50Y-logo-150x150 The Castle Mountaineering Club is a BMC affiliated mountaineering club based in Sheffield. To celebrate the Club’s 50th Anniversary, club members undertook three challenges in the Peak District in July 2017: one climbing, one walking and one cycling. They also added an additional Peak District Boundary Walk challenge which was coordinated by Sean Jennings. Each of the stages of the Boundary Walk was done by some member(s) of the Club between July and their Anniversary Celebration weekend in October. You can see their record of achievement on their website:
