On the first Tuesday of every month the meet is always to Almscliff crag. After climbing we usually go to a nearby pub, for the first Tuesday at Almscliff this is dedicated a new members social and is held in the Hunters Inn near Pool in Wharfedale (unless it's raining).

We also have regular walking and climbing meets on Saturdays or Sundays, often to the Peak District or the Yorkshire Dales. There are also occaisional hut meets during the summer months.

31st Mar 2019 Day Meet.
Boulsworth Hill from Wycoller, Colne, Lancashire (Walk)
Meet Leader: TBC
A more strenuous walk than what we will have been used to over the winter, however not really due to height gain but more because of the fact you will definitely want gaiters! An entertaining walk though of about 9 miles taking in Lad Law (Boulsworth Hill). Lovely views over to Pendle Hill from the summit. Great for those who love a good rambling trudge over unadulterated wild moor.
