What we're about
Who are we?
We are friendly, laid back group in the Midlands that connects people with a love for outdoor sports including: Surfing, Mountain Biking, Climbing, Kayaking, Hiking… generally anything where you get to throw yourself about a bit, get dirty, get wet, and generally have fun.
What do we do?
Club night is on a Wednesday at "The Warehouse Climbing & Caving Centre" in Gloucester ( https://www.the-warehouse.co.uk/) We climb and boulder from 7pm and finish at 10ish. Often we head out to the pub afterwards for a laugh and to chat about upcoming activities.
We go on regular trips away for climbing, surfing and mountain biking amongst others, plus regular socials and other events. All ability levels welcome! Member organised events are encouraged and are generally organised on our Facebook group - If you want to do something post on their to find people to do it with.

How ESC works -
ESC is a non-profit BMC affiliated club. We aim to break even over the year and for most events we don't charge at all. Many members organise their own events via our Facebook page, and if you want to do something your welcome to post on their to find like minded people to join you.
Costs (such as Meetup) are mostly covered by club membership fees of £20 a year. Membership is optional for you, but essential for the club to keep running. Membership also covers your BMC membership and insurance and provides discounts at a wide range of outdoor stores. BMC insurance is essential if you climb outside with us, although your first two trips are covered under the BMC "prospective member" rules.

The club is run by a committee elected every January, and membership runs from 1st of January every year.
