WEEKEND MEETS – CURRENT AT 4/1/22, SUBJECT TO CHANGE
We normally have a well planned programme offering weekend trips throughout the year for for climbing, walking and mountain biking.
During 2022 we may need to be flexible, with the possibility of weekend trips being finalised at short notice or rearranged.
Every month, the club organises a weekend meet, which form the core of the club’s activities.
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 – typically 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 outings, from local biking, climbing and walking day trips in the Peak District to ski touring, sports climbing 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.
