Socials

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.

Slideshow - Two Days Sweat and some Goat Saliva
Wed 28 Aug 2019

In June Chris Adye sent an email to members stating that "I am planning a hut to hut walking trip with a slight difference. I will be visiting the relatively quiet Ticino canton of southern Switzerland. The difference is that the route involves scrambling. As far as I can gather the scrambling is not technically hard, but the drops are impressive. I'm visualising something like Crib Goch. Accommodation is in small mountain cabins, and the area will not be crowded.So if you are an experienced scrambler with a good head for heights get in touch and I will mail you some details."

This slide show gives details of his adventures (including being attacked by a mob of hungry goats) and explains why you were wise not to respond!!

Now We Cycle
Wed 25 Sep 2019

We had a simple dream and we wondered what it would be like to travel the world by bicycle. Yet many times we have said to ourselves that it is too big and not for us. But then one day something changed. Rockhoppers club has played a very important part in this!
In 2017 April we departed from our home town by the Baltic sea. Our aim was to experience the world at first hand, learn about the earth we live in, meet people, make friends, at any cost avoid any kind of stress and do all that while cycling.
We have travelled halfway around the world and cycled 16000km. This trip has finished, but it is still adding to many lessons that we have learned. This journey was not easy, but we tell a happy story of two years traveling from Europe far into SE Asia
