These are the first trips of the year, and a great time to meet everyone! We split people into Leaders, Seconds and freshers so no matter your experience you’ll get plenty of climbing in. These are pretty informal trips so just take time to get to know everybody whilst we show you the ropes…pun intended.
The funkiest trip of the year. Dig out all your waviest garms and get ready to sock wrestle! If the games aren’t enough for you, you’ll also love the chance to get out on the Welsh Slate. A trip to the legendary climbing cafe Pete’s Eats is how we end off the weekend with their pint sized mugs of tea to warm you up after a classic Welsh weekend!
A must do trip for aspiring alpinists and winter hikers! Learn how to use ice axes, crampons, navigate winter terrain and move safely across avalanche prone ground. Coming right after January exams it’s a great way to celebrate exam freedom! This year we’ll be exploring the iconic Cairngorms, so whether you’re being instructed by professional mountain guides or off on your own adventure, this is a weekend you won’t want to miss!
Finally a chance to see the club out of their down jackets… and into their dinner jackets and heels. Two days of climbing and hiking in the beautiful Lake District, plus our brilliant annual dinner! Enjoy a three course meal and then everyone’s favourite part, the ceilidh – hope you brought your dancing shoes as well as your climbing shoes!
