The weekend costs just £160 and for that you get two nights accommodation and all your food, world class coaching and tuition on a huge variety of topics, plus you get to see guest speakers on Friday and Saturday night.
For a full list of the workshops on offer check out this UKC Article.
However the real beauty of this course is that you get to talk to vastly experienced climbers and mountain guides about any topic or technique you want to learn. It's a 'design your own course' weekend.
The 'goody bag' is a free give-away to everyone on the course and includes well over £100 of kit. So far we have several top quality Rockfax guidebooks, an Exped rucksack, vouchers, technical socks and more. Final goody bag details to be released next week.
And one last thing... The Bar. The Plas y Brenin bar, with its friendly atmosphere and stunning views of the Snowdon Horseshoe, is open every lunchtime and evening and is going to be full of like minded climbers, swapping stories, learning skills and having a great weekend.
