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.

  • Climbing from High Moss

    All day
    08/06/2019-09/06/2019

    Hopefully the high crags will be in condition and we will be able to climb on Esk Buttress and/or Dow. For those who are not keen on a long approach walk (or if the weather is not so good on the fells) there is plenty scope on Wallowbarrow, Stonestar, Brandy Crag or Burnt Crag . If conditions are poor on Sunday there is always the option of stoppring off somewhere on the way home (e.g. Trowbarrow, Giggleswick, or even the wall at Kendal !) Hope you can make it.

  • Gogarth Meet

    All day
    15/06/2019-16/06/2019

    It was great to see so many friends and members at last year’s Rucksack Club Gogarth Meet – we broke all records with a turnout of 90 (yes, NINETY!) on the beach for the BBQ. Why change a winning formula? Amongst the many reasons to come along to this Club Classic Meet: Best Crag in the World; Tremendous scope to Climb / Walk / Bike / Paddle or Chill / Bird Watch or Sunbathe! Great social on the beach around the BBQ. Take note of the date – another shuffle to fit around the arrival and departure of the wet stuff the tides are dictating a slightly later than usual slot. Tide times are very amenable: Low Tide is at 15:50 on Saturday – just right for a leisurely start after breakfast at South Stack Cafe! In terms of logistics we will be sticking to the tried and trusted formula: We will be camping, as usual, at the Valley of the Rocks campsite at GR SH238806. The meet will kick off at 10:00 on Saturday at the South Stack café: GR SH207823. We’ll climb / walk / paddle / bike until our arms / legs / backsides are tired and then retire for a well-earned ‘sundowner’ on the beach at Porth Dafarch Beach: GR SH234800. This will be followed by a BBQ (Food at 7:30pm – no whingeing if you stay on the crag until dark and then there’s nothing left!) and bonfire. Sunday breakfast will also be at the South Stack café before more of the same… It’s helpful if you can let us know if you are coming – We will organise food and beer at the usual credit-crunch busting cost. Bring the family and friends – the more the merrier! How about making it A HUNDRED this year? Let us know if you need more directions, a climbing partner, or simply want to place an advanced order for veggie burgers. We look forward to seeing you all there. Keep an eye on the website or Facebook for updates and a possible early gathering.

  • Climbing Dovestones Tor

    A day’s climbing at Dovestone Tor (and/or bouldering at Back Tor nearby if that’s your thing). If you want gritstone without the polished holds, but with great views, this is the place. I will be at the crag from 9.00am for hopefully a lovely midsummer’s day of climbing. In case of poor weather, I will aim to have an alternative venue for eager climbers. All welcome to either turn up on the day or if you want to contact me beforehand.
