Torver

16th to 18th October

We are off to The Lakes again because we just can't get enough of the M6. No canvas accomodation for us though, a lovely warm and cosy climbing hut at the foot of Coniston Old Man. The parking for said luxury is a mere 1000 metres away but, on arrival, the distance flies by as you navigate the pitch dark boulder strewn ice crusted "track".

Contact your hut liaison officer, The Davester. He will be exuding an air of unquestionable sagacity.

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.

  • 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.
