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.  Every Wednesday evening, as long as daylight and weather permits, a group of enthusiasts meet to climb.  The usual venue is the sea-cliffs near Cummingston where there are a fine variety of short routes on sandstone.  Other destinations include Huntly’s Cave, Logie Head, Redhythe Point and Covesea.  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.

WINTER. During the winter months, the climbers meet on Wednesday (usually) evening for indoor climbing sessions.  Destinations include Inverness Leisure Centre, RAF Lossie and Grantown Leisure Centre.

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