Contact Stephen Gibbons
Saturday 27 June 2020
Due to the Corona virus situation this meet has been cancelled 

27th June to 11th July
A two-week early-season meet for full members, and competent independent aspirant members looking to gain more experience.  It is aimed at those wanting to complete routes at up to AD standard, but all are more than welcome.
The meet will aim to combine two locations, either side of the Rhone Valley: The Oberaletsch area in the south of the Bernese Oberland, then the Zermatt area with many potential 4000m objectives.
Beginning in Brig on Saturday 27th June, 2020, and likely moving to Randa in the Mattertal on Saturday 4th July.
