Welcome to Preston Mountaineering Club

Climbing and Hill Walking, Everywhere.

 

lisaOld and not so old members gathered for a brew at the Stickle Barn in Langdale before a sociable walk to celebrate the clubs 90th anniversary year

 

Interested in climbing, hill walking and great outdoor adventures, then have a look at the PMC. We regularly climb and hike the mountains, crags, and fells across the UK, including The Lakes, Wales, and Scotland, and often go even further, to the various higher beauty spots around the world. We love to walk and scramble, and especially to climb, by any means, often trad climbing but we sport climb, boulder, and even ice climb when we can. In winter months, if we can’t get out, then we climb indoors, usually at Preston’s West View Leisure Centre. On summer evenings we climb everything we can nearby.

The club’s active members come from across the whole of Lancashire, South Cumbria, and Greater Manchester, as well as Preston.

We also have an active walking group that is mainly made up of the retired section of the club and those who can take a day off. The Mid-Week Walking Group meets on the third Thursday of the month for lower-level walks in and around Lancashire, South Cumbria, and West Yorkshire and always starts with a café rendezvous. Walks tend to be around seven miles in length and are not strenuous.The second group is a Hill Walking group and meets on the first Thursday of the month during the summer months. The walks cover the hills of Lancashire, Yorkshire, and Lake District areas and tend to be between 7 to 10 miles plus in distance and cover more strenuous terrain.

We are currently looking to expand both walking groups so if you have time on your hands mid-week and love walking in our local countryside, come along and join us. To find out more {flexicontactplus Monthly_walking modal=600,600,"contact the walks co-ordinator here"}.As well as regular monthly meets, walking meets, and midweek climbing meets in summer club members organise frequent ad hoc weekends and longer trips both home and abroad. Members are active most weeks throughout the year. Feel free to talk to us about coming along or to find out more why not get in touch with our {flexicontactplus meetssec modal=600,600,"Meets Secretary"}
