We are a club that promotes getting people into climbing. Our objective is to get like minded people together and encourage mountaineering and rock-climbing. We welcome anyone from the age of 8 to attend. Benefits of membership include:

  • Regular meets throughout the UK.
  • Access to a network of climbing partners.
  • Climbing coaching and workshops.
  • Help with obtaining Climbing Wall Instructor (CWI) & Rock Climbing Instructor (RCI) qualifications.
  • Discounted sessions at LOPC’s Adventure Club.

Cost of Membership:

To become a full member costs £15.00.

There is a charge of £5.50 per evening for club nights at LOPC.  For the tower and the station you pay them the entry fee directly and will not need to pay anything to LOPC.

The Programme:

The programme will consist of a 4 weekly rotation for Tuesday evenings:
Week 1 LOPC
Week 2 The Tower Climbing Centre
Week 3 LOPC
Week 4 The Climbing Station

There will also be weekend days trips every few weeks to different indoor walls in the winter and outdoor crags in the summer.
We also run a variety of longer trips further afield, to Yorkshire, Wales, Portland Spain and France to name a few. Some trips are age restricted.

Club Nights:

The LOPC nights will run Tuesdays evenings from 6pm, and will mainly be focused on the fundamentals of climbing. There will be time to chat and plan trips away as a group. The club has access to maps, books and experienced people to help. We have a relaxed attitude to how the LOPC nights run and we will have experienced staff on hand to help with any problems you may be having with your climbing.

Under 14's (minimum age is 8 years) and families 6pm to 7.30pm
14 and over's 7.30pm to 9pm
We also will sometimes have a short meeting with all members at 7.30pm to share information regarding upcoming trips.

Evenings away to the bigger walls will have an LOPC staff member there to help assist you, but you will have free range to experience other forms of climbing that they offer.
