Hiking

Through the course of a year we go mountain and hill walking in summer and winter conditions and coastal walking in the summer. There are no official walk leaders but the more experienced members will often suggest a route; bring your own maps along and get involved in the planning. […]

Mountaineering

Mountaineering can range from walking and scrambling un-roped on higher peaks where the route may not follow a distinct, wide path to technical snow and rock routes in the Alps. An example of scrambling in the UK would be the Crib Goch ridge on Snowdon.

Peaks 2018 Round 2

Making the best of grit… Trudging up the endless curve of the youth hostel drive, through ceaseless rain and battling a bitter wind I reached what appeared to be the setting of a Victorian Gothic Novel. Disappointingly there was no eerie bell to ring so I stepped straight in out […]
