We are a group based near Bradford, for people who want to climb or have days out in the hills and mountains. The group has being going for about 3½ yrs. now (as at Aug.’14). We have found that there are lots of people who want to climb but don’t know where to start or have ‘had a go’ and aren’t sure what to do next. Or, you might have some experience and have been ‘out of action’ for a while or have no-one to climb with, or you might simply want to have fun days out on the crags.

We meet twice a week to climb outdoors during the summer months and as often as the weather allows during the winter. Last winter we met indoors at climbing walls (excellent of course, for complete beginners) and because of demand these have continued during the summer. Recently we have had several residential meets in the Lakes and Snowdonia, staying in YHA or bunkbarn accommodation. We are becoming a very busy group and various members are giving some thought to walks and social events.

There is a membership fee - £8 for 6 months or £15 for the full year - to cover the costs of the Meetup fees and the purchase of a new rope and guidebooks. This replaces the ‘subs’ we charged for every meet and give new members a chance to try out climbing (and the group !) . After 3 or 4 sessions, you could then decide whether to become a member or not.

Just a cautionary note to say we are not professionally qualified and are not insured but the members now have a very wide range of experience and abilities so we hope that we are welcoming and can pass on our advice and enthusiasm.

Before joining this site you should read the BMC participation statement which states:

"The BMC recognises that climbing and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death.
Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement."

If you do not accept full responsibility for for your own actions and involvement in any outdoor activities please do not join this group, Yorkshire Climbers cannot accept responsibility for the actions of its members and advises everyone to get adequate insurance for the activities they want to take part in, Insurance details can be found on the BMC site.

So, if you think this is for you, come along and experience the fun of being ‘out there’ !

    Fees of $72 (£47) are due to Meetup again, on March 1st. I've never been much good at collecting subs or membership fees, so this is an appeal for a donation, more to show commitment to the group, as the last call for fees will probably cover the next dues as well.

    Mallaig Ferry Terminal
    Station Rd., Mallaig (map)
    James came up with the idea of a 3 (or 4) day 'adventure' in Scotland, so the idea is to travel up to Mallaig (about 43 mls. beyond Fort William), catch the ferry to Knoydart, which is probably one of the remotest parts of the UK and have a trek into the hills and mountains, wild camping along the way. We can take food; it doesn't have to be... Learn more
