Socials

UPDATE: We're back at The Devereux as our permanant Socials home from July 2019 

Social evenings are held on the third Thursday of each month except in December, where the Xmas calendar will dictate the socials. 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!

The Milk Lake March

THE MILK LAKE MARCH

Do you want all your dreams to come true? Hindus believe this is possible with a swim in the Milk Lake.

This evening Tony Hamza shows the video of his journey to the holy lake at 4,500 metres in the Everest region.

He travels with a gap year student through the foothills of Nepal to the base of the great Himalayan peaks.

Of course things don't go quite to plan!
