Caseg Fraith, 29-31 October 2010

For our first weekend trip of the year, we returned to Caseg Fraith, University of London M.C.'s excellent hut in Snowdonia's Ogwen Valley. After nearly 4 weeks of term, it was more than time to escape Cambridge for the hills - and 43 hillwalkers (a mixture of new members and old hands, plus a couple of duffers) agreed! Taking advantage of the hut's fantastic location, we walked and scrambled on Tryfan, the Glyders and the Carneddau on both days, with some parties driving over to Snowdon on the Saturday. Saturday evening's activities included apple bobbing, some enthusiastic singing (including an inspired performance of Monty Python's 'Lumberjack Song') , and the consumption of copious quantities of 'Rat's Blood' and 'Cat Bile' throughout!
