Forthcoming Meets

Capel Curig Hut Weekend

22nd to 24th January

Make the drive more worthwhile and have a couple of days in our favourite stomping ground. Either get into the mountains a couple of hours earlier than usual or have a relaxed start to the day from this excellent accomodation.

In honour of a certain Mr Burns (from the lands we conquered in the north), haggis will be slain and cooked for Saturday's evening meal. Bring lashings of whisky to wash it down.

Contact Dave B for more information or to register your haggis preference.

DMM Carabiner Recall

Posted: 13/09/15

DMM have raised safety concerns about a potential fault with some of their carabiners. Details are in this document issued by the manufacturers. Many thanks to Rob A for bringing this to our attention.

Not to be outdone, Alistair M has upped the ante by providing this link giving details of the affected products and the nature of the "dysfunction". Cheers Al.

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.
