Blairgowrie and District Next Steps
Ideas for International Women's Day please. Carn Aosda ticks lots of boxes, accessible, parking for coaches, toilets, not too difficult for the very elderly, enough of a challenge with the usual weather and an easy escape. However alternative ideas more than welcome. Details at this link. Alternatively as we have done before a trek like Jock's Road can be undertaken though numbers have to be limited. Recently a group claimed the highest number of ascenders 117 to a Munro on Ben Wyvis. So there's the challenge, we could with planning and recruitment do better! Though I would suggest something more demanding - say Glas Maol! But maybe not on 8th March.
Camping In planning are a couple more 1 night introductory sessions, followed by another sequence of 2, 3 and 4 night (3, 4 and 5 days) treks. Spaces have to be limited for the multi-night events as the availability of a large area suitable for many tents is unknown.
Climbing I intend to run some climbing wall sessions in spring and summer followed by abseiling etc during the school holidays.
I will have a sign up form in the folder.
