We welcome new members of all levels of experience.

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.

Lakes 2019 – Walking in a winter wonderland

In the run-up to the first meet of the year, it seemed likely that we would be spending a wet weekend sat in a Lakeside pub, by a roaring fire, contemplating the drizzle outside. Whilst not a totally unappealing prospect, it was with great pleasure and anticipation I found myself […]
