Socials

UPDATE: 8th May 2019 - We're back at the Devereux Folks!!!

Social evenings are held on the third Thursday of each month except in December, which is on the second Thursday. We meet in the upstairs room of a pub called The Devereux at 20 Devereux Court, Temple, London WC2R 3JJ (map).

Socialising starts in the pub from 7pm and the main event kicks off at about 8pm in the upstairs room.

Sometimes we have a purely social evening or a quiz night, but socials are talks and slide or movie presentations by outside speakers or talented club members on climbing and mountaineering related topics.

In November, we have an ever popular annual dinner-dance at the Royal Victoria Hotel in Llanberis, Snowdonia. See the meets programme for more info!

Trekking and Climbing in Karakoram
Thu 23 May 2019

K2 Concordia Gondogoro La trek is considered to be one of the top 10 treks in the world. Concordia is the confluence of mighty Baltoro Glacier and Godwin-Austin Glacier and home to four of the fourteen 8000m peaks, hence it is often referred to as 'The Throne room of the Mountain Gods'. The idea was to combine this trek with an ascent of a 6000m peak. A small team lead by Zaheer set off in the summer of 2018 to achieve this goal... were they successful?

The journey took the team through stunning scenery and a strenuous walk on the longest glacier outside polar zones. An extension of the trip lead Zaheer to explore climbing opportunities in nearby areas.

Join us for drinks from 7pm and talk starts at 8pm
