Easter Cornwall Trip 2018

Arriving late on Thursday in the darkness and crunching through frozen grass to our reserved empty field, we were in for a cold night. I’d had a slew of drop-out emails and the weather forecast for the coming days wasn’t a favourable one, with a band of low pressure coming in from the west. Only […]

Lake District trip Jan 2018

The first club trip of 2018 saw 19 enthusiastic club members heading up to Patterdale to stay in the always popular George Starkey hut. Al and I had been watching the weather forecast and social media posts all week – every day the weekend forecast and conditions seemed to change – cold dry alternating with […]

Climbing the Old Man of Stoer

We had been talking about a trip up to the Old Man of Stoer for about six years. This year we decided to just book some flights for mid September and hope the weather was favourable. We had a five day trip, giving three potential climbing days. Initial optimism in the forecast turned to look […]

North Wales trip report

A very enjoyable weekend was had by numerous AMC members in North Wales. Most stayed in the Shrewsbury Mountaineering club hut in Deiniolen with an overflow in Bethesda, staying with the local AMC residents! There was a disappointing lack of snow and generally a thick fog, but the sun popped its head out on occasion. On Saturday the majority of […]

Mid Wales trip report

The Mid Wales trip had a good turnout with Roz, Sam, Chris, Dave, JP, Nigel, Mike, Elaine, Nick, Alex, Andrew, Dan, Niall, Kevin, Dave and Jake turning up at various points over the bank holiday weekend. We stayed in a lovely campsite in Dinas Mawddwy surrounded by what seemed like 50 free range chickens! After […]

Easter Trip Report

The Easter weekend meant that it was time for the annual AMC trip to St Buryan near the very tip of Cornwall. A strong contingent of 24 members made the trip South-West for what was the first camping trip of the year (too early according to some!) Fortunately we were blessed with good weather that […]

Lundy Trip, 17-20 September 2016

First of all, a little bit of background on Lundy… with a bit of help from Landmark Trust: ‘Lundy lies off the coast of North Devon, where the Atlantic ocean meets the Bristol Channel with nothing between it and America, a granite outcrop, three miles long and half a mile wide. The first adventure, for […]

Stanage Trip – July 2016

With a slightly dodgy forecast and lots of our members away at the seaside, the numbers for the Stanage trip weren’t up to their usual highs. However, with a ton of optimism, myself, Jake and Scott headed up to the North Lees campsite for a taste of gritstone action. The forecast said rain from Saturday […]
