The Lincoln Mountaineering Club was formed in the early 1960's with weekly meetings held in the Adam and Eve Pub on Lindum Hill. An association was formed with the Obnail Club based in Manchester which lead to the club becoming joint lease holders of the Obnail hut in Elterwater, Langdale. With a number of members also being members of the Gloucester Mountaineering Club a reciprocal agreement for hut usage was formed which allowed the LMC to use their hut in Deiniolen above Llanberis.

With the opening of the climbing wall at the North Kesteven Sports centre in Lincoln, the club moved its regular weekly meeting to Wednesday evenings at the climbing wall and the Fox & Hounds Pub. Sadly the development of modern climbing walls has left the sports centre in the dark ages. As better climbing walls are available within a reasonable drive from Lincoln the club abandoned the use of the climbing wall and moved it's weekly meeting to the Morning Star on Greetwell Gate.

In 1992 the owners of the Obnail Hut sold out to the Langdale time-share estate. After the loss of the Obnail hut the committee began looking for a new hut. In 1998 the club purchased the White House cottage in Deiniolen from the South Wales Mountaineering Club with the help of a grant from the National Lottery. The Club is actively working on making improvements the hut.

The club meets on Wednesday evenings 8pm onwards at The Strugglers Inn, 83 Westgate, Lincoln. Forthcoming meets are discussed and traveling arrangements are made. If you miss a Wednesday and want to know what is going on then please phone the meets secretary.
