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.

  • Walking/Running Meet at Beudy Mawr

    All day
    01/12/2019-01/12/2019

    Join me for another Walking/Running Meet at Beudy Mawr. The meet is a week later than usual and with Snowdonia weather always anxious to surprise us, who knows what conditions we will encounter. Plan A on Saturday for the walkers is a stroll up Cwm Padrig from Nant Peris followed by an ascent of Glyder Fawr and Glyder Fach before descending to Pen Y Pas. Plan B will be our bad weather alternative and will be decided on the day. Runners route to be decided by attendees but I am certain it will be tough and thoroughly enjoyable. Sunday is usually a free for all. There will be plenty of food for carnivores and vegetarians. Just bring your own wine and spirits.

  • Walk & Hotpot Supper

    All day
    07/12/2019

    This year we are making a circular tour of the eastern end of Hope Valley, including Bretton Clough, Higgar Tor and Stanage Edge. Here we can be assured of excellent walking choices that can be tailored to your liking on the day.

    The Walk: If you’d like to convene for breakfast/tea/ coffee etc, the Rest Café in the Anglers Rest is open from 9.00am. Free parking in the pub car park. The main event is to walk from the Anglers Rest leaving at 10am. This year we will walk via Shatton Moor to Bretton Clough. Below Pot Hall we cross the River Noe at The Plough and find our way via paths to Millstone Edge and Higgar Tor. Stanage Edge to Crow Chin gives us our best chance to reminisce on the climbs we never did/fell off/or excelled, before crossing Bamford Moor and descending Bamford Clough. We should all be back in the Anglers Rest by 4.30pm for ‘early doors’ drinks. NB. Fast parties might like to descend to Yorkshire Bridge and make a rapid ascent of Win Hill! A map will be sent online to all confirmed attending the Meet. NB. Bad weather options: at The Plough we can return to Bamford via Thorpe Farm and Hurst Clough Lane, or upstream along the River Noe to Shatton and Bamford.

    The Hotpot: Hotpot with veggie option and Apple Crumble is served from 5.15pm. Cost £10.00 payable to Jan Beatty on the day. Please confirm your order via text or email to John Beatty. The Christmas Quiz Our usual ‘terribly hard’ Christmas Quiz will convene during the dessert course of the evening. Prizes include John Muir Trust Diaries and Calendars. I hope you can all come along to the walk or just the Hotpot, and make it a splendid day out.

  • Bradfield Dale Revisited

    All day
    14/12/2019

    After unavoidable postponements in 2017 and last year, it is hoped that nothing will prevent this winter meet from finally taking place. Weather permitting, we shall complement the Bradfield Dale walk we did in December 2016 (March 2017 Meetstaff), going this year above Agden Dam in order to visit the Rocher, High Bradfield and Roger Redfern’s “view of views”. The option of returning via Ughill to extend our tour can be considered on the day. Start at 10 am from Low Bradfield car park, The Sands SK 262 920. Post-walk facilities/refreshment will be available nearby, depending on the time taken and the mood of the group.
