North Wales

The North Wales GOC is a very active, very friendly group of gay men, lesbians, bi-sexuals of all ages. With over 100 members we engage in many activities. Although our main focus is walking, we also have offered abseiling, underground exploration, scrambling, and camping and youth hostel trips. We also hold pub social nights and other indoor socialising events.

Events are held across the large North Wales area from Snowdonia to the coastal strip, from Anglesey to the Clwydians.

For more information regarding the North Wales GOC drop a line using the contact page, or by phone on 01 244 579 5 23.

In January 2010 our group featured in a BBC radio 4 recording. So we are famous now.

Our route of choice was the quieter Watkin Path, the South Face of Yr Wyddfa....

The Llanberis Quarries

4 Aug 2014 | North Wales Group

When Paul uses words like "tough" and "serious" to describe a walk he is leading, we have learnt in the North Wales group to take him seriously! When he says "bring a camera", we also know that he means it.

Llyn Eigiau is the lake above the village of Dolgarrog where, in 1925, the dam wall broke with the resultant floods killing 16 people in the village.For this walk, we were fortunately able to drive up a very narrow, twisting and steep road to park close to the lake....
