Throughout the year the club run several outdoor trips, these include a variety of climbing styles that can be put into practice and hopefully help members to develop there skills and passion for climbing further.
The trip to the Peak District is the first trip of the year, we stay in a scout hut so are in indoor accomodation, however on the downside it is quite small and there are no showers. No to put you off, we can visit a variety of locations in the Peaks from here, generally looking at setting up single pitch climbs on a bottom rope so that freshers can try out both climbing and also belaying.
Visiting Eric’s Barn in Tremadog is a favourite for many club members, with the Tremeadog climbs literally outside the door it is perfectly located. There are showers just across the road (don’t forget your 50p) and we are in large alpine style bunks. The climbs here multi-pitch trad climbs, so freshers will be taken out within suitable ratios with experienced members of the club.
One of the most anticipated events of the year is our annual dinner. Generally in March/April, this trip is designed to let all members of the club flourish and advance their newly gained climbing ability to the outdoor crags. The location for annual dinner is decided upon by the club exec each year, however be sure to let them know if you have any suggestions.
After Exams, its summer, and hopefully all those who have attended the course for the year can now put their leading to the test. This is generally the last official trip of the year, however members often make plans amongst themselves for further trips over summer before the following year.
