The club’s Christmas meet this year was held at Brathray Exploration Group Trust Hut in Lake District near Ambleside.
The Friday and Saturday were cold and snowy allowing MKMC members to get the first taste of winter in the fells of the Lake District . Several hills and walking routes were taken around Langdale including the Pike of Blisco & the Crinkle Crags plus a brave team who went to Paval Ark and tackled “the Buttress of Doom” as the called it in very dodge snow conditions. Saturday evening we had an excellent Xmas dinner cooked by Kent who yet again surpassed himself. Sunday saw the return of the wind &rain to batter the Lakes despite this a hardy bunch did a circuit of the Old Man of Coniston.
