Freshers Trip 1 – The Peaks – Fri 11th – Sun 13th October
This is our first Freshers Trip of the year! A great opportunity to get outside and experience climbing. The trip will cost £35, and this includes: Transport, Breakfasts (Sat & Sun) and dinner (Sat), Accommodation and the use of all the clubs gear.
Single pitch climbing (climb to top and be lowered back down) with freshers having ability to belay and climb whilst being safely backed up by experienced members.
Accommodation is in a scout hut with very basic facilities, note there is no shower for the 2 nights (I’m sure you can all cope!) so no need for a towel, but remember your waterproof clothing, plenty of warm clothes (extra jumpers well worth it) as well as some insect repellent for while we are out.
We will be meeting at 5:00pm to attempt to leave at 5:30pm on Friday 25th from the blue door by the Bouldering room (Sports Centre). All trip fees need paying to Mike in order to confirm you place and an email will be sent to all those attending with a kit list and a few more details nearer the time.
