Forthcoming Meets

Capel Curig Hut Weekend

27th to 29th January

A weekend away in one of our favourite stomping grounds. With the daylight hours being shorter the hut provides a chance to get an early start on the fells, depending on the previous nights frivolity levels.

Saturday night will see lashings of haggis and perhaps the odd snifter of whisky. Volunteer tater peelers will be in demand! Only 18 spaces available so book your spot with Mitch.

Torver Hut Weekend

24th to 26th March

A fantastic location in the heart of the Lake District. This is a well appointed hut in a lovely remote position on the shoulder of the Old Man of Conistion. Great fell walking terrain straight from the hut doorway plus climbing and scrambling on Dow Crag.

The parking is 1Km from the hut via an undulating rocky track. You will need to transport all your supplies into the hut so plan accordingly. Contact Bob Mitch if you have any queries.

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.
