Event Type


This meet will be suitable for all members with sport climbing experience looking to get into trad climbing. Being able to abseil safely is a desirable skill.


Summer is slowly coming and that means one thing… Cornwall!!! One of the most beautiful places in the UK best known for it’s sandy beaches, super surf and tasty top class pasties… and it just so happens to have some of the most amazing climbing too!

Cornwall is home to a variety of crags and climbing. It is all trad climbing and a lot of the crags required abseil access. The rock is mostly granite in the immediate area but there are other crags that offer an interesting geological range if you fancy a change.

The Lafrowda festival is making a return this year which usually culminates in live music in a very Cornish atmosphere on Sat 15th in St Just.

Although it is planned for a week away, many people may not be able to stay for the whole week due to other commitments and go for a shorter time. So do not worry if you can only come for some of it.

The Club has a stock of guidebooks which are kept at Bouldershack. This can be accessed by asking at the front desk for the key to the SCC library. Members are welcome to borrow guidebooks for the meet but please sign then out and return them promptly.

Members are also able to borrow gear from the club. This can be done by filling out an equipment request form. Details can be found here.


We are staying at the Trevaylor Campsite just outside St. Just in Cornwall. Members need to book their space with the campsite, then sign up here so we know who to expect. The campsite has a range of pitches, both standard and with electric hook up in a variety of sizes and also caters for vans. We are usually grouped together as much as possible in the bottom field.

It is a good idea to get your pitch booked early and the campsite can become busy at this time of year. We have arranged a 5% discount with the campsite on camping and touring spaces – make sure you are logged in to read details below.

The meet will run from Saturday 15th – Sunday 24th July. Members can come for whatever dates they choose, or arrive earlier and stay later.

The local Lafrowda festival culminates on ‘Lafrowd day’ on Sat 15th July with live music, stalls and an entertaining parade in the centre of St Just.
