Forthcoming Meets

Pembroke Weekend

26th to 29th August

Pembroke offers some of the best climbing locations in Britain, with grades to suit all abilities. It also has the Pembroke coastal path and St. Davids Peninsula offers magnificent coastal scenery. Take a wet suit if you have one for some deep water soloing and a spot of coasteering. Well hard members will just be donning speedos and a pair of galoshes.

Contact Stu Sherwood to register your interest so that he can get an idea of numbers for the campsite.

Langdale Meet

23rd to 25th September

Staying at the National Trust campsite at the head of the Langdale valley this is a wonderful mountain playground. Exhilarating climbing for the monkeys on the higher crags of Pavey Ark and Gimmer Crag and the more accessible Raven Crag has lots of quality to offer. Plenty of summits and route possibilities for the explorers including England's highest if you fancy a slightly longer day. There are two pubs outside your tentflap and maybe even a campfire thrown in for good measure.

Contact Dave Bowler if you have any queries. Arrange car shares on the bulletin board/Facebook page.

Snowdonia Hut Weekend

4th to 6th November

On the doorstep to the Llanberis slate mines and at the toes of Elidir Fawr this cosy hut in the warm and inviting village of Deiniolen is a great location for both explorers and monkeys. There is a pub. There will be dominoes.

Contact Dave Bowler to bag your spot in the hut.

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.
