This year we are combining the ever popular Winter Walks with the Winter Lecture series to deliver a spectacular Social Sunday! Either head out for the walk or boulder before food and the evening entertainment.

Winter Walk: Grindsbrook Clough & Jacob’s Ladder

Meet at the parking close to Barber Booth (108847) at 10.00am for 10.30am start. We’re going up Grindsbrook Clough and down Jacob’s Ladder – about 7 miles.

Bouldering: The Depot, Manchester
Arrive anytime after midday depending on how long you think your arms will last!

Winter Lecture: Everest The Old Way
The Norfolk Arms, Marple Bridge
6pm – 8pm

This evening John Driskell and David Peckett take us through the story of driving from Barnsley to Basecamp. Having saved for two years, 5 of them set off in Nov 1967 and reached Everest in March of the following year! They lay claim to the first recorded trek to Everest. In 2010 they returned – a very different journey to a very different basecamp! We’ll hear about the initial journey, way back when, as well as some musings on the more recent trip.
