Welcome to the Peak Climbing Club
The club has been climbing in the Peak District and all over the world for 70 years. We are an informal climbing club, happy to welcome new members or help passing climbers to find the best crags. We're based in the eastern Peak, with members from Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham, Chesterfield, Doncaster and villages in the Peak.
We are mainly rock climbers, with members climbing at a variety of grades - anywhere from Diffs to the mid-E grades. Our interests also extend to bouldering, Scottish winter climbing and mountaineering, alpinism in Europe and South America, walking, mountain biking and fell running.
We meet every Thursday evening to climb on crags in the Peak in the summer and indoors at one of the Sheffield walls in the winter. There are informal meets on many evenings and weekends.
We also have a busy programme of weekend or longer trips further afield.
It is with great sadness that we have to report the death of Ron Townsend on 14th May 2015.
Ron founded the Peak Climbing Club in 1942, and climbed until he was in his 80s. He climbed first ascents of some familiar routes, including Via Media, Narrow Buttress, Gargoyle Buttress and, of course, Townsend's Variation, and was involved in writing guidebooks in the 1950s and '60s. He was an honorary member of the PCC and also the Fell and Rock Climbing Club.
We climb outdoors in the evening throughout the summer months. Through the winter we climb at each of the Sheffield walls
