Newsletter 02/03/2018

Roaches The Roaches is a classic venue that has never failed to be wet every time SUMC go! That didn’t stop us from making the most of the day though. Saturday morning began with teaching our newer members the dos and don’ts of gear placement and anchor building. Following that, the send train up the classic squeeze, Sifta’s Quid Inside Route (S 3a), was a great struggle for everyone involved. Saturday night had games of Touch the Cup and Mafia to keep us entertained while we tried to ignore the ... read more

Newsletter 21/11/2017

Hello everyone, Another busy couple of weeks for SUMC! Pembroke Almost 30 climbers made the trip over to Pembroke this weekend. Although the forecast was bleak, we headed out to Craig Caerfai and managed to get 1 or 2 climbs in each before the weather hit. However we made the most of the rest of the day by building dams on the beach, exploring caves and going on a very wet walk. Then it was back to the hut to dry everything off (with little success), games of Mafia, Pick ... read more
