Gogarth Meet Report by Steve Lyon

Thanks to all and sundry who attended the Gogarth Meet and made it into such an enjoyable weekend. We had twelve members and one very junior member (baby Nia(Nea)) turning up at The South Stack car park on Saturday morning to establish an age spread record for this meet, from under one, to two active climbing sexagenarians.

Sadly intermittent drizzle and low cloud drifting over the cliff tops called for an alternative plan. A trip to the Castle Bakery and Coffee shop developed some alternatives; sightseeing, headland walks to photograph obscure places in the mist, and completing a few routes between showers at Rhoscolyn.

Sunday made it into a weekend of two halves as they say. The faithful were about to be rewarded. Brilliant autumnal sunshine saw teams climbing on Yellow and Red Walls and on Wen Slab in pretty much ideal conditions.

Ascents were made of Savage, Anarchist, The Moon, Wendigo, Dream of White Horses and Concrete Chimney. Simply superb.

Unfortunately we didn't have tickets for the Oyster Festival at The Trearddur Bay Hotel on Saturday night. I am working on this for next year. Bring your dinner jacket!
