Forthcoming Meets

Peak Weekend

29th April to 1st May

Our weekend assault on the Peak District is rapidly becoming a classic, but possibly not for the right reasons. Lots of crags to choose from be it grit or dare I say it - limestone. For the non-danglers, there are some lovely valleys and hillsides to explore in the area.

Start the day at the Yonderman Cafe opposite the campsite and, after a good day on the crag/fell, finish it (possibly literally) at the Three Stags' Heads adjacent to the campsite. Climbers don't like to walk far.

Contact Rich Ball should you need further encouragement. :)

If you are looking for outdoor inspiration throughout the dark and cold months, look no further than the HS Winter Lectures Series 2016/17. Climber Callum Muskett will be the first to kick off on the 8th November. Followed by a line up that is bound to have something to interest all, whether monkey, explorer or both.

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.
