Meets

There are fortnightly meets organised by various committee members.  Sign up online at 8am on the Wednesday beforehand. Please note that places are often in demand and so sign-up is done on a first come first serve basis - the earlier you log in, the more likely you are to get a place! The price of meets are usually £15-£35. You are permitted to go on one meet per year before you are required to pay the club membership fee.

Before the meet, an email will be sent out with meet and transport information, and a kit list. Please note that you are likely to have a very uncomfortable weekend (or worse) if you do not bring everything on this list. If you are missing something: borrow, beg, buy, or try the Gear Store.

The first few meets of the year are structured - there will be options available for those of you that are new to mountaineering. If you are new to climbing, it is highly advisable that you take a course (we offer places on various throughout the year: speak to our Meet Secretary and Safety Secretary), or at least politely ask more experienced members of the club whether they can give you a safe introduction. Be aware of the risks that you pose to yourself and to others you are with as an inexperienced mountaineer. The more you know, the more steps you can take towards mitigating the inherent risks of mountaineering.

Socials

The social program for the club is organised by our Social Secretaries with regular events happening on Thursday evenings. These range from the sensible, for example navigation & avalanche awareness talks, our black tie Christmas Dinner, to the slightly-less-than sensible, such as sock wrestling and beerienteering. Old or new, everyone is welcome!
