Derwent Mountaineering Club Diary

Notes The aim is to have a scheduled climbing meet every other Wednesday and Sunday. This leaves flexibility for members to choose their own venues on alternate weeks or for a scheduled meet to be shifted to the next week if bad weather stops play.

Wed evening climbing:


Sunday climbing:

Meet at the crag at 5pm onwards


Meet at the car park at 10 am

  Walking meets take place on the last Sunday of each month, except in May & August due to the bank holiday.
