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.
Alpine Club member Nick Smith talks about venturing beyond the Alps for the first time.
Nick is a keen trad climber and mountaineering club aficionado. Having climbed extensively in the UK and Alps he went into a frenzy and completed his first, second and third expeditions in just over a year. Come see some great photos, get inspired for mountain adventure and of course kick off the new year in traditional Rockhopper sociable fashion.
A Rockhopper shares his experiences with sea kayaking and suggests how to get involved.
Nigel Buckley, Alpine Club librarian, will canter through some of the curious goings on and artefacts collected over the club's last 162 years.
A brief introduction into UK Trad climbing: what you should know before going on the Rockhopper's novice meet.
