We hold climbing sessions at least every Thursday evening. In the summer at local crags and in the winter at local climbing walls. Afterwards we meet up at The Knavesmire pub from 10pm onwards for a few drinks. The pub meeting is open to everyone, it is informal and often used as a springboard for arranging trips and events.
We organise trips to Scotland for winter mountaineering, summer hill walking or rock climbing; and mountaineering expeditions to the Alps. There are also lots of day trips to the Lakes, Dales, Moors or Peak District. Most trips are organised on an ad-hoc basis, enabling us to go away when the conditions are best. These informal trips are frequently arranged on Thursday evenings, or through the club forum. Check out our trip reports to see what a typical trip is like.
We also organise more formal trips and recently, we have had trips to the Newlands Valley (Feb 2016), Patterdale (April 2016), Braemar (May 2016) and the Ogwen Valley (October 2016).
Forthcoming trips are below:
Newtonmore, 17 - 19 March 2017
We have booked the Newtonmore Hostel for a winter trip. There will be 12 places available, at a cost of £37 each (for the whole trip). The location offers the opportunity to head east or west depending on the conditions.
As this is a winter trip, anyone who wishes to attend will need to have appropriate experience and equipment. If you are unsure, ask one of the committee regarding requirements. THIS TRIP IS NOW FULLY BOOKED.
Torridon, 28 April - 1 May 2017
We have booked the Kinlochewe Bunkhouse at the end of Glen Torridon for this trip. There will be 12 places available, at a cost of £51.50 each (for the whole trip). Contact Maria to find out how to book a place.
Patterdale, 28 - 30 July 2017
The club has booked the Cleveland Mountaineering Hut in Patterdale for the weekend of 28th- 30th July 2017. There are 12 places available, at a cost of £20 per person for the full weekend. The hut is very nice, and there is plenty of walking, scrambling and climbing in the area, so plenty to do for anyone who’d like to come.
