We are a friendly and active club of nearly 200 members. Whilst most of us are based in South Manchester, the Northern Peak District and East Cheshire, others regularly get involved from Sheffield, Leeds, North Wales, Cornwall and even Orkney!
Almost every other weekend throughout the year we have a meet to a different part of the UK, interspersed with a series of longer meets including: a Scottish Winter trip in February; a South UK/ European hot rock trip over Easter; a week in Scotland or Ireland during Whit; and a multi-week Alpine Meet over the summer.
On these meets our members are likely to do a whole range of different activities from multi-pitch sea cliff climbing to mountaineering to mountain biking (and a wealth of more gentle or esoteric activities if that’s your scene)! See what our committee like getting up to here, and find out how we’ve been entertaining ourselves during the COVID-19 lockdown in the video below:
During the summer (i.e. daylight saving time) months, we climb outdoors in the Peak District every Tuesday evening. Over the Winter months, a good way to find out more about the club is by joining us at Awesome walls, Stockport most Tuesdays from around 7pm for a chat and some climbing. You could also join us for a hike and pub meal on the first Sunday of every month November-March.
Thinking of joining?
You are very welcome to get to know us a bit first before joining. Our Turn Up and Tie On events in March and April are particularly tailored to prospective members, but all our meets are very informal. Please visit the membership page for more information.
We are a family-friendly club and supervised children of all ages are welcome on meets and at the club hut. However, we can only offer formal membership to those aged 18 or over.
It is assumed that you will have some climbing experience. If you are an absolute beginner, then we recommend first attending one of the introductory courses offered by all the local climbing walls.
You can also find out a bit more about some of our members, our impromptu meet-ups, and who might be attending Tuesday evening meets each week from our Facebook page.
