In June we went to Swannage to enjoy some sea cliff climbing along the Jurassic Coast with some of the best sports climbing in the UK. Photos posted on the HMC Facebook Group by Steve Moore.

Camping in the Torrent Walk Caravan & Camping Site There are many walks surrounding Dolgun Uchaf, one of the most famous is the Torrent walk which is only 500 meters away from the site. Recently the area has become a Mecca for Mountain Biking. New toilet block with facilities for disabled etc hair dryers washing machines drying facilities fridge opening in March. http://www.guesthousessnowdonia.com/accom-camping.html
We have secured an excellent campsite, with amazing views of the sea, with an easy walk into St Davids for various pub options. This area has amazing walks and also great sea cliff climbing, the campsite has great facilities including hot shower! For more information see their website: Croeso – Welcome to the Porthclais Farm Campsite!
In September we will be camping in Exmoor – at Sparkhayes campsite in Porlock. http://www.sparkhayes.co.uk Lots of walking on Exmoor and along the coast. Also climbing opportunities at Hurlstone Point and Valley of Rocks. At least 2 pubs within 5 minutes walk in Porlock
The HMC have been fortunate to secure the booking once again of this wonderful hut in a great location in Great Langdale Valley. Its ideally situated for a great weekend of walks up into the Central Fells (Crinkle Crags, Esk, Bowfell, Great End & Scafell). Climbing is also available on the crags over Old Dungeon Ghyll.
Parking outside the hut for approximately 8 cars so do try to car share as much as possible.
The nearest pub is about 10-15 minutes walk away: The New Dungeon Ghyll hotel and the Stickle Barn, which both serve good food and real ale.
That’s it for now….
Hope to see you all at the pub social on Tuesday and in Wales for some Cadir Idris fun.
All the best
