The Old Nat West Bank Account

After a lengthy struggle involving  visits to branches, correspondence and mail chasing around the long abandoned addresses of long abandoned treasurers, false starts, misunderstandings and the suppression of common sense and reason over many months, the old Nat West account is closed. The cluclub’s new account has received the balance owing....96p. So the party will be a short one!lSee More

Helping the Bury Jubilee Outdoor Pursuits Centre

Hi - does anyone feel able to respond to the appeal below?

Dave Dickson and I have been involved for a long time but I have now left the area and Dave is probably reaching his last fifty years of useful service (sorry to be so blunt, Dave).

Putting Something Back

If you are from near Bury (Lancashire) and love the outdoors, want to promote opportunities for young people to enjoy the Lakes at minimal cost, have enjoyed using the Bury…

High Mountain trip Next Year

I am keen to get to the Himalayas or perhaps the Andes next year. I'd prefer to go with trusted cronies - so if you might be keen on the same thing please let me know, otherwise I'll book on an Exodus trip (I had to explain to Caroline this is not a one way journey to Switzerland!) in October as an individual.

Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon 2016

Great to be out with Tony Hewitson this weekend in weather that was cold wet and windy (Sat) and not much better (Sun). Good navigation and steady pace got us halfway up the field. Up for next year with (hopefully) a strong MoB presence.

Tough on the Streets - cushy in the pub

Derek's Street Orienteering idea turned out to be an absolute cracker!

6 brave competitors took to Rammy's notorious roadways. All of them returned (5 on time). Undisputed champion was Nigel (590 points) closely followed by Elliot (500) with a great performance from veteran Dave Dixon (340) who still had the energy to pursue a spurious argument about a control being in someone's garden (come on Dave it was night time!). There were commendable performances by Barry and…

Thanks for the loan of the harnesses.
We missed the walk today as I spent longer getting my mum's new tv to work than I thought I would and I didn't ralise the drive was an hour away. However Amy and I made up for it with a great afternoon at Troy Quarry instead- using her new harness!

A Rite of passage

It was the Friday night of our February winter meet . We were the first to arrive at the Alex McIntyre hut near North Ballachulish and had ventured out in search of somewhere to eat . As we doubled back from a wrong turn in search of the Loch  Leven Hotel  John B took a call from Andy A suggesting the forecast for the following day favoured doing the  Aonach Eogach ridge. The conversation continued and the next thing I knew we were committed !

The following day we rose at…

Man Versus Horsepower

Man verses Horse
