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.

28th December 2014D Walking - pen-y-ghentTBC The Cumbric language Pen presumably meant 'hill' or 'head', but ghent is more obscure. It could be taken to be 'edge' or 'border'.The name Pen-y-ghent could therefore mean 'Hill on the border'.Alternatively, it could mean 'wind' or 'winds' – from the closest Welsh language translation as gwynt. Thus it might mean simply 'Head of the Winds'. It is also acceptable to write it as Pen y Ghent rather than Pen-y-Ghent.

18th January 2015D Walking - ScarhouseTBC Angram and Scar House were built to supply water to the Bradford area of West Yorkshire. Water from here is transferred to Chellow Heights via the Nidd Aqueduct using only gravity and no pumping. The dam contains over one million tonnes of masonry, it rises to 55 metres above the river and is almost 600 metres long. It was completed in 1936. The dam height is 71 m (233 ft). The reservoir is fed almost exclusively from Angram reservoir, which in turn is fed predominantly from the flanks of Great Whernside.
