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.

    All day
