/ Camping in LLanberis pass
I tried google and this site to find out if it is a campsite, but couldn't find anything, so was just wondering if there is an official campsite there, and how much it costs, or if there is a tolerated rough camping spot?
Depends where you mean, exactly, but further down the road at the CC hut, camping is allowed there for CC members.
No it doesn't, that is lower down the valley. I think the OP means the small patch of land between the wall and the stream. Some years ago someone used to come around and ask for money but to this day I'm still not sure if it was kosher.
I haven't been there in a few months, but from memory it was pretty much directly across the road from the boulders, and not infront of a hut. Hence why I was wondering if it was just people rough camping
The old lady still comes around collecting money from people camped near the boulders, she got me on Saturday morning. My guess is that it is part of her families farm land, but I could be wrong.
actually this must have been the place I was thinking of:
Is this the CC hut, or something else?
Does anyone know what the policy is for non CC members camping at the hut, or do you just have to email and ask?
aaah, do you know if they allow camping for recipricoal club members (ie Austrian Alpine Club)
Ok, thanks for the advice, I've sent them an email so we shall see.
If not is there any particular bit that is more of less tolerated for rough camping in exchange for the aforementioned £1 fee?
Back in the early days of 'does my bum look big in this?' she came round for her (then) 50p. She was wearing some kind of lederhosen and asked us it they made her bum look big. It's hard to keep a straight face at that time of morning, when you've just spluttered coffee down the front of your t-shirt.
lay-by below the Grochan? It's a lovely spot for about 3/4 tents, right next to the stream.
Mad Rosie'll get you there as well!
From the CC website on camping etc:
"Accommodation for 22; 6 bunks in members' room must be left for members. No external bookings on weekends and bank holidays. Superb camping (members only) next to the river."
