hut to a lake, across a very boggy snowfield and back down the Siabod main trail to the hut.  Considering the amount of snow, the journey home was pretty easy.
