Meets Calendar

Stacks Image 18

The Rucksack Club is privileged to have one of the biggest and most varied programme of meets of any British mountaineering club. Our outdoor meets programme has over 50 meets (weekends or longer) throughout the year. We have a regular programme of Wednesday evening climbing – outdoor during the summer months and indoor during winter – and there is a very active Wednesday Walkers group. In the winter months we have a regular mid-week indoor lecture programme from both members and invited national and international speakers.

    Speaker Andy Tomlinson: Trekking and climbing at altitude….. how to stay fit and well

    Rucksack Club member Andy Tomlinson has worked and travelled in Nepal many times over the last 30 years. He holds the Diploma in Mountain Medicine and his most recent visit to Nepal was in 2015 as a medical volunteer at the ‘International Porter Protection Group’ (IPPG) Rescue Post in the Gokyo Valley. He will cover all aspects of how to maximise staying fit and well, whilst trekking and climbing at altitude, drawing on his experiences of providing acute care to fellow travellers over the years. In addition he will cover issues related to porters, whose health and welfare is so often key to the overall success of such trips.

    Everybody Welcome: Members £4.00, Non-Members £6.00. TICKETS on the door.

  • Scottish Island Meet

    A846, Isle of Jura PA60 7XY, UK

    A846, Isle of Jura PA60 7XY, UK

    My intention this year is to visit the wild island of Jura. It is a superb island with a fascinating west coast line, the three ‘Paps’ and of course the infamous Gulf of Corryvreckan – if anybody fancies  swimming there! Plans are somewhat flexible at the
    moment until I get a better idea of numbers. We can travel by CalMac ferry from Kennacraig, or if we have sufficient numbers I can try and organise a charter boat from Crinan which would give us more options in terms of starting point and alternative pick up a few days later. Accommodation will probably be wild camping and or bothy. So although I appreciate that it is a few months away if at this stage you can let me know (by say the end of May) if you are interested in coming along I can get on with the details and trying to organise transport options.
