Contact Organiser


As Eddie turns 80 the club wants to celebrate.  A long time member – climber, cyclist and walker- come and help us celebrate Eddie turning 80 but still as active as the average 50 year old! Join the party!

Tan Yr Wyddfa, mountaineering hut in Snowdonia, is at Rhyd Ddu.  On a clear day you can see the top of Snowdon and you can walk from here all the way to the summit on the well marked Rhyd Ddu path.

The hut is also a superb base for walks onto the Nantlle ridge, Moel Hebog, Mynydd Mawr and Yr Aran.  There is a pub, a café and a Welsh Highland Railway station close by.  Beddgelert is five miles away. The hut is well placed for climbing  – being within easy driving distance of Tremadog, the Moelwyns, the Llanberis pass and most other popular mountains crags and paths within central Snowdonia.   If you want to climb on Cloggy, you can walk there!

HMC has the use of three bedrooms which  sleeps 22 people in bunk beds.

There are three toilets and both men’s and women’s washrooms with showers.  The kitchen is fully equipped with gas cookers, microwave oven, electrical kettles, hot water boiler and toasters, plus all the necessary cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery.  The dining room is adjacent to the kitchen.  There is also a good-sized utility room with fridges, food storage racks and a drying room for wet clothes.  There is a large lounge with an open fire.  Wood and coal are supplied.  Outside there is a lockable bike shed, wood store and coal bunker.

The hut has its own car park adjacent to the hut, which accommodates 10 cars.

NOTE:  We have secured an extra 6 beds for this meet, we now have exclusive use of the hut.
