Participating in meets is what the club is all about. Meets are run by members, for members.
The club thrives by having members take an active interest in the meets that are run. To volunteer to steward a meet, or to suggest a new meet, please contact our meets secretary. The FAQ page offers advice on what to expect on a meet and guidelines for organising meets. Remember that if you have spotted potential for a new meet, the chances are high that others will also be interested!

Annual Welsh Dinner Meet with dinner at the Royal Victoria Hotel on the Saturday night.
After a gap of two years the Welsh Dinner meet returns. It’s a great opportunity for all members to get together, dust off their dancing
shoes and get out into the hills before the bleak mid-winter.
The meet runs over a weekend, with the usual opportunities to go out walking, scrambling or climbing on both Saturday and Sunday.
On Saturday evening, we provide transport from Fronwydyr and other, nearby local huts to the Royal Victoria Hotel in Llanberis for a three course dinner. This is followed by a Ceilidh with 'The Rumble Strips' who will ‘call’ the dances, so no previous knowledge of ceilidh dancing is required. The evening finishes just after midnight with transport back to the huts.
This year the Alpine Club are also holding their Welsh Dinner at the Royal Victoria
on the Saturday evening. LMC members and guests have been invited to join Alpine Club members at the hotel for an hour's session of short talks, together with a presentation, by Mick Fowler and Phil Jones, of 'Cascade' and 'Central Icefall Direct', in 1978 and 1979. This starts at 5:30pm. Please let the meet steward know if you wish to attend.
There is a maximum of 40 places for this Welsh Dinner weekend.
The three course meal, accommodation for Friday and Sat. nights, Sat.'s ceilidh
band and the taxi to/from the hut to the hotel costs £55 per person. Members are welcome to book for one guest if they wish.
The annual pre Christmas meet in Scotland.
Climb unpronounceable peaks in inclement weather and then celebrate in a nice hut/hostel over hot food and a wee dram of whiskey!
This meet is aimed for Winter walkers rather than winter climbers. However, attendees need to be able to use crampons and ice axe if necessary.
Accommodation is booked near the Spittal of Glenshee.
Arrive on Thursday 6th and depart on Sunday 9 December (3 bed nights).
Join a small LMC team who are planning a self-supported ascent of Aconcagua (6961m) in the Argentine Andes via the normal route.
Please note that due to the demanding nature of this trip, previous high-altitude and/or alpine experience is a pre-requisite. Please get in touch with the meet steward for more information if you are interested.More

The annual Gritstone Gallop. An ideal way to get fit for either the Alps or the Champagne Challenge.
But what is this Gallop? Allegedly used by various clubs as a pre-Alps training weekend the idea of the gallop is to climb one route at each of the eastern edges walking between them carrying all gear and food etc.
