Wild camping threatens access at Tremadog

Reports are coming through of wild camping and poor behaviour from a minority of climbers at the BMC owned Craig Bwlch y Moch.

Obviously it is essential that good relations are maintained with the neighbouring landowners, and with Eric Jones, the owner of the adjacent café and campsite.

Last week BMC Cymru Access and Conservation officer, Elfyn Jones made the following plea:

“Please help to maintain good relations at this important site by only parking at the cafe car park (which is available free when the cafe is shut), not camping wild below or at the crag itself, and please do not enter the fields below the crag and do not descend by crossing the fence at the top of the crag.”

To read more about this access-threatening issue, check out Elfyn’s report on the BMC website.

And don’t forget, this weekend is the Tremfest – a fun event and a chance for all climbers to give something back to the climbing community. Try and make it down if you can.

(Craig Bwlch y Moch is an important crag, home to celebrated classics such as Vector E2 5c and One Step in the Clouds VS 4c.)
