OUTDOOR MEETS

We usually have two outdoor meets each month. These typically fall on the weekend of the first and third weeks of the month. We also take advantage of bank holidays (so the usual schedule may be changed around them) to get more days in the hills or to get to more remote locations.

 

We generally travel out to the venue on Friday evening and back on Sunday and share lifts wherever possible.

Typically we camp in the summer months and stay in huts or hostels in the colder months, so you will need your own tent for the camping meets.

We don't explicitly organise climbs or walks for people to do on the meets. Usually the night before or at breakfast we make arrangements about who will be doing what. If you are new, it is a good idea to come to a social meet or go down the climbing wall before going on a meet so you can talk to some of us about the meet you are interested in.

If you are a climber, particularly if you are inexperienced, then it's definitely a good idea to meet us and we can see which meets would be best for you to go on based on your experience.
