Socials

 

Social evenings are held on the third Wednesday 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.

Pub Climbing Quiz & Presentation Footsteps In Dolpo
Thu 20 Jan 2022

In 2014 five members of the LMC went on an expedition to the remote wild west of Nepal. Crossing three passes over 5000 metres they found themselves in a land where ancient Tibetan culture still exists. In these mountains are ancient temples, wolves and the elusive snow leopard.
Tonight Tony Hamza will show a video of this remarkable journey.

And finally we will have a Climbing Quiz with rockrun.com gift cards
1st place £25 gift card
2nd place 2X £10 gift card (First gift card is yours, second gift card to be given to whom ever you see fit, or whom ever bought you the most pints )
3rd place £10 gift card

Usual drinks from 7:30pm in the upstairs room
Presentation starts at 8pm followed by the Pub Climbing Quiz!
