Welcome to the Romsey Climbers website!
Romsey Climbers (RoCs) is a small, friendly club with membership mainly in the Romsey, Southampton and South Hampshire area. RoCs is a club for adult climbers of all ages (over 18 years old), abilities and skill levels. Unfortunately, we cannot accept anyone under the age of 18 years old into the club. As long as you can safely tie on and know how to belay, we are happy to meet up with you for a chat and a climb at either Calshot or Romsey’s Golden Gecko (usually on a Friday evening). Annual RoCs club Membership runs from January 1st to December 31st in line with the Club BMC membership.
If you have never climbed outside on rock, we can safely introduce you to this; indeed we have regular outdoors beginner meets for this very purpose! If you have not climbed at all, we recommend that you attend a Calshot Activities Centre “Climbing Beginner course” or a Romsey Golden Gecko wall “Induction course” first.
Club members participate in a wide range of climbing activities including:
- Indoor climbing (regular meets at Calshot or Romsey Golden Gecko climbing walls)
- Outside Trad and Sport climbing at all grades (day trips and weekend meets)
- Single and Multi-pitch climbing at all grades in the UK and Europe
- Winter Climbing & Mountaineering (at all grades)
- Alpine and UK Mountaineering
- Scrambling and Hillwalking
- Club Social meets
The club places a strong emphasis on safety as well as consideration for other climbers and the mountain & crag environment. Check out the slideshow below, our RoCs News page and the RoCs Facebook Page to see what we do and where we go. We are a BMC registered club, and all members have support and Club Membership from the BMC. Also click here to view our poster to see more information.
The club meets regularly at the indoor climbing wall at Calshot Activities Centre or at the Golden Gecko wall in Romsey, usually on Friday evenings, but check our Indoor Climbing page for more up-to-date information.
