Tremadog Festival - 24/04/2010

Now a regular fixture in the climbing calendar, the Tremadog Festival is based around 'spring cleaning' routes on Craig Bwlch y Moch, owned by the British Mountaineering Council (BMC).

BMC Cymru are organising the event and ask climbers to register outside Eric's Café (location) from 9.30 a.m. with your secateurs/trimming saw/patio knife where you can choose a route to garden from the list. In return, you'll be given a raffle ticket for prizes from local businesses (DMM, V12, Joe Brown's, Pete's Eats, Ground Up and The Bronwen Arms). The winning numbers will be drawn at 6.00 p.m.

The ticket also gives you entry to an evening slide show about big walling in Malaysia. The BMC, Climbers' Club and Derby Uni M.C. are sponsoring the free local beer that will accompany the presentation and bonfire afterwards.

The BMC are also sponsoring the free camping and bunkhouse accommodation.

Craig Bwlch y Moch has been owned by the British Mountaineering Council for more than thirty years. Through 'Better Woodlands for Wales' there is a management plan in place for the area below the crag which is primarily a sessile oak woodland. The oak over-storey however is being invaded by the more vigorous sycamore, which forms a large part of the ground cover along with hazel and ash regeneration. The long term plan is to manage the woodland for public access, specifically climbers, whilst maintaining and improving the ecological value of the habitats and protecting the oak woodland from invasive species. Any conflict between recreational usage and the ecological status of the woodland will be mitigated by erosion protection and clearer access routes to the bottom of climbs.

Location: Register outside Eric's Café from 9.30 a.m., Craig Bwlch y Moch, Tremadog.
