Meets Calendar

Good news…organised outdoor meets have recommenced in England.  The Committee agreed that organised single day Club Meets should recommence from March 29th with up to 20 participants.

BMC Guidance based on government policy must be followed. 

You will need to be logged in to access this information as it is held within the Members Only Documents area of the Website, here’s the link, and as a minimum please read the Meet Information Pack, document 2.

Information on the meets available will be added as members volunteer to co-ordinate a meet, see the calendar below.

————————————————————————————————————————————–

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.

  • Presidents Meet

    Presidents Meet

    All day
    15/05/2021

    Coordinator Andy Tomlinson.  

    I propose a climbing meet based at Stanage. Wherever we go there will be a wide selection of classic routes across all grades. I will provide an update on the exact venue by Wednesday 13th. I had originally proposed the Popular End, but am told by a local from Hathersage that parking at this area is extremely overstretched at present, even early so I am reconsidering.

    This meet will be two days before the government guidance changes, so we will need to limit numbers attending to 20.  I also need to have the names and mobile contact details of those attending, plus a note that you have read the Club guidance for attending meets [link here], via my mobile or email [details as per Handbook]. 

    I will check the forecast the day before and, if it looks inclement, I may well suggest a change of venue…late notices will be put on the website and WhatsApp climbing group.
