  • Bank holiday trip to Dartmoor

    Friday, 4th May 2018 at 6pm - 6pm Monday, 7th May
    Location: Cockingford Farm Campsite, Widecombe In The Moor, Newton Abbot, Devon, TQ13 7TG

    This year our May Day bank holiday trip takes us to Dartmoor where fantastic climbing, bouldering, walking and cycling awaits, all set to a beautiful moorland backdrop. 

    This will be a camping trip and we will be staying at Cockingford Farm Campsite which is near Widecombe in the moor. It's a basic campsite but gets good reviews and the owners are happy for us to camp as a group with no need to book in advance (which is good as if the weather is completely rubbish we can go somewhere else). There are two pubs are about 30 minute walk away.

    Camping is charged at £6 per person per night (no extra charges for cars or tents) showers are included. You'll need to bring a tent and camping gear, plus food and drink for the weekend. We may go for a meal at one of the local pubs on one evening for those that would like to do this.

    It make sense to share transport given the distance to Devon so if you indicate your attendance by RSVP'ing on the website we will get in touch with those attending and co-ordinate transport.

This is a strictly grown ups only weekend and the plan is simple, big adventures by day, big party by night, need we say more! 

    The venu is the CHAmois mountaineering centre near Llanberis in North Wales which we have exclusive use of for the weekend. You'll need to bring your own food for breakfast/lunch, plus we'll be asking everyone to bring a dish to contribute towards a big buffet dinner on the Saturday night. And of course you should definitely bring plenty of your favourite tipple!

    To contribute towards the cost of the accommodation pleas bring £10 cash per person with you. No presents are to be brought. The only gift required is your company (partners are of course welcome too). 

    Although the CHAmois hut is very large, sleeping 46 people, please make sure you book your places in advance by contacting the Meets Secretary, Andy Potter - meetsec@bowlineclimbingclub.co.uk.

  • Family meet at the club hut

    Friday, 8th June 2018 at 6pm - 5pm Sunday, 10th June
    Location: Dinorwic Mill Cottage, Tai Felin, Brynrefail, Caernarfon, Gwynedd

    Our first family meet of this year, a weekend where "the kids rule" at the hut. Previous hut weekends with the kids have involved staying up late, top/leading roping slate routes, going for scrambling adventures, paddling in streams, going Geocaching, and bouldering in the Pass. 

    The meet is aimed at (but not limited to) club members and their children. We aim to take our little adventurers into mountains during the day, and have a communal meal and a few board games on the Saturday night. There will likely be some bouldering too.

    Book your places with the hut secretary as normal. We'll co-ordinate the group meal nearer the time.

  • Dolomites Trip

    Friday, 24th August 2018 at 9am - 9am Saturday, 8th September
    Location: Dolomites, Italy

    Our summer trip to the Dolomites. We've got two weeks planned for the trip although will be asking those interested to indicate which week they would prefer to go (or both weeks).

    We will be staying in Cortina at a campsite we've used before and has all the facilities we need and costs around £10 a night per head. If you're going for the full two weeks then you may want to drive to Cortina. If you're going for a week only then you'll probably want to fly. The closest are the Venice airports, which are under 2 hours drive from Cortina. The best cost I got was about £170 return from Venice Marco Polo airport from Gatwick(excluding paying for 1 bag). Alternatively we could fly to Milan Malpensa - best cost I got was £117 (excluding paying for 1 bag) from Stansted. These costs are for the 1st week Saturday to Saturday, if we go in the 2nd week it is a lot cheaper; Stansted to Venice Treviso is £71 and East Midlands to Milan Bergamo is £168 (Transfer time 4 hours 30 mins). Let us know which week you want to do and then we can select the best week and get the flights sorted before the costs go up too much. We will need to hire a car if we fly, should be reasonable if we can stuff 3+ people in each car we need.
