Done a search on here and the SMCC website but still no wiser.

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 :) )

In reply to Jim Haydock: Not been before but I do believe there is an oven in there. Can't say on anything else though, sure there will be someone along shortly to help you out.

In reply to Jim Haydock: Hi, 2 gas hobs & 1 full size cooker(with oven), cutlery, pots & pans... sockets to charge phone etc under kitchen worktops... take toilet roll.

In reply to Jim Haydock: ...also good drying room but occupied by local mouse so be careful what & where you hang you're gear... especially if any food in pockets or in packs.

In reply to Jim Haydock: ...there're are sockets under kitchen worktop between hobs, powered by batteries(wind power)... meant for spark for hobs but can be used to charge phone(don't tell everybody)... doesn't prevent hob being used but you'll need to use clicky lighter thing(supplied) to light hob meantime... don't forget to plug hob back in afterwards.

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!

In reply to Jim Haydock: Good advice about the toilet paper. You shouldn't need a pan scourer but it's not too much weight. Rember a strong plastic carrier bag for removing your trash. There are full cooking facilities. I would not advise depleting the batteries by using the sockets. Being technology free for 5 days is part of why you're there isn't it?

You will have a great time and the space has been much improved with the extension, good company and good climbing. Have fun, Dave.

Some internalexternal photos on this link.

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.

Jim
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.

In reply to Jim Haydock: Alternative footwear to your mountain boots might be handy- crocs are probably ideal for trips to the water pipe in the snow.

In reply to Jim Haydock: Best bet is to walk in in trainers path is good all the way now have stayed in hut numerous times ,gives you footwear to cut about hut in and saves feet for climbing. If there is a group of you share food saves weight and fighting over cooking space big pots in hut for spag boll chilli concarne ,have good time hope conditions are kind .
