We have approximately 70 members, and organise scheduled walks for three levels –
A. - Multiple summits including scrambling. 4 to 7+ Hours. 900 to 1500 mtrs ascent.
B. - Single summit, some light scrambling. 3 to 5+ Hours. 600 to 1200 mtrs ascent.
C. - Trail walks up to about 500 meters altitude. 2 to 5+ Hours.
We are a Hillwalking Group, so people who join us need to have a reasonable level of fitness.
Members should have the proper gear (i.e. strong hiking boots, with waterproof outerwear)
We also encourage people to bring a complete change of clothes for the end of the walk, as we usually go to a pub or café for an hour or so afterwards.
Upon completing an Application Form ( download link below ), we allow prospective members to try out our Club and to join us for two walks without making a commitment.
