See below for details of this year's meets
We are now planning and holding meets as normal, but please bear in mind that this has not gone away, and we may have alter plans should the situation change.
Please take a lateral flow test before attending any meet.
We aim to hold a weekend meet every month (except November, due to the Christmas Meet usually taking place at the beginning of December). Usually we stay in climbing huts which provide cheap basic facilities in shared bunkhouse accommodation, or camping in the summer. You will usually need to bring a sleeping bag and your own food. Sometimes there is the option to eat in a nearby pub, and occasionally a communal meal may be arranged which is paid for separately from the meet itself.
Throughout the year there are usually a few longer trips arranged both in the UK and overseas.
Any unused places will usually have to be paid for from club funds, so this represents a financial risk to the club. It is therefore club policy not to give refunds for cancelled bookings unless the place can be filled. Refunds will be given only in exceptional circumstances, at the discretion of the committee.
For longer trips involving a higher outlay you may wish to consider taking out travel insurance. For overseas trips you are strongly advised to take out a specialist insurance policy which covers the activities you will be undertaking, and which includes rescue, repatriation and adequate medical cover. Members are eligible for BMC insurance, and there are other specialist providers.

Meet Organisers wanted
Your club needs you!
We need a volunteer on each meet to act as the meet organiser. This isn't very onerous, but it is essential for the smooth running of the meets. For more information, or to volunteer for this role on any of the meets, contact the Meets Secretary
Cornwall camping meet - St Buryan
We will be staying at the lovely Tower Park Caravan and Campsite in St Buryan, near Lands End. Plenty of superb sea cliff climbing, and excellent walking. Please book direct with the campsite here and let Andy Crawley know you're coming
North Wales camping meet - Llyn Rhys, Llandegla
The July camping meet will be from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd July. Please make your own booking arrangments with the campsite, and let Julia Davis know once you are booked in so we know who to expect. If the booking link in the website doesn’t work then phone the site and Christine will take the details over the phone. She is having a little difficulty with the new booking system at the moment.
If you see the pink text strip on the website saying they are closed ignore it as it is out of date.
The campsite is almost next to the mountain biking trails at Llandegla https://oneplanetadventure.com/trails-2/
The Offa’s Dyke footpath passes through very close to the campsite and there is walking in the forest.
It is approximately 20/25 mins drive to the climbing at Trevor Quarry near Llangollen and there are many other limestone climbing areas close by. https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crags/trevor_quarry-427/
Lundy Island, Bristol Channel
Not only is the climbing superb, but Lundy is a very special place, with spectacular coastal scenery and sheltered valleys, rich in wildflowers and wildlife . We are staying in the Barn, which provides bunkhouse-style accommodation. This trip has been carried over from 2020.
There are now 4 spaces available on this trip - contact Andy if interested.
