SOLIHULL MOUNTAINEERING CLUB MEETS SCHEDULE 2019-2020
Every month, the club organises a weekend meet, which form the core of the club’s activities.
The 2020 programme is still being finalised and will have plenty to offer for climbing, walking and mountain biking.
Summer meets are often camping, in the colder months we are generally based in a climbing club hut.
Dates given are the evenings for which accommodation is booked – so Friday and Saturday evening, with daytime activities continuing on the Sunday, with an extra night or 2 for Bank Holidays.
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. Bookings are open to members (who have priority) and prospective members, as well as friends of members. Costs are generally around £10 per person per night for a Mountaineering Club hut.
