If you’ve experienced the thrills of indoor climbing, you’ll want to get outside as soon as the weather gets good!
A great way to do this is to join the South Wales Mountaineering Club who regularly organise outdoor climbing trips.
Alternatively, Boulders has selected a group of local high quality outdoor climbing providers to get you outside. Every partner has been safety inspected and quality assured by Boulders. By choosing your outdoor adventure with one of our partners you can be assured the activity will come with the Boulders seal of approval.
To book your adventure contact one of our partners direct and don’t forget to tell them Boulders sent you!
South Wales Mountaineering Club
The South Wales Mountaineering Club, established in 1960 aims to encourage interest in mountaineering in all its forms and to bring together like minded people interested in mountaineering and climbing. The club’s activities range from mountaineering and rock climbing to scrambling and hill walking and caters for all levels of experience.
The club organises a number of meets to climbing areas throughout Britain and occasionally further afield and is open to anyone aged 18 or over (7 – 17 for junior members).
The club regularly meets on a Wednesday evening and try to get outside when the weather is good.
First timers, novices and those wishing to get involved living near Cardiff should contact John Custance on firstname.lastname@example.org. Those nearer Swansea should contact Tim Boothby on email@example.com.
