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 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 an expanding programme of weekend trips further afield, organised by club members.
In conjunction with the BMC and the National Trust we have recently carried out extensive work at Yarncliffe and Lawrencefield quarries to improve the crag environment, and helped the Eastern Moors Partnership carry out some crag/woodland management along Curbar and Froggatt Edges.
