Meet Report

Swanage 29th November 2014

November 29th, 2014 by

A few of us were tempted by the good weather forecast for a Saturday in November.  We arranged to meet at Durlston Head super early (well, about 30 mins earlier than usual) for 9:30 in order to make the most of the daylight.

Neil Gresham Masterclass

November 19th, 2014 by

Our Secretary organised a climbing masterclass for a lucky few Wessex (and SCC) members before the Sherpa lecture on the 8th November.  Neil Gresham and Ed Hamer braved the long road down to Calshot where they were faced with a motley selection of punters (and DAJ).

Summer BBQ

August 12th, 2014 by

The weekend of the BBQ was approaching: free beer was promised; there were rumours of cake; hot charcoal would be supplied; Doug had organised a local walk; a climbing venue would be announced; and the weather was set fine over Swanage, with Hurricane Bertha not due until Sunday….

Arran – May 2014 (by Clare Johnson)

July 14th, 2014 by

‘Arran is lovely … wish you were here.’  So we said on our postcards, and you should have been there because it really was!  The tourist guides claim Arran is Scotland in miniature and that is pretty spot on.

North Wales – May 2014 (by Max Streeton)

July 14th, 2014 by

Weather on the Saturday was rather damp with low cloud and rain forecast.  Our plan was not to have a plan, and we set off from Capel Curig up to the ridge to the Glyders to see how it looked.

Lowe Alpine Mountain Marathon 2014 (by Alan Blanchflower)

July 13th, 2014 by

While sitting around the campsite on the alps trip last year, Clare suggested that I should sign up for the LAMM – a 2-day mountain marathon, held at a secret location in the highlands of Scotland in June.

Font – May 2014 (by Anna Tonkin)

July 13th, 2014 by

“Do you fancy joining us for a week of bouldering in Font in May?” Well the dates clashed with the WMC Lakes meet (which is a particular favourite of mine that I like to go on) but this sounds interesting.

North Wales – Easter 2014 (by Max Streeton)

July 13th, 2014 by

Unusually for North Wales on a Bank Holiday the forecast was looking reasonable, at least for the first couple of days. This was probably why the meet was nearly fully booked.
