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 with our next one held at Wharf Chambers on the 1st April from 9pm.
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.

|May 2nd-4th 2014 (Bank Holiday)||H(13) Inbhirfhaolain Hut, Glen Etive, West Highlands||Rob Chuter||Booking Now Open Time to book! Please note the new address at the bottom of the contact details in the private section of the bulletin board. The hut in Glen Etive is a basic but comfortable climbing hut, sleeping 13 upstairs on a double sleeping platform with mattresses. It is well placed for Glencoe and the Etive hills with easy access to great walking and rock climbing (OS Grid Ref: NN158 507 Map: L/R 41). There is a composting toilet next door with great views to Beinn Starav (if the door is left open!). |

|16th May 2014||C Cadair Idris||Tom J||We will be camping below this wild peak in Wales. There are numerous legends about Cadair Idris. Some nearby lakes are supposed to be bottomless, and anyone who sleeps on its slopes alone will supposedly awaken either a madman or a poet. (from Wikipedia)|
|30th May 2014||C Buttermere||it is said that Jarl Buthar conducted a campaign of running resistance against the Norman invaders, from the time of William the Conqueror's Harrying of the North in 1069 right up until the early 12th century. It is claimed that the Cumbrians fought a guerrilla war against the Normans for almost half a century, attacking supply wagons, ambushing patrols and inflicting great losses upon them in terms of money, matériel and men. Do you think you want some? (from Wikipedia)|
