Leeds Mountaineering Club - Home Page

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 on the first tuesday of the month for a pint and a gossip in The Palace 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 at The Palace from 9:30pm. So come along and meet the rest of the club!

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.

15th March 2015D Walking - Barden Moor - Rylstone John Armitage Rylstone Cross stands high on Rylstone Fell overlooking the parish from the south-east. Originally it was a large stone in the form of a man and was known as 'The Stone Man'. A wooden cross was erected on the top of the stone pillar to commemorate 'The Peace of Paris', the date on the back is 1885 and the initials DD and TB which are carved on it signify the Duke of Devonshire and T. Broughton, who was land agent to the Duke. The wooden structure has been renewed several times, the last occasion being after the severe winter of 1947. The present cross was rebuilt in 1997.
