In April the HMC went to Scotland and enjoyed a glorious varied amount of weather in the spectacular Glen Coe A new film was released showing the fun that was had – click here to watch the film. Over the Mayday bank holiday, members went to Pembroke to climb the sea cliffs.
The George Starkey Hut is in Patterdale near Ullswater, at the heart of the Lake District’s Eastern Fells. It is ideally placed for the High Street range to the East, whilst from the front there is a splendid view of Helvellyn and its neighbouring fells: to reach them, all you have to do is put on your boots and walk from the Hut.There is convenient local rock climbing at Castle Rock and Raven Crag in Thirlmere, Dove Crag in Dovedale, Scrubby Crag in Deepdale and Gowbarrow by Ullswater. Langdale and Dow Crag in the South West and Borrowdale to the North West are easily accessible. There are mountain biking opportunities from the front door, canoeing and sailing on Ullswater.
The HMC pub social is at the Three Horseshoes as usual from 8.30pm in the main bar at the Three Horseshoes, 612 Hatfield Road, Smallford, St Albans, Hertfordshire AL4 0HP. Come along and have a catch up with fellow members, make arrangements for trips, talk about your last adventures and meet prospective members.
2018 Himalaya Trek – Everest Region – 3 high pass trail – I will be at the pub social on Tuesday 30 May to talk about a 4 week trek in the Himalaya around April 2018 that I am planning. There is a good video on You Tube which you can view here of the similar route but my suggested plan is to walk the traditional route from Jiri rather than fly direct to Lukla which makes this an epic 4 week trek rather than three weeks. If this sounds interesting please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
Come and enjoy some of the best sports climbing in the UK, or if your a walker, enjoy the Jurassic coast and the sea air. Staying at Woodyhyde Campsite, with good facilities and a relaxed atmosphere and a great location for the sea cliffs.
