About The Club
We are one of London’s most active climbing and mountaineering clubs, offering a friendly forum for meeting keen participants at all levels of the sport.
Climbing wall meets
The club meets every Monday at the Castle Climbing Wall in north London and every Wednesday at Mile End Climbing Wall to climb and socialise – say hi on the relevant Chat Forum thread to let us know you’re joining in, or Contact the New Members’ Secretary for details.
From the Castle we usually head to the Brownswood after climbing, just down the road. From Mile End we go to the Palm Tree pub, about two minutes away from the climbing wall in Mile End Park.
We are very active outdoors; it is rare that a weekend will go by without members of the club climbing somewhere, as long as it isn’t raining!
We hold outdoor meets regularly throughout the year, to venues across the UK. There are also a couple of new members’ meets at our club cottage every year, which are a great way of meeting members of the club. Other annual fixtures are our barbecue on the beach at Treen in Cornwall around the summer solstice, and the annual dinner in the Autumn.
Additionally, groups of members go away almost every weekend to climb all over the country. These trips are arranged informally at the club’s sessions on Monday or Wednesday, or through the chat forum.
The club huts
The club is very lucky to own two huts in the Snowdonia National Park. The cottage is used exclusively by club members and their guests and is a regular venue for weekend trips away. The barn is available for hire for groups of up to 30 and is ideal for use by mountaineering clubs, universities, scouts, schools and colleges.
