Climbing Meets

Rock – Ice – Scrambling
Mountaineering – Bouldering

The club has a strong climbing / mountaineering scene.  There are regular evening sessions throughout the year; indoors during the winter and outdoors during the summer.  Members also undertake various other climbing adventures.

SUMMER 2021.  Every Wednesday evening through the summer, as long as daylight and weather permits, a group of enthusiasts meet to climb.  Check the Club’s public Facebook page (pinned post) for latest information on destinations and any last minute changes.  The usual venue is the sea-cliffs at Cummingston, where there are a fine variety of short routes on sandstone.  Other destinations include Logie HeadCoveseaHuntly’s Cave and Redhythe Point (All links to UK Climbing’s website).  All venues offer routes with a range of difficulty (including some suitable for complete beginners) and are excellent training grounds for beginners and those with a nervous eye on Skye’s Inaccessible Pinnacle.  Wet weather (indoor) options are currently limited by COVID-19 restrictions.

EQUIPMENT. The Club has a small selection of climbing equipment (including harness, helmet etc) that members and guests may borrow (Contact Ben Watson prior to the meet).

YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES.  Read the Club’s “About” pages for information on your responsibilities and the participation statement.  Many members have a wealth of experience that they are willing to share, but note that Club members do not provide “instruction”.
