Climbers are needed to drink a supply of free beer at a festival this weekend.

Organisers of the fourth Tremadog Festival in north Wales are appealing for help in clearing routes on Craig Bwlch y Moch. Anyone helping clear spring growth from climbs on the rock will get a free raffle ticket and a chance to win prizes from the British Mountaineering Council, DMM, Joe Brown’s V12, Pete’s Eats, Ground Up and the Climbers’ Club.

Free beer is on offer to volunteer climbers from the Porthmadog Purple Moose Brewery in an evening event which will also include an audio-visual show of big wall climbing in Malaysia, plus Climbing the Dragon’s Horns.

Martin Kocsis, BMC volunteers’ officer, said: “Just turn up with secateurs, patio knives, nut keys – anything to attack brambles, ivy and dandelions. Climb a route and give it a trim for a free raffle ticket which gets you into the prize draw.”

There is also free camping and bunkhouse accommodation and the day will be rounded off with a bonfire. Registration is for the event, happening on Saturday on Sunday, 24 and 25 April, is from 9.30am.

Further details are on the BMC website.
