Are you a young, keen British alpinist? The BMC and The Alpine Club have teamed up to launch a new process to help talented British alpine climbers improve their skills and knowledge about expedition climbing.
As part of this process an evening meeting will be held at The Beacon Climbing Centre in North Wales on Saturday 15 July. All young, keen British alpinists are invited.
The meeting will include talks from some of Britain's most experienced expedition alpine climbers, who will be discussing previous trips and sharing their knowledge of different potential areas for future expeditions. There should also be the chance to make plans to get out and climb or walk with other attendees on the Sunday.
5pm, Saturday 15 July (we should be finished by 9pm)
The Beacon Climbing Centre, Cibyn Estate, Caernarfon, LL55 2BD (Tel: 01286 677 322)
Experienced, keen British alpinists under 35 years old. This is not an introductory programme for alpine climbing, but targeted at those who already have significant experience in Scottish winter climbing, summer and winter alpinism and perhaps expeditions. You don't need to be jogging up North Faces or climbing Scottish grade VIII to come along, just to be actively climbing in the mountains and be excited about expedition alpine climbing. If this sounds like you then please come along!
