COVID-19 update 14 July 2020
After careful consideration, the Committee have agreed plans proposed by our Hut Sub-Committee for the partial reopening of our huts.
Since the Scottish Government started to move into the latter part of Phase 2 of easing restrictions, we have been working hard to plan for the coming months, with government, governing bodies and industry guidance all being brought into the mix. Probably the hardest part is also to plan around how this guidance may change over the coming months. One thing is certain, hill and hut life will be different for the foreseeable future.
The LSCC is going to take a phased approach to reopening our huts. This is intended to give us the flexibility to adapt new practices as guidelines change and to give some measure of certainty to our members, fellow clubs and other hut users.
LSCC huts will reopen later in July through to 24 September for members only on a very restricted basis (long weekends only and very limited number of persons at any one time). This gives us a period of time to trial the many new protocols and processes we are putting into place and to make changes as required.
The Committee then intends to undertake a review in mid-September to assess what further easing of hut usage can be put in place, including opening up to other club bookings.
Hut Booking & Finance Secretaries will be in touch with parties who have bookings to the end of September. For bookings beyond that date, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the B&F Sec for the hut you have booked.
For clubs holding meets, as well as our own club, much of this may be expected but, in any event, is bound to bring some disappointment and we appreciate your understanding and patience.
Welcome to the Ladies Scottish Climbing Club
the oldest all-women's mountaineering club still in existence, founded in 1908.
Since its foundation in 1908 the aim of the Ladies Scottish Climbing Club (LSCC) has been 'to bring together women who are committed to mountaineering in Scotland and to encourage all aspects of mountaineering at home and abroad'.
Today our members, who live all over Scotland and outside Scotland as well, are united by a love of exploring wild places. We have a programme of varied events mainly in Scotland where we climb, hill-walk and go mountaineering in summer and winter. There are regular Club trips to the Alps in summer and, intermittently, to places further afield including Greenland, the Himalayas and South America. Our members also get together outside the Club programme to do other activities, including kayaking, ski-touring and mountain biking. Guests and prospective members are very welcome to attend Meets but please contact the Membership Secretary in the first instance. Regional Events take place around Glasgow, Perth, Edinburgh and the Highlands with programmes of winter slide evenings, climbing at indoor walls, and, weather permitting, cragging at local outcrops
Enjoying the snow and sunshine
