The LMC is open to anyone who enjoys the mountains for walking, climbing, running, mountain biking, skiing or whatever other adventurous activities you can think of!
We meet every fortnight somewhere mountainous in the uk (and occasionally abroad) and we meet every Tuesday for a pint and a gossip in a good pub in Leeds and some of us can also be found at Leeds Wall (Tuesday) or CityBloc (Thursday) or The Depot on a regular basis over winter or when it's raining.
We hold a new members evening on the first Tuesday of every month:
Our next new members social will be on Tuesday (5th August) and will be held at The Palace from 9:30pm. So come along and meet the rest of the club!
All other Tuesday socials will be held at The Victoria from 9:30pm.
There are no prerequisites in terms of ability for membership and amongst the members we have a wide range of ability, experience and age. As long as you act responsibly regarding safety you can enjoy your chosen activity at the level you want.

|8th Aug 2014||C Langdale||Tom Jones||The jagged outlines of Crinkle Crags, Bow Fell and the Langdale Pikes at the head of Great Langdale are an awe-inspiring sight when seen against the dramatic U-shaped trough of the valley. This is a dramatic landscape built by volcanic activity, forged by ice and adapted for human use over centuries. On the other side of Lingmoor Fell is the much gentler terrain of Little Langdale - a verdant, pastoral valley containing the softened scars of 18th-century slate workings. (from golakes.co.uk)|

|31st August||D Walking - Kinder||John Armitage||Mermaid’s Pool is a small pool on Kinder Scout in Derbyshire, England, which, according to legend, is inhabited by a beautiful mermaid who can be seen if you look into the water at midnight on Easter Eve. It is also said that its water is salty due to its being connected by an underground passage to the Atlantic. Henry Kirke White wrote a poem about a young man who drowned in the pool after he had fallen in love with her. Another version describes her rather as a nymph who lives on Kinder Scout, and who bathes in the pool daily. This version describes how a local man to whom she took a liking was led by her to a nearby cavern, and whom she made immortal. This promise of immortality is said to apply to anyone who sees the mermaid on Easter Eve|

Other significant features include the swing bridge, which crosses the River Esk and the harbour, which is sheltered by the grade II listed East and West piers. The town's maritime heritage is commemorated by statues of Captain Cook and William Scoresby, as well as the whalebone arch that sits at the top of the West Cliff. The town also has a strong literary tradition and has featured in literary works, television and cinema, perhaps most famously in Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula.|
