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.

21 Apr 2014 | North Wales Group

For the past many years the North Wales group has opted to walk on Good Friday. Snowdonia on last year's walk was in the grip of a deep, deep freeze but with bright blue skies and everywhere glistening bright and white. This year we were again lucky to have sunshine and clear skies but it was warm with the colours of spring bursting forth....

Moelwyn Mawr

13 Apr 2014 | North Wales Group

Moelwyn Mawr is a mountain in Snowdonia, North Wales and forms part of the Moelwynion. From its summit, which directly overlooks the Vale of Ffestiniog, it affords spectacular views in all directions.

WikipediaIndustrial heritage, North Wales style, meant we were in for a walk through a number of long abandoned quarrying villages on the way up to Moelwyn Mawr....

Y Garn

3 Apr 2014 | North Wales Group

While the weather has turned for the better (if you ignore the current issue of high pollution levels), we still managed to find pockets of snow on our walk up Y Garn. A respectable 11am start from Ogwen Cottage seemed not respectable enough for some - mind, the changing of the clocks has been known to catch a few people out in the past....
