We usually have one social each month. These are often in the pub but in the summer we sometimes do something outdoors instead.

Orientiring course in Olympic park
Sun 30 Jan 2022

To meet old and new members alike. :)

Hi Everyone. Time to brush up on your orienteering skills or maybe just come for a coffee after.

We will be meeting in Queen Elizabeth park at this location ( , 51°32'39.9"N 0°01'03.3"W)

Time: 1pm - orienteering
Coffee time: 3 pm (Clarnico Club, Tandy Pl, London E20 3AS )

You can come with a group already set up (max 3 people) or you will be put into groups on location. The course is around 7km long so make sure you have enough time to complete it and join us for coffee afterward.

If you do no fancy running around the park on a Sunday morning then join us for a coffee and meet your fellow rockhoppers

Ups I fu**k up - Rockhoppers edition
Thu 24 Mar 2022

We have all made some mistakes in our mountaineering journey. Some of those mistakes are small, some are funny, some are well gross but definitely all memorable.

The evening will consist of short talks that will open a discussion around safety, comfort, and everything in between.

The best story or stories will win an award :) so it's definitely worth it.
