The BMC London & South East Area Meeting will take place at Ye Olde Cock Tavern, Holborn, central London on Thursday 1 June 2017, starting at 7.00pm
Come along to our regular gathering of climbers and walkers in the London and South East area. The evening includes a discussion of local and national issues, a guest speaker, a bar and food, and a prize draw raffle, so it should be a great night out.
BMC area meetings are run by volunteers and are your chance to join in with debate and influence decisions about what happens in your area as well as the rest of the country.
Guest speaker for the evening is George Cave.
Trying to climb in Tajikistan: In 1940, a Soviet military officer visited the AkBaikal valley in Tajikistan. Gazing up at a long ridgeline of five peaks, he declared “the passage of this route would have done credit to any master mountaineer”. Since then, the climb has never been attempted. In 2015 George Cave and four friends set out to try and prove themselves as master mountaineers. Between flooding their 4x4 in the river, getting kicked out of Russia without a visa and teaching an army of Tajik children the dance sequence to the macarena they had as many adventures off the mountains as they did on them.
