  • Climbing and Walking followed by the BMC Midlands area meeting

    Wednesday, 6th June 2018 at 6:30pm
    Location: Newton Linford Village Hall, Main Street, Newton Linford, Leicestershire, LE6 0AD

    The BMC Midlands area meeting is coming to Leicestershire and what's more instead of a speaker we are going to head out before the meeting itself for climbing and walking. We'd really like to see all club members take advantage of this opportunity to meet fellow climbers and walkers from across the BMC Midlands area and to attend the BMC area meeting.

    The location for this is the countryside in and around Bradgate Park, just off the M1 near Leicester. The actual area meeting will take place from 9-10pm in the Newton Linford Village Hall. But before the meeting we will have walking, bouldering and climbing on offer, see details below. As usual there will be free food, thanks to the BMC, served from 8:30pm in the village hall.

    Walking: Come and enjoy a walk in the lovely Bradgate Park. Our walking group will leave from the Village Hall in Newton Linford at 7pm sharp and we aim to be back around 8:15pm. Allowing time to enjoy a drink in the Bradgate Pub next to the village hall before the meeting.

    Bouldering: Less than 10 minutes’ drive from the Village Hall is Beacon Hill which has a range of boulder problems and short routes to suit all abilities. We aim to be at the crag from 6:30pm until 8:30pm. Bring your bouldering mat if you have one.

    Climbing: There are a number of crags in the area with some excellent climbing available. Take a look on UK Climbing and don't forget to check the latest access info on the BMC Regional Access Database. Remember to drag yourself away in time to make the start of the meeting at 9pm.

    This meeting provides the last opportunity before the BMC AGM on 16 June for members to get together and discuss the AGM resolutions and nominations.

    Friday, 8th June 2018 at 6pm - 5pm Sunday, 10th June
    Location: Dinorwic Mill Cottage, Tai Felin, Brynrefail, Caernarfon, Gwynedd

    Our first family meet of this year, a weekend where "the kids rule" at the hut. Previous hut weekends with the kids have involved staying up late, top/leading roping slate routes, going for scrambling adventures, paddling in streams, going Geocaching, and bouldering in the Pass. 

    The meet is aimed at (but not limited to) club members and their children. We aim to take our little adventurers into mountains during the day, and have a communal meal and a few board games on the Saturday night. There will likely be some bouldering too.

    Book your places with the hut secretary as normal. We'll co-ordinate the group meal nearer the time.

  • Dolomites trip

    Saturday, 1st September 2018 at 9am - 9am Saturday, 8th September
    Location: Dolomites, Italy

    Our summer trip to the Dolomites. We will be staying in Cortina at a campsite we've used before and has all the facilities we need and costs around £10 a night per head. 

    You'll probably want to fly. The closest are the Venice airports, which are under 2 hours drive from Cortina. Stansted to Venice Treviso is £71 and East Midlands to Milan Bergamo is £168 (Transfer time 4 hours 30 mins). We will need to hire a car if we fly, should be reasonable if we can stuff 3+ people in each car we need.
