Events

Regular meets

In the winter we have regular indoor meets for climbing and organise walks at weekends.

Throughout the year we organise walking and climbing trips within the Brecon Beacons and other parts of the UK.

Members also get together more regularly for climbing and walking on an ad hoc basis.

In the summer you are more likely to find us at the local crag in the evenings than at the climbing wall.

 

For 2019 we have two competitions running Climb for Fitness and Everest Anywhere.


Climb for Fitness will run throughout January where club members aim to climb as much indoor metres as they can. All metres climbed will be totalled together

 

Everest Anywhere will run throughout the year and is a walking peak bagging challenge. Club members will aim to get out there as much as possible in the year and climb mountains, the person with the highest metres climbed will win a prize!
