Forthcoming Meets

Peak District Hut Weekend (Crimbly Meet)

2nd to 4th December

This is new venue for a bit of a Christmas bash. After a day climbing on the gritstone (or wandering about, grumbling about the rain) we will be dragging what remains of our frozen hands and feet to a local hostelry for some nosh then back to the hut for the WMC Winter Indoor Olympics 2016.

There are quite a few names already down for this one but additional accomodation is available in the barn next door (well away from Mitchell's socks) so express your interest (or concerns) on the bulletin board / Facebook to book your bunk.

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.
