What does the club get up to?
We climb indoors several times a week:
- Tuesdays between 7 and 10pm at Boulder Shack;
- Mondays from 7pm at Red Spider; and
- Thursdays from 7pm at Calshot.
We usually go to a nearby pub for a drink after each session – you can find us at The Rockstone most Tuesday evenings.
We also have loads of outdoor climbing meets which you can see on our events calendar here.
How much does it cost to join?
What are the benefits of joining the club?
As well as a sociable atmosphere in which to enjoy climbing, there are also some specific benefits of joining the club. These include affiliate membership to the BMC which gives you their third-party liability insurance as well as discounts of up to 20% at many outdoor retailers.
Club members receive a discount at Boulder Shack on Tuesday evenings and at Red Spider on Monday evenings, as well as concessionary rates at Calshot at any time.
Members also benefit from being able to borrow club equipment where needed on outdoor trips that are organised by the committee, as well as being able to borrow club gear when not in use for club meets.
What level of climbing experience do I need to have to join?
Can I try the club out before joining?
Non-members are also welcome to attend outdoor meets as a guest of an existing member, although in some situations we have to restrict outdoor meets to members only.
I am already a member of the BMC can I claim the membership back?
