[mammut destinations, 1 kb]There is a great forecast for North Wales this weekend. If you are in the area, pop in to V12 Outdoor In Llanberis for another Mammut event.

UPDATE FROM V12

This weekend Mammut will be running a special test kit event in the Llanberis Pass. Mammut UK staff, plus sponsored climber, Dougal Taverner will be arriving with a van full of test goodies, including all manner of rock shoes, harnesses, ropes etc.

The forecast looks good so the plan is to station the van at the Cromlech layby in the Llanberis Pass. Do check at the V12 Llanberis shop first as this arrangement may change if the weather turns awry.

The test kit will be available to try, but do bear in mind that on a busy Easter holiday weekend the laybys are likely to fill up quickly in the morning. There is of course a regular bus service running up and down the Pass; failing that it’s a pretty easy hitch. Or just go later in the day: by mid afternoon the layby spaces usually become available again.
Mammut fans will also be pleased to note that the V12 in house Mammut shop is well stocked with an extensive range of products, and includes an enticing ‘sale rail’.

This isn't news, it is an advert. The title is misleading and a tacky way of generating clicks.

It's a press release as most OInews items are.

Surely if the weather is that good people will be out and about, not shopping. This would work better if the weather were going to be marginal.

Is this the start of summer conditions threads?

Great, more advice on where not to go. I have to agree with the poster above, who in their right mind is going to go shopping when the weather is good?

If people go to the time and trouble of organising events why shouldn't they publisise them. Perhaps they should't bother!
