Organiser's Description

**** the main hut has now sold out. The remaining spots are officially designated as camping places- so bring a tent. There is a strong likelyhood that you will be able to sleep in the hut, but I cannot guarantee it***


Welcome to the payment page for our trip to Wales!

We have booked Glan Dena in Wales for us all to stay in. Check out the map for the exact location. I've stayed here many times and its quite luxurious for a climbing hut! There are good showers, a very nice lounge with a wood burning stove and a massive kitchen. There is plenty of parking, however it is somewhat remote - unless you want to drive to get some all food and drink that you want to have over the weekend should be 


For insurance reasons these trips are aimed at ESC members and for that reason they will have been emailed a £10 discount code. If you are not a member and try to use the code your ticket will be invalidated by us and give me a headache so please don't! The discount code only works for one person at a time so if you want to pay for multiple people with a code just buy one ticket at a time.

If your not a member of the club you count as a prospective member for insurance reasons (ie are covered) for the first trip that you did with the club. If you've been coming on club trips for longer than that you'll need to join up to come. The link for that is here:

The breakdown of the costs is as follows:

2 nights in Glan Dena ESC member - £30

2 nights in Glan Dena NON member - £40


Make sure you add yourself to the Facebook event page arrange for car sharing. If your not on facebook get in touch and I'll help sort you a lift. The process for car sharing is as follows; if you can offer a lift then post on the facebook event where you live and how many spaces you have, if you want a lift comment underneath that persons post untill the car is full. Costs are set by the driver and split between everyone in the car.

We hope to have members from all branches of ESC coming along so there should be plenty of opportunites for lift sharing whereever you live.

Activies for the weekend

The club will have an activity arranged for each day if you want to join in. Plenty of things to do including, mountain biking, hill walking, climbing and surfing! If you want to climb but need instruction please let us know in advance via the facebook page - we can accomodate a small number of novices, but if there are large numbers then we'll arrange a lesson. We expect everyone coming to have passed their belay test if they want to climb.

Anyone that comes along can can do what ever they want, if you want to do something specific share it on the Facebook event page. If you want us to organise something send one of the commitee a message.

What you need to bring

Food and alcohol for the weekend. The communal meal will be on the Saturday night.

Sleeping bag and pillow case (there are pillows but you need to have your own case for it).

Any gear you have that you need for the activities including a bike if your going biking (or find somewhere nearby to hire one). if you are a novice climber and need any gear (including harness and helmets) please let us know in advance via the facebook page - we can accomodate a small number of novices.
