24 Mar - 26 MarPEAK BMC YOUTH MEET - R.O.DOWNES HUT
Trad climbing meet based at the R.O.Downes Hut for 12 under 18 year old climbers and some experienced climbers. This is organised for young climbers, under 18, principally who want to make the step from climbing walls to climbing outside on crags but also those who have climbed outside on crags before. This is also a good chance to enjoy climbing in the Peak, staying at one of the climbing huts owned by the Climbers Club and meet other climbers both young and old.

10 Apr - 23 AprEaster Meet - tarragona - Siurana, Arboli, Mont-Ral.
Easter in the Catalonian climbing paradise of Siurana! All welcome (young and old) , Focus is a climbing trip with plenty for lower grade climbers (ie. up to 6b sport), and the guidebooks have been pored over to confirm there are enough starred routes to keep lower grade climbers occupied for a busy holiday. However those who know Siurana will immediately realise there no shortage of routes (coughs to indicate understatement)in the higher grades (if anyone wants to repeat Chris Sharma's or Adam Ondra's routes, feel free 😉 ).
