Meet Organiser – Stu
Date range suggested for this meet somewhere between 25th April and 16th May 2020. Details to be confirmed.
Join us on a trip to Italy with a plethora of climbing and mountaineering activities available, depending on your interests and budget. There are sport climbs in the valleys, via ferattas higher up and Gran Paradiso (4061m) and the southern Mont Blanc routes for the keen. You could join us for a total cost of less than £500 but it depends on your ambitions because the big peaks could need cable cars, huts and maybe a guide so nearer £1000 if your sights are high!
Late autumn in Spain – the rock’s warm, the beer’s cold and the pool has had eight months to warm up. If you fancy a week sport climbing in a T shirt in October, this is the trip for you! El Chorro has dozens of crags with thousands of routes and RoCs has a copy of the new (December 2018) Rockfax guidebook. We’ll explore several areas, perhaps including some long (40m+) and multi-pitch routes. For more inspiration see https://mojagear.com/sport/2017/06/01/climbing-destination-guide-el-chorro-spain/.
Eight of us went in 2019 and had a brilliant time! We flew from Bournemouth, stayed in a large villa and self-catered (well, Hannah cooked every evening with a little assistance!) and rented two cars for flexibility (volunteer drivers needed…). I’ll be booking accommodation in the Spring so if you want to make sure of your place I’ll need a deposit before 30 April.
