Attention ladies of SCC! Join us for a weekend of awesome sport and trad climbing in the beautiful Wye Valley 🙂
We run this very popular meet to help encourage our female contingent out onto the rocks, as despite almost half of the club now being female there is usually a male bias on meets – particularly hut meets. We have no interest in alienating our men-folk (whom we love dearly!) but having a ladies-only meet really does help give us girls the confidence to get out there and give it a go. It is a fun and friendly meet, so don’t delay – book now to ensure you don’t miss out!
We will be staying at the lovely YHA in Ross-on-Wye, just a 20 minute drive from Symonds Yat (see below). We have booked two x 6-bed rooms for this event – once these have filled up no fear, pop your name on the reserve list and when we have enough extras we will add another room – this YHA sleeps 42 so there should be plenty of space! The 6-bed rooms will cost £36 per person for two nights accommodation (including a small supplement to go towards dinner on the Saturday night). As usual, dinner will be included on the Saturday night and porridge will be available for breakfast but you will need to provide your own lunches and dinner on Friday.
There are plenty of awesome routes to get your teeth into here, and whether it’s sport or trad that tickles your fancy, you will be more than catered for. If you are new to outdoors climbing don’t worry – let us know and we can make sure you have someone to take you up some climbs. If you want to know more about the routes and start planning where you want to go check out these links to get you started:
About a 20 minute drive from the YHA is this fantastic and adventurous limestone crag in a beautiful setting overlooking the river Wye, boasting over 500 routes to keep you occupied! Not to be missed.
A bit further afield, this limestone crag has been described as “The gem of the Wye Valley” and for good reason – superb limestone, outrageous overhangs, technical faces, cracks, flakes, nice views, you name it. Mainly multi-pitch routes to about 90 metres.
Excellent sport routes, good spread of grades, solid bolting, South-facing crag – gets a good breeze so quick drying as well! What more could you ask for?
