Ogwen Mountaineering Festival 2018



The 2017 Ogwen Mountaineering Festival was held on the 15+16 September.

Alan Hinkes gave a lecture on the Friday evening, Lowri Morgan headlinde the Welsh afternoon (translation facilities were available) and Nigel Shepherd, author and Mountain Guide closed the festival on Saturday evening.

In addition we had free climbing workshops with the AMI (Association of Mountaineering Instructors), South Snowdonia Search and Rescue Team, Crib Goch outdoor shop, great raffle prizes and all topped off with plenty of refreshments available including Jones Crisps and local ales.

On the Friday the festival team visited four local primary schools with International surfer Llywelyn Williams and climber Calum Muskett.

The festival is definately one to put in the diary and looks to be an exciting and memorable event once again in 2018!!
