Just a reminder that you can sign up for the mystery meet on Tuesday, 10 pm, at the dram! I have no idea where we are going and neither will you until you get there. Or guess the clues that Will, Fergus, Caitlin and Roxy will be posting throughout the week! (But keep it hush not to spoil the surprise ;)) It maaaay be winter, everything crossed for a chilly week, so go prepared with warm clothes and winter stuff and do your best snowdance whilst also mentally preparing for rain instead of snow. Same deal as usual, you should be able to cook in the mystery location so dinner for sat and breakfast/lunch for sat and sun, and money for chips Friday night. Bring a head torch and compass and someone should hopefully print maps off for you all! See you Tuesday Stone x

Off to Wales this weekend? Here is a small sample of the things you can get up to! Do some research and make some plans (+back up plans!) WALKING -Snowdon. North wales most famous mountain, there are plenty of ways up and down varying in difficulty. -Glyders + Tryfan. Great mountains with some interesting rock formations such as the cantilever stone and the castle of the winds -Cnicht. The Matterhorn of Wales, nice walking and good views! There is also plenty of other walking adventures to be had around Tremadog and Llanberis SCRAMBLING -The North ridge of Tryfan is a classic scramble with a good photo opportunity at the top for the brave (or long legged)! http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/c.php?i=50491 -Crib Goch on Snowdon is another Welsh classic but be weary of the dusting of snow Snowdon just had. -Cneifion Arete in the Ogwen Valley. Harder scrambling with an alpine feel! http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/c.php?i=33981 BOULDERING -The Lanberis pass is the best spot in the area. Go get lost amidst the masses of Rhyolite boulders http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/book.php?id=631 CLIMBING -The climbs at Tremadog (Bwlch y Moch) start within 10 meters of the hut! Definitely one of the best places to climb. No waiting around for buses and high quality climbing! http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=221 -A large selection of climbing is available in the Ogwen Valley, with the classic multipitch being on the east face of Tryfan http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=491 and the Idwl Slabs http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=496 -Lots of climbing in the Llanberis pass! -For the slateheads in the club the Llanberis slate quarries are the UK’s best slate climbing. Sport and trad available (Tea available from Jess’ house as well!) http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=9 WET WEATHER PLANS -Rain will not spoil the fun in Lockwood’s chimney http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/c.php?i=2232 -Plus for the reader of Quarry Management a good game of “Snakes and Ladders” is to be had http://adventuresplusnorthwales.blogspot.co.uk/2009/10/snakes-and-ladders-and-tunnels.html -Or we can all just go for tea at Jess' IMPORTANT We are short on bus drivers so the lifts and drop offs will be hard to do, so you may have to wait around/ make your own way back to the hall. We will try and give lifts as early as possible so everyone can have fun. Bus drivers want to have fun as well though, so play fair! Gweld chi yno! /Will
WALES WOOOO! Ok here are the bus lists for the Wales meet. Please check if you are on this list and turn up at the GUU at 6pm on friday ready for a long road trip to the awesome Snowdonia! If it says NEED by your name then I need your matric... please comment or message me it! if you need to pay please pay me on the meet. What you should bring: headtorch, map, compass, walking boots, waterproofs, rucksack, first aid kit, WARM CLOTHES - it is now very cold if you hadnt noticed! There is some snow on the very tops of the hills in wales because it is COLD so gloves, scarves and hats are a must! As are thick socks and a warm sleeping bag/ even extra blankets/ people to spoon as we are staying in a barn-type bothy which is cold. Bring beds still - there are sleeping platforms but they arent very squishy. Sleeping bags, roll mats, pillows if you're fancy. Bring foooood - there is a small kitchen detatched from the bothy where you can make some food, or you could bring a stove but this isn't compulsory! If you sign up and want to cancel for some reason please tell me by Thursday 6pm to get your money back. Otherwise, see you Friday at six!

Just a reminder that sign-up for Wales is TONIGHT at DRAM! See previous post for details! ALSO you will probably need to beg/borrow/steal/share a stove, as the hall where we are going doesn't have a kitchen (and if we did book the kitchen, its kind of tiny!) So if you want a warm meal/ a brew, you will need to bring a stove :)
Final bus lists! Please check - this is the bus/car you are in for tomorrow! If you need to pay and are leaving from the GU try to get there 10 mins early so as not t delay busses/cars!

Hi Everyone, The Lakes Meet bus lists are below. As per, we’ll be meeting at 6pm on Friday at the GUU steps. If you get put in a car then it is up to you to arrange a pick-up time and location with your driver. Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need roads. Only mountains (and/or cake). Fortunately for us though, The Lakes has a good supply of both. We’ll be staying in the village hall in Threlkeld, near Keswick. This one even has a coffee shop attached! http://www.threlkeldvillagehall.org/ You will need: - Things to eat and money for chip shops (Gretna/Penrith) - Warm & Waterproof clothes. Especially waterproofs if everyone’s favourite Norwegian weather forecasting service is correct. - Sleeping bag & Roll mat. - Mountain things: map/compass/whistle/headtorch/drybag - Towel for drying - Dry clothes to change into - Dry thoughts - A dry sense of humour - Climbing stuff if you have it. - Alcohol to help pass the time/feed your dependency As usual the club gear will be coming for the ride which includes things like: rock shoes, harnesses, flux capacitors, bothy bags and helmets.

Hi all, Quick word about Dram! Apparently they have been finding empty bottles and cans left in the pub but not purchased there, obviously everyone likes to save money but if Dram get caught with outside alcohol in there then they will be fined loads and they'll be pretty understandably peeved with us. So essentially don't take in alcohol to Dram or we won't be allowed to go there anymore. Cheeers, Josh
Hi all, Fed up of two hour walk ins to soggy diffs? Want to climb hills with names you can actually pronounce? Have you ever wondered how to count sheep in Cumbrian? Then a GUM Club trip to the Lake District is just the thing for you! Sign up will take place this Tuesday (20th of October) at Dram at 10pm. Bring £5ers and arrive early to save yourself from death by queuing. See you Tuesday! Mike
Upcoming Meets (correct as of 16/10/15): Lakes (Threlkeld) 23-25 October Wales (Tremadog) 6-8 November - ((also Glenmore Lodge student safety seminar)) Roybridge 20-22 November Mystery 5-6 December Dundonnell (JMCS Smiddy) 8-10 January Glencoe 22-24 January
Hi guys! Hope everyone who is going to Torridon tonight is psyched!! Just a couple of things! Firstly, there will be a new system for borrowing club gear on meets. If you're needing to borrow club gear on the meet there will be a half an hour or so on Friday and Saturday evening where you will be able to sign out gear you need, then you'll need to sign it back in at the end of the day. You will not just be able to take it like on previous meets! Secondly, if any of guys still have club gear, please hand it back in! Thanks, Megan!
Important Wales update: WE HAVE NOT BOOKED THE KITCHEN! If you want hot meals this weekend you’ll need gas & a stove or gas and access to someone else’s stove. Alternatively, you should be able to eat at the café across the road if you ask them to stay open for you: “opening times are flexible depending on demand”. Gas can be bought at Cotswold Outdoors in Partick – there should definitely be a few stoves knocking about (but potentially a bit of a wait to use them). Sorry this is such short notice, I’m going to extend the refund drop out period to Midnight tonight. Mike
Hi all, Wales bus lists are below. To mix things up a bit (and because of stuff at the GUU) we’ll be meeting round the back of the Fraser building (where the buses live) at 6pm. Please get there on time as we’ve got a long drive ahead. Wales. Home of such cultural heavyweights like: Ivor the Engine, The Manic Street Preachers, Dylan Thomas, John Cale, Charlotte Church, The Free Wales Army and half of Gavin & Stacy. In short, Wales is kickass. We’ll be staying in two bunkbarns near Tremadog (http://www.ericjones-tremadog.co.uk/) in Snowdonia national park. They are high on mattresses, but low on heating so wrap up warm at night/find a friend to spoon. It does have the benefit of being opposite to an awesome café run by climbing legend Eric Jones (first British solo ascent of the north face of the Eiger) who also flew the Hindenberg 2.0 (or something) over Everest. Get your fat mouths around some hot, crispy toast for brek! Oh, and if you want to cancel then please let me know before 6pm on Thursday to get your money back! You will need: - Things to eat (there is a small kitchen) & money for yer tea on the way there and back - Warm clothes & Waterproofs. Snowdon attracts rain like Lloyd Llewellyn attracts MI5 agents. - Sleeping bag & roll matt (just in case you end up on a thin mattress) -Mountain things: map of Snowdonia, compass, drybag etc - HEADTORCH!! The clocks have gone back and winter is coming so make sure you all bring one – especially if you plan on doing something with Katie. Bikelights, laserpens, phones, glow sticks or that action man watch you got in a cereal box will not cut it. - Climbing stuff. Slate is fun. - Your preferred drug of choice. The club gear will also be coming along (helmets, rock shoes, harnesses etc) Bus lists: - If you want to be dropped off in Murano/Maryhill area then get in touch – I’m thinking of rejigging the lists a bit to save time on drop offs. - If you owe money then bring it to the meet.

Just a reminder that the Wales sign up will be taking place this Tuesday at Dram at 10pm. This is one you definitely don't want to miss! Slate, bunk-barns, sock-wrestling, slate, Tebay services, cinnamon toast, place names with far too many consonants, snakes & ladders, more slate, Lockwood's Chimney and the boulderer's paradise that is Llanberis pass all await. Welwn ni chi gyd yn y dafarn! Mike
There will be no membership sign ups at the Dram tonight. Normal service will resume next Tuesday.

Hi everyone, Just a reminder that the sign up for Torridon will take place this Tuesday (6th of October) at DRAM at 10pm. For those of you who are new to the club, I thought I'd say a few words about how signup will work this year. 1) To sign up for a meet you will need your money, matric number & membership card. 2) You can also sign up one additional person if you have their money, matric number & card 3) Sign up will take place at 10pm at DRAM. I aim to be sitting at the small table closest to the fire exit, so if you arrive early feel free to start queuing from there. If you can't see me, or don't know who I am then ask someone. 4) If someone says 'stop', goes limp, taps out sign up is over 5) One sign up at a time 6) No shirts, no shoes 7) Sign up will go on as long as it has to 8) If you are in a car you do not need to come to sign up, but will need to bring £15 to the meet 9) If there are no spaces in the minibuses or cars your name will be put on a reserve list. No money will be taken, but you’ll need to give your matric number & show your membership card. If you get called up you’ll need to bring your money to the meet. 10) If you want to cancel you must do so before 6pm on Thursday to get your money back. 11) An email will be sent out on Wednesday with the initial bus & car lists 12) A second email will be sent out on Thursday evening with the final bus & car lists. Car Drivers: please let me know your passenger list and whether you would be willing to take reserves. See you all on Tuesday Mike
Hi everyone, Thanks for coming along last night. For those for you who managed to get a place, here’s some info about the Torridon meet. As usual we’ll be meeting at 6pm at the GUU steps (hopefully this time there won’t be any memorial dinners for respected politicians for us to besmirch with our presence). If you’re in a car get in touch with your driver/passengers to arrange a pick up time & location (I can help with this). Please get there on time – Pirate code applies. We’re staying in the village hall in Kinlochewe (a short drive from Torridon). You will need: - Things to eat & £££ for the chip shop/co-op in Pitlochry on the way there and Aviemore on the way back. The kitchen at Kinlochewe is a bit bigger than Spean’s, but still expect chaos come dinner time. - Clothes. Specifically WARM and WATERPROOF clothes (as anyone who attended the Great Torridon Washout of 2014 will be able to tell you they come in handy). Boots too. - Sleeping things. It’s another village hall so roll mats & sleepings bags are required. - Map & Compass & Whistle & Headtorch – especially if you’re off out in a small group. The walks in Torridon tend to be long and Winter is coming. - Climbing stuff if you have it (and want to climb). - Psyche/ Game of Thrones references (we’re staying in Wester Ross!) (Once again the club gear will be in attendance. This includes things like: harnesses, rock shoes, bothy bags and helmets). This meet won’t be like the Freshers Meet as we won’t be announcing things to do. This means you’re in charge of your own weekend. Sound scary? Here’s some tips: 1) Talk to lots of people and find out what they’re doing. If you want to go with them then ask – if they’re going walking/scrambling they’ll almost never say no. 2) If you want to climb and haven’t the experience then it’ll be a little harder, but if you’re keen enough and ask nicely you should find someone to take you. 3) Get signed up to Digimap. It’s free for students and lets you print off Ordinate Survery maps. 4) If you’re an undergrad with shed loads of time on your hands then do some research for things to do. People like plans. 5) If you want to do something yourself but have no ideas then ask the older members. 6) If you are going out with people you don’t know don’t be afraid to ask how much experience they have. You need to be responsible for yourself after all. Missed out? Here’s some extra tips: - If you can’t get a place then keep trying – numbers drop dramatically as the year goes on. If you keep turning up you will get on a meet. - If you’re on the reserve list then check the Thursday email to see if you got called up. I was fourth reserve on the Lakes meet last year and still ended up going. People are fickle things and life is a serious of unexpected events. Bus Lists: Get in touch if you see anything amiss. If you owe money make sure you bring it on the meet! Fail, and my wrath will be terrible, my retribution swift. Bus 1 Name/Matric/Paid?

Heyooooo, good miserable Tuesday afternoon to all. Get yerselves to Dram tonight and warm up round the fire, all your clothes are probably soggy already so you may as well brave the rain and enjoy some pint shaped warmth and chat from the keenest crew in the West End.

If you were on the reserves list then give this a check as two wild cars appeared out of the tall grass.
