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.

  • Scottish Island Meet

    All day
    12/10/2018-15/10/2018

    As advertised in the handbook I had intended the meet to be held on South Uist, but the ferry times make this very difficult to organise for a long weekend trip. We would have spent a lot more time travelling than actually at the Uisinis Bothy (GR 850333) so at the 11th hour I’ve decided to change plan. At the time of going to press I’m working on Plan B (& Plan C) but neither is confirmed as yet, so apologies for the lack of information at this stage. However the trip will probably be from Friday 12th October to Monday 15th. I will provide details in the near future via website and email. If you would like to register your interest now please do so and I will email you direct with details in due course.

  • Greenfield – Macclesfield

    All day
    20/10/2018

    This is the re-introduction of a fine Western Moorland traverse first reported in the club journals in April 1951.

    We will leave Greenfield train station at 0745 allowing connection from all the usual major Northern stations (via Piccadilly departing 0717).

    The provisional route is 35 miles heading up the Chew Valley to meet the Pennine Way at Laddow Rocks which it follows over Bleaklow, Snake Summit and Mill Hill before heading down William Clough to Tunstead.

    Tea and cake will be waiting at The Chalet, with the open-house kindly offered by Andy Howie.

    We will then continue onwards to Coombs Reservoir via Chinley Churn and Eccles Pike before heading over Windgather to Lamaload and onwards to arrive for a well earned pint in Macclesfield.

    Trains return out to the provinces from Macclesfield around 2130.

    The route presents several opportunities for people to join (or retire) to enjoy an abbreviated version of the day including at Snake Summit; Tunstead; Chinley.

    I will be posting a ‘Meet on a sheet’ with all details in early September.
