  • Climbing on the Jurassic coast

    Friday, 16th February 2018 at 6pm - 5pm Tuesday, 20th February
    Location: Portland Dorset

    February isn't usually the best month for climbing in the UK. But for those keen to keep their mileage up on real rock throughout winter, Portland offers one of the best winter options. We've climbed there in February in T-shirts, but we've also had character building days where we've huddled together in belay jackets and it's taken hours for the fingers to warm up properly. 

    Portland and Weymouth allegedly have the sunniest climate in England. Portland is blessed with crags facing most directions, and in winter crag choice is usually decided based on avoiding the wind, or catching the sun. The recent publication of Rockfax's Dorset Bouldering, has shown that not only does the island have some of the best mid-grade sport climbing in the UK, but that it's also blessed with tons of great blocs too. This is the third time we've run this meet, and for quite literally a taste of what could be in store on the South coast, see this trip report by Adam Rembiaz 

    Portland is one of Britain's best winter venues, but it ain't Spain! This meet is going to be best suited to those who are a little bit tough and don't mind wrapping up. But the friction will be good! Arranging a rock climbing meet in winter is always a bit risky, but luckily the bunkhouse offer a bad weather guarantee. In the event of a terrible forecast we can postpone this meet to the following weekend or get our money back. The price is £17 per person per night (including bedding).

    If you would like to sign up for the meet could you do so via 'Doodle Poll' and tick the nights you would like to stay for. We will collect the money nearer the time (probably the week before the trip). Any questions about this trip please contact Tony Bishopp (anthony.bishopp@gmail.com)

  • Fontainebleau bouldering

    Saturday, 31st March 2018 at 9am - 5pm Saturday, 7th April
    Location: Forest of Fontainebleau, France

    The unique bouldering mecca that is the 'Foret de Fontainebleau' in France is our destination once again for a spring bouldering trip. As the name suggests the main activity for this trip is bouldering, although the area offers pleasant walking and cycling too. 

    As usual this is one of our 'self-service' meets. So groups of members are organising their transport/accommodation for the trip and then meeting up to boulder together each day. There is a variety of accommodation available including camping, static caravans, gite's and hotels. Several groups have already got gite's booked in our usual area near Milly-la-foret, and there is also camping and static caravans at the nearby La Musardiere campsite.

    Early spring is a popular time to visit Fontainebleau as the weather generally at it's best for bouldering. Hence it is a good idea to book early!
