Trips

Lundy 2015

Since joining the club the annual trip to Lundy has become a bit of an obsession of mine, there is just something about the isolation, commitment and fantastic rock that I just can’t get enough of. Somehow an entire year has passed since last years fantastic trip where we were blessed with wall to wall […]

July North Wales Trip

The July North Wales trip turned out to be ‘not too shabby’ a weekend.  A number of us arrived at the Nant Peris campsite throughout Friday evening, namely, Dave, Dave, Dan, Debbie, Paul, Emma, Chris and I, whilst Becky, Al, Jason and Sarah, who had turned up a day early resided at the Climbers Club […]

In praise of mis-spent youth

“You a hustler, boy?”  Dan was showing a suspiciously deep knowledge of the rules of pool, about which he only demurred: “I’ve just worked in a lot of pubs.” But when he finally hit the table, he cleaned up. Omar and I, “The Wind-gatherers,” had been blazing the baize since the first round of our […]

South Pembroke Trip

  With a good weather forecast for the weekend around 20 AMC members headed to Bosherston in South Pembroke for a weekends climbing, walking and relaxing. A number of people headed up early on Friday to make the most of the good weather. Steve went for a walk along the coast to check out some […]

Sun and Sand at St Buryan. AMC Cornwall Trip 2015

Again the AMC undertook their annual Easter trip to Cornwall. This year Di arranged fantastic weather as promised for all who ventured down south to enjoy. With Becky’s awning finally up we headed out Friday to the rock, even after a spot of rain, which failed to dampen our intentions. Myself, Carol and Susie had […]

Ski Trip February 2015

During the first week of February the club visited the picturesque resort of Canezei in the Dolomites for a week of skiing where 10 members including Rob, Rich, Izzy, Lucy, James, Pete, Louise, Peter, Julian and Anne assembled looking for some on and off piste action! The majority of the club stayed in the Traviata […]

Late Feb Scotland Trip

A friend recently asked me if I had emigrated to Scotland, as I have just been fortunate enough to spend another 10 days up there which finished with the annual club trip which was organised by Chris. By using weekends to my advantage I have now managed to spend 32 days away on winter mountaineering […]

February Snowdonia Trip

The St Valentines weekend saw the club head to Snowdonia for a hopefully fun filled weekend. The mid-February trip can often be unpredictable for weather, and the same was true again this time! With the snow line at around 800m, many hoped to gain some time on the white stuff. We were staying at a […]

Ski Touring in the Cairngorms

At the weekend while the club descended on the Lake District, Nick Russell and I decided to head up to Scotland to make the most of a good weather weekend up North. Our initial plans were to head out climbing, but last week the snow didn’t stop falling all week with constantly cold weather and […]
