Weekly eNews - 10th February

Hello lovely hikers! :-)

I hope your week is off to a good start!

Firstly a resounding thank you to all the leaders and drivers that made our weekend in the Cairngorms such a success! The weather was incredible, some epic routes were completed and some important skills learned (which some of us got to put into practice!). What a fantastic trip! :-)


***Sign up for Staffordshire peaks and Glencoe***


-         1.30pm, Wednesday 11th February, room 3 in the Union

Firstly this Sunday’s hike to the Roaches (Staffordshire Peaks) will cost £10. ‘The Roaches is a rocky outcrop extending for miles along the Staffordshire skyline. Surrounded by lots of woodland. This is a place for escaping Leeds and having a good wander. In the white peak area of the Peak District.’ Don’t miss out on this beautiful hike! Make sure you’re at sign up :-)


Secondly, our last winter trip of the year to the one and only Glencoe! The trip will run from the 19th – 22nd February.

On this trip we're based around Ben Nevis, the Mamores, Aonach Eagach and Buchaille Etive Mor. Again there will be the chance to learn and refresh winter skills and to do some epic winter routes. 

In order to attend this trip you must have been on at least one weekend trip with the club before and have attended the winter briefing.

Please also come knowing whether you’d like to go on the Thursday evening or the Friday evening as the trip will be taking two loads of people.

The trip will cost £65 for two nights and £75 for three.

Please bring your winter boots (must be at least B2 rated) for crampon fitting and see the gear page on our website because having the right kit is critical in winter. Hope to see lots of you there! :-)




***Disney Otley Run!***

Yes it’s that time of year again! Swap your boots for your fancy dress and lets do a pub crawl! This time the theme is Disney! Be as inventive as you can and we will see you at 5.30pm in Woodies Ale House!


That’s everything thank you and hope to see lots of you at sign up! :-)


Have a great week!
