Climbing on Brazen Buttress

Pembroke

28th to 31st August

Fantastic sea cliff climbing on arguably the best limestone in the UK. Or, wandering up and down the coast armed with picnic blanket, bucket and spade. Erm.... I mean... walking along challenging coastal terrain.

We need numbers in advance on this one so contact Dave Bowler to book your patch of grass.

Summer Midweek Climbing Programme

Posted: 01/04/15

Daylight hours are getting longer and the evenings are lovely and warm (!). Pasty skinned creatures are emerging from climbing walls, shambling on their spindly legs and trailing bloated forearms behind them. Carried on their chalky breath are the words "real rock".

This is what they seek.

Photo Archive

Posted: 18/03/15

The old photo gallery is no more. Therefore, so that partially fossilized members of the club can dribble real ale into their beards/frocks and reminisce about the good ol' days we have created a group on Flickr called "Wrekin Mountaineering Club - Archive". This will enable members to contribute their favourite photos from past club trips.

To add photos to this group you need to:-

  • Release your claw-like grip on your Leki poles/Moac.
  • Put on your "readers" (they are on top of your head).
  • Create a Flickr account.
  • Join the "Wrekin Mountaineering Club - Archive" group.

Now it is simply a matter of:-

  • Uploading photos to your account.
  • Adding your uploaded photos to the "Wrekin Mountaineering Club - Archive" group.
  • Trying to remember what you did with your Leki poles/Moac.

The bulletin board had been updated and in addition to a few more buttons to poke and prod, it will now scale down for a smaller viewport. i.e. it can be better viewed on a tablet or smart(arse)phone. Further enhancements will also be forthcoming.

  • Avatars can now be added to your profile on the BB.
  • Updated bulletin board from version 3.13 to 3.14.
  • Updated bulletin board from version 3.14 to 3.15.
