What we're about

Backed by the London Mountaineering Club, the largest British Mountaineering Council ("BMC") affiliated club in London and the South East, this is a group for anyone interested in indoor and outdoor climbing, hill walking, and mountaineering.

We hold weekly evenings at the Westway and other climbing walls in London, as well as monthly talks and socials with guest speakers, and other outdoor and social activities in and around the capital. You will find our events in London posted on this meetup.

As these are club events, the numbers of attendees listed on the meetup do not in any way reflect the total numbers of participants. Our evenings at the Westway have typically 20-30 participants; and the social evenings may expect 50 attendees.

The London Mountaineering Club (www.londonmountaineeringclub.com) holds a full programme of weekend and longer meets around the UK and abroad. We welcome all levels of aspiration and experience; however we are not a training organisation and do not provide formal training.

We adhere to the BMC Participation Statement: The BMC recognizes that climbing, hill walking 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. We look forward to welcoming you!

Indoor Climbing @ Castle

Location visible to members

Kick start your week with an awesome session of leading, bouldering and top roping!

The Castle is London's largest climbing wall and boasts a great atmosphere. We are here every Monday from 6.30pm, meeting up in bouldering area upstairs.

If you want to do ROPED CLIMBING: you MUST have basic climbing skills in how to put on a harness, attach a rope to a harness using a rethreaded figure of eight and how to use a belay to secure a falling climber. The Castle (http://www.castle-climbing.co.uk/) runs courses every weekend.

ALL NEWBIES TO THE CASTLE: if you have the basic roped climbing skills (see above) or you are just bouldering, you will need to register as a member at the Castle at the front desk. This involves a quick test on the Castle climbing rules. Please add an extra 10/15 minutes if you need to register.
