BMC North Wales Youth Meet 2020

Posted by James McHaffie on 25/11/2019

Join one of the BMC and DMM's youth climbing meets in 2020, a weekend of classic climbs, good socials, and an evening lecture on the Saturday night. This one will be based at Bens Bunkhouse in the Llanberis Pass on the weekend of the 26th & 27th September

 

The BMC and DMM have teamed up to give youngsters the opportunity to take the step from indoor to outdoors, based at Bens Bunkhouse.

Organised for young climbers (11-17-years-old), wanting to make the step from indoor walls to getting outside on the crags, as well as those who already have some outdoor climbing experience, it is a great opportunity to enjoy some classic trad routes under the watchful eye of experienced climbers.

Overseen by the BMC youth and equity officer, James McHaffie, the meet is ideal for young climbers with suitable basic knowledge through to those that are more experienced; as there are limited places, if you're interested get signed up now.

A group of volunteer experienced climbers will be gathered together (minimum of five years climbing experience), who are known to the organisers and have been DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked (BMC do this free for volunteers). These experienced climbers will take the youngsters out onto the crags after taking account of their ability, aspirations and the weather.

If you would like to volunteer at the event please email James McHaffie: james@thebmc.co.uk.

People can arrive after 19.00 pm on Friday, 25th September. There will be a safety briefing Saturday morning before teams of youth participants and volunteers will head out to climb on the local cliffs. 

Food will be supplied on the Saturday night and an evening talk will be given by a well-known DMM climber. Youths and volunteers will need to supply their own breakfast and lunch for both days.

Sunday 27th September will involve more cragging with everyone expected back by 16.00 hrs to be picked up by parents or guardians soon after.

The meet will cost £30 which goes towards the two nights of accommodation and the food on the Saturday night.
