Peak Area Meeting: 4 March

Come to our next (virtual) gathering of Peak District climbers and walkers and get involved in the BMC.

The next Peak Area Meeting will be on Thursday 4 March 2021, starting at 7.30pm, and will be an online meeting held via Zoom, with registration for the meeting via Eventbrite.

Area meetings are run by volunteers and provide an opportunity for you to discuss issues and influence decisions affecting climbers and walkers locally and nationally.

Guest speaker for the evening is Calum Muskett
Calum is going to speak about para-alpinism: climbing up big alpine faces and flying back down. Expect some aspirational bits of alpine rock and some amusing stories of returning to the ground.

All are welcome.

See the BMC Local Areas site for more details about the meeting

Absolutely loads of litter at so many climbing venues it's difficult to know where to start. Does anyone fancy a go at High Tor? It would require some fixed ropes down the steep valley sides. It really is in a horrible state.
