This is a skills meet, based at the George Starkey Hut, Patterdale, in the Lake District.

The focus will be on transferring techniques to Aspirant Members who wish to improve their alpine skills, and to Full Members in need of a refresher after a break from alpine climbing.

Informal guidance will be provided from more experienced members within the club, such as Nick Kekus, Sandy Allan, Victor Saunders and Rob Collister (the team will be confirmed nearer the time). .

Topics will range from what to put into your rucksack to some basic Alpine mountaineering skills
