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.

7th December 2014D Walking - Ilkley MoorPaul Spinks Spencer had worked as a policemen for four years in another location, but to fulfill his wife’s wishes to be closer to her family, he had moved the family to Yorkshire. Spencer was taking a walk across the moor one December morning to his father-in-law’s house, and was hoping to take some photographs of the strange lights on the moor. He had loaded his camera with ASA rated film to get the best quality pictures he could in the less than perfect lighting conditions. He could not imagine what was to soon befall him.

28th December 2014D Walking - pen-y-ghentJohn Armitage 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.
