On the fourth Wednesday of the month we host a slideshow at The Old Kings Head, London Bridge, in the upstairs room (ask the bar staff for directions if you can’t find it). Our slideshows are usually by members, although occasionally we have speakers from outside the club. These cover a wide range of climbing and walking topics, from trips our members have been on to lectures by notable climbers and mountaineers. The show starts at 7:30pm and will generally finish about 9:30pm.
We sometimes organize other ad hoc socials, which will be added here once details are known; email notifications will also be sent.
In 1991 I heard a recording of a Tuvan nomad singing to calm a birthing camel. Ever since I have been "Trying to get to Tuva" to visit its throat-singing nomads and to climb its highest mountain Mongun-Tayga. This is the story of my as yet unfulfilled quest, although I did once get within sight of Tuva from remote peaks on the Mongolan/Russian/Chinese border. Expect camels, marmots, fermented horse milk and a total eclipse of the sun.
Get inspired and plan an expedition. We will be running a workshop to develop your ideas into possible and feasible expeditions. You might fancy a visit to the Greater Ranges, go cragging somewhere hot and exotic, or just plan a multi-day trek across the UK. We will look at logistics, resources, guides, funding, etc, but it's up to you to bring the ideas which will be developed in small groups into possible expeditions. Who knows, you might actually end up going there!
We know you are out there. If you would like to perform in front of a friendly audience here's your chance. It might be a song, you might play an instrument, read a poem you have written, show us some art you have made, do a stand-up routine, show us your dancing monkey! It will be an informal night of short performances. Go on... give it a go. It will be fun.
