/ CIC hut facilities ?
Anyone give any info on the above please ? - We're booked in for 5 days next week and, not having been in there before am trying to sort out food etc.
What are the cooking facilities - i.e. just gas hob or is there an oven too ?
I know it is wind powered but are there facilities for charging batteries/phones etc ?
Do you have to take your own toilet rolls/washing up stuff etc ?
Thanks guys (Anyone who replies I'll make them a brew if you're passing :) )
Firstly. I have never been in the CIC, and I never plan on staying in the place in my life. Secondly. I haven't climbed .5 have I. I might be ugly but I still pumped yer maw. Nudebook.
> and I never plan on staying in the place in my life.
Never ever say never, you never know!!
Are the "en suites" showers or baths?
Know wit to dae with my maw! "chance in a million" I'd say
Blah blah. Another UKC Alias Gangster. Grow a set of balls and post as yourself. Fud.
Christ! A simple post leads to this!
The CIC is basic but not THAT basic and the expansion has made it quite comfy. The cooking scrum can get interesting.
Take wet wipes!
You will have a great time and the space has been much improved with the extension, good company and good climbing. Have fun, Dave.

The other posts have covered everything else, but why they don't run a water pipe to the sink I don't know , our clubs own hut has water from the hill, granted you do need to have filters, and lamps that need maintenance , maybe that is it.
Wet wipes are better than washing in the freezing river, as mentioned. And of course it is a composting toilet.
It reminds me of primary school!
Just take your food and bog roll. Just spent a week in there, 2 season sleeping bag is plenty and don't forget ear plugs!!
I can't be the only one who thinks u talk shite on a constant basis?! only know it all climber I know who gets dragged up Grade 3s
The SMC website HUTS link says :-
"There is accommodation for 24 persons on Alpine platforms with mattresses. During the Winter six places are reserved each weekend for Members and their guests. Cooking and heating are by propane gas; lighting is electric (wind turbine). The hut has a drying room and two composting toilets (for hut occupants' use only). Water is taken from the outside standpipe."
Have a great time up there.

If there had been a vote to improve it , or remove it, I would have voted for remove it, but as they have gone for improve , I will use it.
That said there is nothing to stop anyone cooking on their own stove sleeping on the floor and generally making themselves less comfortable if that is what they want.
Last time we were up a lad slept outside, just came in for a seat and a cup of tea and a chat.
Thanks K, and also thanks to all other posters who replied.
Have a better idea now and we have planned to cook in groups as suggested :)
The kettles on !!
Thanks Jim :)
