The LMC is a great way to get out into the mountains with fellow walkers and climbers! Rock climbing

An excellent day here in Norfolk. After a stunning sunrise on the farm, we went to the RSPB reserve at Titchwell. There I saw the Lesser Spotted Coppull Chatterbox (female – rare)!! Then a Marsh Harrier, a Spoonbill and several Avocets. Rare sights. Then back to make macaroni cheese. Tomorrow we’ll take a look at Norwich. See MoreSee Less

An urgent update on mountain conditions in #Chamonix following the recent warm weather:The heat is having a major impact on snow conditions, which are deteriorating rapidly (Aiguille du Tour, normal route on Mont Blanc, etc.) and becoming increasingly technical or even impracticable. The glaciers are also suffering and the snow bridges are weakened: there have been several crevasse falls recently (Dôme du Goûter, Col du Géant, Mont Maudit…)There has also been an upsurge in rock falls over the last few days in certain areas ("All aspects are affected, although the W, NW and N sides are predominant, and between 3300 and 3800m. Even ’solid' areas have been affected"): Grands Mulets, Cosmiques arête (on both sides), W face of Blaitière, Goûter couloir (a rescue on the morning of the 22nd following a major rock fall at 5:30AM), Courtes, Droites, Nant Blanc & Pic Sans Nom NW sides, access to the Durier hut from the Domes de Miage, Rochefort, Dent du Géant area, Aig. du Tacul, W face of the Drus, N face of the Grandes Jorasses (Croz spur).Make enquiries, adapt your choice of activities and outings and don't hesitate to postpone certain climbs.– Translated with kind permission from an original report by La Chamoniarde.
