See below for details of upcoming socials.
We usually have one social each month. These are often in the pub but in the summer we sometimes do something outdoors instead.
During times of high Covid-19 circulation we may choose to have an outdoor activity rather than meet in the pub.
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.
To inform, educate and entertain. Line-up TBC.
