Peak Area Meeting: 21 November

The next Peak Area Meeting will be on Wednesday 21 November 2018, starting at 7.30pm, at The Maynard, Main Road, Grindleford, S32 2HE

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.

Area AGM and Annual Quiz

The November meeting is also the area AGM and will include elections for various volunteer roles; and it just wouldn’t be the end of year meeting without the annual quiz. Rumour has it that this year’s quiz will include a general knowledge round, so brush up on your soap operas!

All are welcome.

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


As the climbing walls, crags and mountains start to open, we wanted to say thanks to every BMC member who supported us through the Coronavirus crisis.

From weekly Facebook Lives and GB Climbing home training videos, to our access team working to re-open the crags and fight for your mountain access, we couldn’t have made it without you.
