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.

  • Summer Meet, Lescun, Pyrenees

    All day
    04/08/2018-12/08/2018

    The Pyrenees meet planned for August, is still planned, however a few unfortunate events have required a change to the campsite. Since the original Lescun campsite is closed for refurbishment, we will be moving a few kilometres south on the Plateau de Lhers: http://www.gite-camping-lhers.com I have made some arrangements with the owner, there should be enough space for around 10 people, and there are a few more options around if a mass of Rucksackers were to suddenly arrive. So far 6 people (plus myself) have manifested their interest in coming. Everyone is very welcome! A few general updates: There have been a few massive storms and floodings in the area in the last month and as a result some roads have been heavily damaged, including some of the classical Tour de France passes. If you are interested in cycling, you might want to check the state of the roads in the area. In particular, the road to Gourette is still closed at the moment (but should be fixed in the next weeks) Some campsites have also closed due to the damages. I will be there from the 4th to the 11th or 12th. If you have any question/inquiry/threat contact me. I will probably try to organize a few outings to the classics around: Ossau normal route, Pic d’Anie walk, etc. but the schedule is very flexible as far as I am concerned. Alex Boureu

  • High Camp

    12:53 -12:54
    31/08/2018-02/09/2018

    Just back from a great weekend celebrating High Moss’s 50th. And as we sat on the steps, drinks in hand, reminiscing about past epics and looking forward to new adventures, I thought why not combine this year’s High Camp with another HM bash. So, this is an invitation for everyone who was at the party and for all you unfortunates who missed out first time round. Come and join me at High Moss and- if you will Harter Fell. The plan is for people to arrive Friday evening or Saturday morning. No communal meal on Friday though I’ll see what I can do about homemade cake, but do bring beer and whatever, so we can carry on with the High Moss celebrations. An afternoon walk up Harter Fell on Saturday to continue the festivities there, then back to HM for bacon butties etc on Sunday. And even if camping high is not your thing, come anyway there’s always plenty to do at High Moss. I’ve booked the hut for the whole weekend. Please let me know if you’re coming and whether you’re bunking at HM, camping in the garden, camper/caravanning at Turner Hall Farm or doing something different. Oh and if you say you’ll be there on Friday, I promise you’ll get some cake. Carole Smithies
