Meets

*COVID - 19 UPDATE*  We are now back to running a full trips schedule. We will continue to follow government rules and BMC guidance and we will post any changes and update here.

NOTE: Current club policy (January 2022) is that, in the spirit of the club and our responsibility for our own and each other's safety and wellbeing, we are asking trip participants to take a lateral flow test before attending meets.

Meets are what the club is all about. They're run by members, for members. The club thrives by having members take an active interest in the meets that are run. We typically agree the next year's meets - where we're going and who's organising which meet - at our AGM in October. The Frequently Asked Questions page offers advice on what to expect on a meet.

Depending on the program or application you're using, you may need to choose the "subscribe" or "add by URL" option. Contact the Webmaster for help.

Novice meet - Peak District
20 May 2022 to 22 May 2022

Update 17/05 - final trip email has been sent. Please contact Anne or Wei if you have not received this.

BOOKINGS CLOSED EXCEPT TO EXPERIENCED VOLUNTEER LEADERS

Our annual climber’s Novice meet at Stanage, Hope Valley, staying at Hardhurst Farm campsite.

Interested in trying out climbing, or getting into outdoor trad? Come along!

Do you lead trad already? We need you to share your skills and knowledge with newer climbers in the Club.

If climbing on the classic gritstone climbing edges of Bamford, Burbage and Stanage is not for you, there is walking through Edale and Kinder Scout, or rent a mountain bike and explore the local tracks.

Camping equipment essential, basic climbing equipment (helmet, harness, shoes) suggested. Look out for the email in advance of the trip with more details.

Note: The Rockhoppers Club does not directly provide formal training, the Novice Meet simply offers guidance from club members.
