The next British Mountaineering Council Mid-Wales Area meeting will be on Monday, 19th November at 1930hrs. The agenda will be uploaded to the local area pages of the BMC website prior to the meeting. One definite item for discussion will be 'the identity of the BMC in Wales'. The meeting will be held in The White Lion, Machynlleth, which is both welcoming and convenient (separate meeting room, parking, simple food (provided) and bar).

It is good to see that folk have been getting out and using the new Central Wales ~ Elenydd guidebook. There has been plenty of activity at most of the crags and, in addition, new routes and problems have been added to a number of crags. Find out more by visiting our New Climbs Archive.
First ascent details for Elenydd, Y Rhinogydd, Cadair Idris, Rhobell Fawr, Yr Aran, Yr Arenig and Y Berwynion also welcomed, as well as feedback on existing climbs and problems and all other aspects of climbing in Central/Mid Wales.
Steep Stone is 'Maen Serth' in Welsh.
['maen' = stone and 'serth' = steep]
- the 'Steep Stone' -
is an evocative standing stone,
a singular monolith,
silent, solitary and old,
located on the very highest point of Esgair Dderw,
deep in Ellenith, the ancient heartland of the Cambrian Mountains.
Mysterious, secretive, enigmatic Elenydd.
“…as far as the eye can see, and twice as far again, is silence and solitude...”
Steep Stone's new Central Wales - Elenydd climbing guidebook has been entirely
written, photographed, designed, printed, bound and published in Elenydd.
Design, photography and artwork by Don Sargeant Graphics, Powys.
Ultra-high quality digital colour printing services by Cambrian Printers, Ceredigion.
