Traditional Easter climbing trip to Cornwall.
West Cornwall is one of Britain’s great climbing areas, and this is normally one of our most popular trips. The area is famous for big, serious multipitch adventures in dramatic locations, but there’s also a lot of excellent climbing at amenable grades in less committing situations. On top of that, there are plenty of extracurricular options including walking, surfing and the ever popular pasties and cream teas.
We’ll be staying at the Seaview Holiday Park, near Sennen on the Land’s End peninsula

Caving trip to the Peak District. Staying at the Orpheus Hut south of Buxton. We have no specific caves booked but could do SRT ones such as Eldon Hole or Oxlow or ladder trips such as Giants. There is also plenty of walking and cycling near the hut plus climbing on
the western side of the Peak district. Please let me know ASAP but definitely by noon on Tuesday April 22nd if you want to come on this trip.
