Meets

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!

Kalymnos Climbing
9 Oct 2018 to 16 Oct 2018

Spend a holiday climbing the beautiful Greek island that is Kalymnos. The island is superbly equipped for climbing, donned as one of the safest places to climb in the world. Featuring approximately 3000 sport routes, there is a wealth of climbing across all the grades (single and multi-pitch) from easy routes for beginners to the extremely hard ones for experts.
And surrounded by crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean, dotted by beaches, watching the sun slip into the horizon isn’t a bad way to end the day either.

LMC Navigation meet with fireworks
2 Nov 2018 to 4 Nov 2018

A weekend run by club members to take people through navigation skills (Stephen Clark and others). Useful both for the overconfident hardened mountaineer, as well as the less experienced. Meet is run in November as nights are long, and weather is likely to be foul. But don't worry we help each other out, and everyone learns lots.

The weekend is focused on reading the map and using a compass. Even if you tend to rely on a GPS [these days] being able to read the map and make good navigation decisions in cold wet clag still vital! You’ll end up a better navigator, and be able to hold your own when others want to take you into the abyss.

The weekend is based on routes set up to learn skills. Includes night navigation (with gorse bushes), a fireworks spectacle (for those back before 10pm), and a Sunday navigation-led quiz (with prizes!).

Optional classroom session over a pint in a London pub on Monday 29 October. Contact me if you want to know more about the meet.
