A meeting with the Anarchists of the hills

Anarchist of the hills

Twice a year we have a Lupine Adventure Co-op general meeting. These meeting involve as much, if not more, playing about on hill sides or rock faces than they do sitting around a table with a pen and paper in hand. We usually go somewhere to do something fun and outdoory while talking tangentially and at crossed purposes for a day before sitting down and doing the whole thing again in a structured way where hopefully we've already got a good idea where everyone is coming from. This autumn Ben and I decided to do a couple of extra days before the meeting. The first day involved a relatively unclimbed Very Severe route called Maverick at Gogarth. 

 

Day 2 of our pre General Meeting mountain days involved a trip up Tryfan to do another esoteric VS called Long Chimney, which is not particularly long, not a chimney and not (arguably) a VS. To be fair for me to back off a mountain VS is all par for the course but Ben went up and didn't like the look of it either. After a bit of trouble sticking to the Severe to the left we ended up binning the guide book for the day and forcing a route up the face.

 

We encountered these rather magnificent goats (anarchists of the hills according to Jim Perrin) on the way up and way down the track.
