    I like the new gallery!! Cool! Looking forward to all the year’s climbing pictures πŸ˜€

  3. Bob says:

    Hello Matt, how did Froggat go at the weekend? Myself and Lee (the guy i usually climb with at Big Rock) went to Horseshoe Quarry Saturday and had a good time despite the cold!!!

  4. Matthew says:


    Hi Bob,

    The Peak was great! I had a warm up at Birchen on Saturday afternoon and led a few routes there (Monument Gully Buttress being the stand out route of the day) and the to Froggatt where I met up with MKMC lot. It was good fun and managed to lead a few routes I’ve seconded before: Tody’s Wall & Three Pebble Slab. Alan led a good HVS called Avalanche Wall.

    We went up on Sunday (17/6/12) and its still the same. Got to love the GREAT British Summertime! Didn’t spoil our day either.

  6. Ant says:

    Shame it hasn’t proved to be the warm up to a good climbing year as yet. Feeling rustier than ever. Indian summer guaranteed

  7. Bob Stones says:

    A nice summary of an excellent weekend. I can thoroughly recommend the Snakes & Ladders Route in rain or shine as we had a superb day and there’s plenty more to explore.
    Haggis, neeps & tatties always go down a treat so thanks to all that cooked.
    Looking forward to getting back to North Wales for the February Meet.

  8. Alan says:

    It sounds as if you had a great time. I wish I could have been there, but sometimes life just gets in the way!

  9. Bob says:

    Another great weekend in North Wales. As much as I enjoyed my run on Sunday and a Snowdon summit all to myself, I was gutted not to be able to climb. The weather was stunning all day Sunday and pictures just dont do it justice.
    The North Ridge & Ridge Traverse of Crib Goch was one helluva struggle to get up to but well worth the effort, conditions were positively alpine so lots of fun!

  10. Alan says:

    An epic trip. Well done to everyone who survived the weekend!

  11. Bob Stones says:

    Excellent report Alan!
    Thoroughly enjoyed Arco and will most definitely go back.

  12. Bob Stones says:

    ’twas a great trip, so lucky with the weather especially Sunday. Thoroughly enjoyed myself so thanks to everyone for their company.
    Roll on December.

  13. Bob Stones says:

    Nice report Alan, I’m so glad at least one of us is eloquent enough to put some words together about our exploits!
    Can’t wait to go back.

  14. Alan says:

    I concur with Bob’s comments. The YMC cottage was really comfortable – almost too good for the hardened mountaineers that we all are!

  15. Alan says:

    A great weekend, if perhaps a little windy. Thanks to Andy and Emma for organising. Looking forward now to the January meet.

  16. Alan says:

    What a busy year the club has had and thanks for your report Andy. If 2014 is as successful as 2013, we’ll be doing really well.

  17. Bob Stones says:

    Sounds like a fun trip, shame I couldn’t make it.

    Will have to make up for at the Burns meet.

  18. Bob Stones says:

    A good year at the MKMC, thoroughly enjoyed myself yet again.

    2014 is going to be even better.

  19. alan says:

    I concur, it was a brilliant trip. Pembroke is a great area and definitely worth a re-visit in the not to distant future.

  20. alan says:

    Yet another excellent MKMC trip. Thanks for organising Kent.

  21. Bob Stones says:

    Really enjoyed this trip especially as we were so lucky with the weather.
    On Sunday Sophie & I actually went for a walk from Worth Matravers down to Winspit along the coastal path to Chapmans Pool for a quick dip before looping back to Worth for cream teas in the quaintest little tea room imaginable. After we met up with Lydia and Sam, who were climbing at Dancing Ledge, and we went for a swim in the pool there whilst enjoying the sunset………perfect!!

  22. Alan says:

    And a great time was had by all. Thanks for organising Andy.

  23. Alan says:

    Yet another successful meet and great to have so many enthusiastic new members along. Thanks for organising Andy.

  24. Alan says:

    Christmas dinner was amazing – thank you Kent and helpers.

  25. Alan says:

    It was a very good year – thank you to one and all for making it so. Next year will be even better. The hut meets are already filling up (and it’s not even 2016 yet) and the social life of the club is really starting to buzz.

  26. AlanW says:

    Sounds like an amazing trip, would loved to have joined you on it. Next time maybe??

  27. Alan says:

    A great weekend and a fantastic group of club members.

  28. AlanW says:

    Great to see lots of interest from indoor climbers venturing to the outdoors.

  29. Alan Mountford says:

    Thanks Alan for an excellent round-up of last years events – and you and the rest of the committee have made an excellent start to 2019. Thank you.

  30. Alan Mountford says:

    I’d endorse the last comment. It was a great weekend.

  31. Peter C says:

    Thanks Alan very good summary. I think it was 8 of us who ended up in Glencoe – and managed Castle Ridge on the Ben despite the conditions. Although it took a good 4.5 hours to do the climb πŸ™‚

  32. AlanW says:

    Sounds like a great trip, gutted I put my back out and had to give it a miss.

  33. AlanW says:

    Thanks for organising an excellent weekend Shane. Sorry you had to drink so much coffee on Sunday – Bob thanks for your speedy run, when you thought one of us was injured. Hero!!

  34. Bob says:

    You missed the plunge pool action!! The best feature of any club hut I’ve stayed in.

  35. Peter Coville says:

    Off to North Wales in early August for 10 days. Hopingto climb A Dream of White Horses

  36. Loz says:

    I had a great trip. Did anyone get a photo of the stag wandering down the road past the bus stop in Lochranza?

  37. AlanW says:

    I did but can’t get it to upload. If you want a copy DM me.

  38. peter coville says:

    Left Edge Route – Atlantic slabs Carnedd y Filliast. A fairly unique climb – very slabby, somewhat bold πŸ™‚ and a fun walk off.

  39. Alan W says:

  40. Peter Coville says:

    Hello all – we had a great trip to Scotland in September. Yes the weather was variable but we moved around to make the most of it and knocked out some amazing routes. Some photos attached – Tower Ridge; Agag’s Groove; Cioch Nose; Savage Slit and Fallout Corner; Ardverikie Wall. I’ll organise another trip next year – all you need to come is be fit; be a competent second and have your own mountain walking gear. Peter

  41. Alan W says:

    Alan, Dave and Michelle recently volunteered with the BMC Mend our Mountains initiative to clear some invasive Rhododendron bushes from the edges of Kinder Scout. They were working under the guidance of two National Trust Rangers. With their fellow volunteers they cleared nine large β€˜rubble’ bags of this invasive shrub.

  42. Peter says:

    Nice! Shows you can never predict the weather

  43. Kieran says:

    Was an absolutely great weekend. Plenty of fun to have been had by all.
