What's happening?

As well as regular weekly meets for climbers and walkers, club members organise frequent ad hoc weekend and longer trips both home and abroad.  We are active most weeks throughout the year. Most are on the calendar but events are often organised a day or so in advance with an eye on the weather and so don't make it onto the website. Ad hoc outings are organised through Slack so remember to check there for the latest info on the next meet.

For more details of any meet, check the calendar, get in touch with the trip organiser or contact climbingmeets@southdevonmc.org.uk or walkingmeets@southdevonmc.org.uk.

For all meets, please be aware of the seriousness of the venue and the activity. We encourage our members to try new activities but this should never be at the expense of safety. Sea-cliff climbing and winter mountaineering are good examples of more committing activities where more experience may be required and members should contact the trip coordinator if they have any doubts about their ability to safely take part in the trip.

Regular Meets

Some club meets happen every week. However, please check the Yahoo group for any changes or to check that people are going.

Walking Meets

Walks will be added to the calendar when they're planned and details circulated on Slack. These are subject to change, so keep an eye on your email.

Other Meets

Below is the list of currently scheduled/proposed longer meets. Contact names will be added when confirmed. Keep an eye on Slack email for updates, or contact the trip leader. Please ensure you have a confirmed space in the hut (where applicable) before traveling.

We need more meets! Please get in touch if you have an idea for a destination.
