For the fifth consecutive year, CUHWC returned to the Pinnacle Club's wonderful Emily Kelly Hut at the base of Snowdon for our Easter Vacation Trip. The majority of people travelled from Cambridge for the trip, with the highest number staying over the weekend, but some members were present for each day of the trip. Of those attending, only one was an undergraduate, contrasting rather starkly with last year's equivalent trip when undergraduates were almost in majority.
We enjoyed a mix of weather, with a couple of days being blessed with stunningly clear skies and another couple seeing a fair amount of cloud and rain. We were nevertheless undeterred. Between us, we visited Snowdon several times using a variety of routes, the peaks of the Glyders, some of the less frequented western Carneddau hills, a couple of valley walks and an attempt on Moel Siabod, which was sadly rained off. There was the standard complement of high-quality evening meals and socialising (not to mention a number of involved discussions on, for example, tax, politics and British politeness).
Taken together, all of the above rendered this yet another memorable trip to Cwm Dyli for CUHWC, even if this year's was less popular than some of the previous trips; we look ahead to our next visit here with a great deal of optimism.
