The 4C’s, Cambridge Town’s friendly and active club welcomes members with all levels of experience. Club members participate in a wide range of outdoor activities, including rock climbing, caving, mountaineering, and walking.

Now that the pandemic restrictions are starting to ease, the calendar has been updated with some tentative dates for climbing trips. Note that these are subject to change / cancellation at short notice if the Covid guidelines change, or if we’re unable to book a campsite. When the situation about staying in huts is clearer we’ll hopefully add some caving trip dates too. As indoor mixing is still restricted, there’s still no resumption of the weekly Kelsey Kerridge / Free Press meetup yet.

The club holds regular trips at a wide range of venues across the country and further afield (or at least it did, until the Coronavirus pandemic put everything on hold), as well as additional trips organised by members between official meets. Social meetings are also arranged.

bcamemberlogoClub members can usually be found on a Wednesday night at the Free Press from about 10pm. Parking opposite the main Police Station or in the Queen Ann car park. Prior to this some may be found at the Kelsey Kerridge climbing wall; see the climbing page for more details.

Climbing trip to Yorkshire

Staying at https://cragg-hill-farm-camping.business.site/
It’s nearer the limestone than grit but neither is that far away so it should suit both the trad and sport favouring members of the club.

(Note the change of venue – we were unable to find a suitable campsite in the Gower Peninsula)

Climbing trip to Portland

Staying at https://www.weymouthcampingandcaravanpark.co.uk/
Portland is pretty much entirely sport although I know that in the past some have made the drive to Swanage so as to find trad climbing.
