SOLIHULL MOUNTAINEERING CLUB MEETS SCHEDULE 2014

Every month, the club organises a weekend meet. Summer meets are often camping, in the colder months we are generally based in a climbing club hut. Normal weekend accommodation bookings are for both Friday and Saturday evenings, with daytime activities continuing on the Sunday.
In addition to this list, club members organise many more informal climbing and walking outings, from day trips in the Peak District to ski touring and alpine trips in Europe.
