Information about Equipment, Transport and Accomodation

Transport to North Wales

Most of the courses I run will involve meeting either in Llanberis, or Capel Curig.

If Driving: The A5, or A55 are both great way to get to the Llanberis area of Snowdonia. If coming from down south, the A5 is shorter and quicker at times of low traffic. Otherwise the A55 is a good bet.

By Train: Bangor train station is the closest to the Llanberis/Capel Curig area. From bangor, a taxi will be between £10-£15.

The train from London Euston to Bangor takes about 3:30hrs, and runs late on a Friday night and after the course on a Sunday. This is a relaxing and easy way to arrive.

What to bring...?

Depending on where you are staying, you may need a tent, or nothing at all.

For the course:

40Litre ish Rucksack

Appropriate mountain footware to get to the crags. Or walking boots for scrambling. Ideally at least B1 rated boots.

Climbing shoes for your climbing course. Renting these can be difficult and the fit is unlikely to get the best from your climbing. If you are serious enough to be taking a course, it's worth buying you own.


Lunch and Water for the day of the course.

Helmet, Harness, Ropes and Gear can all be provided, so please communicate what you will need before the course.

For skills based walking/scrambling courses, a local 1:25k map and Silva type 4 compass is also recommended.


With a quick search on Booking.com or airbnb you can find an array of quality accommodation.

Here are a few places I would recommend:

Royal Victoria Hotel

Lake View Hotel

Seiont Manor

YHA Snowdon - Llanberis

YHA Pen y Pass

Lodge Dinorwig

Llwyn Celyn Bach Campsite, near the Snowdon YHA
