We are an active and friendly club of around 160 members, based on the Fylde Coast, Lancashire. We offer a warm welcome to walkers, climbers and mountaineers of all abilities, who share our enthusiasm for the outdoors.
If you would like to find out more, please explore the rest of the website, come along to one of our meets, including winter social meets in Poulton-le-Fylde.
The club meets regularly most weekends throughout the summer and winter months at venues around the UK and at the Club’s two huts, both of which are situated in the English Lake District.

Cracking 4 hour session LancasterWall. Great venue, well set routes for all abilities. Really bad location at the wrong side of lLancaster in a crappy industrial estate with shocking roads no lighting or signposts. Mediocre coffee , lack of homemade cakes and a bad playlist. Still tempted to go back the bouldering was ace. ... See MoreSee Less
I'll go and have a look! But not for 4 hours!! I'd have bad elbows!😲
All in Kalymnos got together for a gala dinner to wish me and D'Ale bon voyage home. Plus another few from the trip. 😊 ... See MoreSee Less
Wish I was there; next year!
Looks great. Maybe next year!
I think ITV failed to research how to Abseil. How not to use a figure 8 Emmerdale ... See MoreSee Less
That's how I always use one. "Maybe" that's where I've been going wrong
Last time I used a figure of 8, I had to stop halfway down and wrap the rope round my leg several times! Way too slick! It was at Mother Scarys!
A long time ago I thought I would try a classic abseil. With hindsight from the top of Goat Crag after doing Bitter Oasis was not my best idea, good job I was wearing sturdy trousers
Emmerdale figure 8 gives zero friction. They have just passed the rope through the big hole
I have done many classic abseil in winter just knowing the technique is so useful
Certainly a novel use of a fig 8
Anyway, none of you should be watching such tosh on TV!😂
I just love Emmerdale ❤🤣!
Morning all. Just looking at joining the FRA and there's a question of whether I'm a member of a UKA affiliated club, or a non UKA affiliated club, or neither. Is this a thing the FMC do? 🤔
TIA ... See MoreSee Less
We're affiliated to the BMC but not UKA, don't know if BMC are affiliated as part of their competition climbing role
Sorry Danial, what's the FRA? I've heard of FROYCT!😂
As far as I'm aware, we are only affiliated to the BMC. Not sure if that's classed as a non-UKA (UK athetics?) affiliated club?
Danial, join Bowland Fellrunners, laid back and very friendly!
I found the new wall !
It is insanely close to my house 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
Where abouts is it? Is it near the old Laura Ashley?
Very Poor choice of location for a wall.
FMC coven hard at work this weekend... ... See MoreSee Less
does the club have section just for walking ... See MoreSee Less
Yes. The club organise regular and ad-hock walks in addition to climbs , cave meetings and mountain bike rides
The club doesn’t have sections or compartments just the common bond for adventure (to whatever level) and camaraderie. We walk, scramble, climb, cave, swim, kayak, canoe, biking and more.
Walkers, who can find their way over the fells, are always welcome!
After the Gravel bike slides at the social I headed out to the dales on Friday. Settle, Malham, Mastiles Lane, Kilnsey, Arncliffe,Litton, stainforth and back to Settle. Mostly great quiet roads with the great off-road Mastiles Lane in the middle ... See MoreSee Less
That's a brilliant route! It think I did it the opposite way round
You and I once did about half of that and I was knackered! I think we also did something similar with Nick Hepburn along as well?

Much Mythos (probably too much eh Martin Dale?) was imbibed but I think these were Alfa on draught at the Street Food Bar, much loved of David Wood. 🤪
Hey, I'm the cover star of the latest FMC magazine! How exciting is that?
We didn't know the name or location of the route, but on seeing it enlarged, I can reveal that it is "Oktobermonde", 6c+ at Palionosis Bay, Kalymnos. It wasn't in the guide and I wasn't aware of the grade! It has since appeared on UKC logbooks. I just tried it out of interest and managed a clean ascent. It's pulling on razors! ... See MoreSee Less
Working weekend at Stair. Neil cleaned the oven and I measured the bogs whilst everyone else did lots of jobs. Then a quick lap up Little Chamonix and beers in the Swinny. ... See MoreSee Less
Great stuff dudes
Looks like a nice day, P***ed it down in Kalymnos this afternoon ☹️. Just managed to avoid a soaking 👍. But looking nice tomorrow 😀.
Now they tell me... ... See MoreSee Less
So when are they bringing in mandatory risk assessments..?🙄
Well I once rescued a couple off the top of one of the pinnacles and was told there should have been a warning sign saying how it was harder to get down than up (go figure).
Sadly, I won't be there tonight!😃
Afraid me neither. Still unwell. Not 'appy
There's a climb at today's Kalymnos crag made just for Simon Fenna - well, phonetically anyway. Plus Claire and Ron in the lead. ... See MoreSee Less
You lucky lucky bastards
Hi. Is anybody going up to Little Langdale soon as I could do with a few things dropping off please. Inbox me if you are and can! Cheers. ... See MoreSee Less

Brilliant nob - pretty sure I ain't seen some of these.

Robin Andrews and my mate Stu going down Notts II I think. Stu was the man who succeeded in being so scared that he turned round in a place the no human being could turn round ... See MoreSee Less
I can vouch for that, having been the only witness.

Great. Howard and I will be there.

Hi, does anyone in the club have any gear for sale suitable for snowboarding or generally warm and waterproof, including snow boots, to suit grandchildren aged 15 (5ft 11) and 12 years? They live in Kent, we are going to Aviemore and their southern softie clothes are unsuitable! ... See MoreSee Less
