FMC Evening Climbing

Denham Quarry, Thursday night.

This Thursday evening sees the first outdoor evening meet of the Summer season take place at our nearest climbable rock, Denham Quarry. All are welcome to attend. We usually say that any members turning up will get to have a climb, if they so wish. We do not however offer instruction, so if you feel you may need some, we would point you in the direction of the courses offered by climbing walls and also outdoor centres such as Plas Y Brenin in North Wales.
After climbing, we usually go to the pub which for Denham will be The Red Lion at Wheelton.
Currently, the weather on Thursday looks to be the best of the week with dry conditions forecast. There are plenty of routes of all grades from Moderate up to E5 so lots for everyone! As usual, please comment below or on the FMC Cragging Whatsapp group if you intend to turn up and what time. The meet is weather dependent so please keep an eye on here or the Whatsapp groups for any changes that may occur if the weather does not play ball. Hope to see lots of you at the crag!

Ahead of the return to Little Langdale for the annual FMC 'who can con the handicapper the most' Fell Race, I've been compiling all of the past results for the LL route but have a few years missing. If anybody has the info on the runners/results for the following years I can fill the gaps: 1979, 1980, 1983, 1984, 1993, 1995. I know the names of the 1st home and the fastest for most of them, just not who else ran and the actual times. ... See MoreSee Less

“YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU.”
28th February 2024 at the Old Town Hall it’s the AGM.
It’s a great opportunity to interrogate, Hassle and Heckle the committee plus free Pie and peas. What is there not to like?
But seriously folks, we do need a minimum amount of members to attend in order for the meeting to go ahead so please join in if you can, either in person of via zoom.
Grub at 7.30 and if there’s any pies left save them for throwing at the committee from 8 o’clock onwards.

Hopefully you've just put the social night in your diary. Break it gently to your partner and please do invite them which should soften the blow a little. **However, don't forget tomorrow is the PUB MEET at the Poulton Elk. I'll be going by train from Ansdell Station, changing at Kirkham.** ... See MoreSee Less
