ABMSAC

We are a national UK mountaineering club with a strong interest in alpine mountaineering. As you can see from our meets programme and reports we are an active club, with a diverse and well attended range of meets. How to join us

George Starkey Hut
The hut is in Patterdale near Ullswater, at the heart of the Lake Districtís Eastern Fells. It is ideally placed for the High Street range to the East, whilst from the front there is a splendid view of Helvellyn and its neighbouring fells: to reach them, all you have to do is put on your boots and walk from the Hut.
There are rock climbing and mountain biking opportunities from the front door, canoeing and sailing on Ullswater and pony trekking locally.

For Hut bookings contact Marian Parsons

NEWS

The Journal has been published and sent to members on 2 June. I hope you all enjoy the new format. Many thanks to members who have sent in articles and photos. Editor.

From April Marian Parsons has taken on the role of the Hut Booking Secretary and Ed Bramley has taken on the Membership Secratary role.

Over 250 friends and climbers met up in Yeovil on Monday 24 March for the Memorial Service for Mike Pinney. It was a sad, but uplifting service. Many thanks to all the ABM members who attended. A full obituary is in the Journal. A memorial website has been set up.

The AGM and Annual Dinner was a sucess, despite the poor weather. Professor David Collins gave a very informative and interesting talk on his glacier research and comments on climate change. Many thanks to Brooke for another good Annual Dinner. Dates for next year will be confirmed soon.


HISTORICAL ARCHIVE

To start the archive off we have a copy of the "Inauguration of the Cabane Britannia, 1912.

Our first archived Journal to be released is from 1975.
