The Great Gumclub Ticklist ticklist

contributed by duncanbutler Apr/17

As a member of Glasgow University Mountaineering Club, you'll see the best climbing locations in Scotland and the rest of Britain once or twice a year, for four or five years. You therefore have only the length of your degree to tick off every Gumclub classic and achieve the status of "legendary ex-member". From humble beginnings at Auchinstarry, through the Winter testing ground of the Ben to the sunny sandstone classics of Reiff, if you manage to complete this list during your spell in the club then your lifetime membership upon graduating will be well deserved.

55 users are subscribed to this ticklist, and none have completed the full list.
