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.

You can contact us here or find us on Facebook here.

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.

Moving to Preston next month. If anyone wants to train regularly on lead at Preston Wall let me know. Can usually do any evening Wednesday - Friday, at least until summer arrives, then I’d rather be outside ⛰️🧗‍♀️🫶 ... See MoreSee Less

Anyone interested in buying these fleece lined Montane pants with detachable braces (for men or ladies) in medium. They are in excellent condition, worn about 3 times. They cost over 100 quid. Looking for about £70. Great for mountaineering in snow, and very cold conditions. They have an ankle cuff to stop snow from gathering.
Thanks for looking

Please support this event with your presence. Any newbies out there - this is a great chance to make contact with other members to chat and get to know who is who and get to know what’s going on within the club.

Sadly have a clash so can't make it 🙁

Hi everyone,

Is anyone interested in joining up for some grade 2 scrambles in the lakes and beyond? Looking to gain more knowledge as I’ve only done indoor climbing and grade 1’s up to now.

Cheers

Likewise, give me a shout if your thinking of heading up 👍🏼

Hi Jonathan and Nathan. There are plenty of club members keen on winter climbing up north if conditions are favourable! We also have winter meets to Scotland, the Lakes and North Wales, however to gain access to that kind of hallowed ground you'd have to join the club! Visit the website to do that!😉

This is TONIGHT folks!!

Top prizes! Needle Sports vouchers etc etc!

Yes, nice work from the indefatigable editor. 👏 It's brought on a personal reflection that not so long ago one might have featured more prominently in it than being restricted to featuring only on the back pages and in the pub! 😕😉😂

"Nutters" on the the front cover and inside. The content ratio is probably proportional to the participation. Although we probably need more pages devoted to beer

AHH thanks guys-its a pleasure to do it for you even though it drives me mad at times when things just won't go as they should! I enjoy it though and thanks to all who contribute their articles!

Some of our members are heading up to Kendal Wall tonight for a change! There may however still be a presence at Preston Wall. Please comment below or in the WhatsApp groups as to where you are heading so folks know there will be someone there to climb with!

Me neither, despite having tickets to use up. 🙄

Should be at Kendal Wall from 17:30ish

Chris Tribs, are you at Preston Wall tonight?
