Following Government rules, the Caseg Fraith Hut is closed until 30 July, and after that, will only be open for single groups making weekend and long weekend bookings (Thursday/Friday - Saturday/Sunday nights). Being able to reopen the hut on 30 July is dependent on the Welsh Government confirming that accommodation with shared facilities will be able to re-open from 27 July.

 Caseg Fraith

 

Caseg Fraith was pupose-built in 1960 for the University of London Mountaineering Club (ULMC) and is situated 3.5 miles north-west of Capel Curig, just south of the A5, near the top of the pass between the Llugwy and Ogwen Valleys in Snowdonia. Situated near the base of Tryfan, it is ideal for walking on the Glyderau, Carneddau and Moel Siabod and for climbing on Tryfan and in Cwm Idwal. With transport, Llanberis, Cloggy and Tremadog are also within reach. Just bring your food, clothes, washing kit, a towel and a sleeping bag and pillow!

The hut is managed on behalf of ULMC by trustees and volunteers from its sister (or perhaps mother) club, the University of London Graduate Mountaineering Club (ULGMC).
