Cancelled - The Presidents Hotpot and Photo Competition

Can you believe the prestigious KMC Photo Competition is nearly upon us for another year? 


Evening: HOTPOT & Slideshow 

featuring photos you *definitely* don't want to miss

At The Globe in Glossop from 6pm, starting at 7pm.

£6 per person for vegan hotpot and a hot pie/treacle sponge for dessert. Please email: to book your place and bring your £6 on the night. 


Daytime Fun


Rivelin is our crag of choice this year. A well-protected crag with a great sprinkling of routes of all grades, to suit everyone. We haven't been here for ages (some of us never!), so come along and have a Rivelin adventure.

Meet: Rivelin Reservoir Car Park at 10.30am

Climbing at: Birch Buttress then Kremlin Crack (depending on the tawny owls!)

Routes you might want to try out: 

Birch Crack, VD

Birch Buttress, S 4a

Seville Flake, VS 4c

Kremlin Crack, HVS 5a

Left Edge, VS 4c

Rodney's Dilemma, S 4a

Blizzard Ridge, HVS 5a


Friendly Walk: Meet at 1.30pm at the Reservoir Car Park

The plan is for a leisurely walk of around 3-4 miles with some opportunities to make it shorter or longer depending on preference and athletic potentialities on the day. 

I'm looking for a walk leader for this, so if you'd like to help out, please email me: A meet leader will be found, so if you fancy this, arrive at 1.30 ready for a gentle trot round the nearby countryside. 



If you haven't entered before, this is your opportunity to get your name on one of our esteemed and shiny KMC trophies, and of course to receive rapturous applause and eternal respect from your peers. Entry is easy and you will have ample opportunity to torment Jim Symon via your submission, if you so desire.

What to do: 

Send up to four entries per category to:
Name your files: Your name, Category, Photo Title & location

Categories are: 

Mountain Landscape
Mountain Action 
Rock Action 
Human Interest & digital fun

What about Jim? 
The continuing 'Jim Symon' category will feature as a separate and distinct category at the President's Hotpot, so make sure you enter something. *Archive entries will be accepted in this category only. Yes, it's time to trawl back through your vast repositories and to enter something special into this much loved category. Remember that you've got plenty of others years, so you can spread out your photographic gems and save a few for next year. 


Photos to have been taken in the last 12 months*.
Deadline for submission is Sunday 5th April.
