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.
With a winter season of trips to Scotland, Snowdonia and the Lake District upon us, here's an opportunity to come and ask us what to expect: if you are new to winter walking, climbing and mountaineering, or just want to freshen up on your knowledge, then here's your chance. We will look at gear, weather, navigation and route planning, avalanche awareness: in fact everything you need to know for when the snow and ice comes (we can always hope!!!) and things get a bit gnarly. The evening will be particularly tailored around what to expect on a Rockhopper winter trip, so please do bring along your questions. Help us to cut through the morning faff, be prepared, and manage your expectations.
We're teaming up with Mike's Table for the Rockhoppers Christmas dinner. Tickets are £30 each for a 3-course meal, and your ticket pays for the same experience for someone in need of a night out. We'll be mingling with other guests so prepare to be sociable!
