Details

We have again booked a full day of rock climbing and scrambling/bouldering on Harrison’s Rocks with Extreme Ventures! The session is suitable for both beginners and more experienced climbers.

We will be lead by a qualified and very experienced instructor as we scramble over boulders, through gullies, the squeeze and much more gaining new climbing skills and confidence whilst moving over rough terrain.

After a lunch break we will then apply those climbing skills we have learnt to rope climbing. We will be climbing the naturally formed rock faces that provide grades of climbing for all abilities and experience.

Harrison's Rocks is owned by climbers and is managed on their behalf by the British Mountaineering Council (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Mountaineering_Council)

Meetup place: Harrison Rocks, Birchden Woods, Near Groombridge, East Sussex, TN3 9NJ (Approx). We meet in the main car park at 11.15 am

Getting there by train from London:
We will meet at London Victoria train station at 9.30am to catch the 10.02am train to Eridge (via East Croydon) . Off peak day return ticket is £13.80. If we get in groups of 3+, we can get 1/3 off with GroupSave tickets. Please arrive in plenty of time as there are likely to be queues for tickets. Important – while we will try on the day to get people in groups of 3+ to access the GroupSave tickets, this is not always possible and you might need to buy a full-priced ticket. Therefore we suggest you use the meetup message board to form groups of four ahead of the meetup day.

We need to change trains at East Croydon, so some people might find it more convenient to catch a train from the there (it's 10.23am train, arriving to Eridge at 11.03am)

From Eridge station we will take a local taxi to Harrison Rock (taxi fare is not included but should not be more then a few pounds each way)
