Welcome to the Orkney Climbing Club



Thank you for visiting our website, we are a friendly club based in Orkney, and are affiliated to the MCofS.

Please feel free to browse the site to get an idea of the activities we get involved in. Non-members are welcome to attend up to 2 of the local climbing meets prior to applying for membership, so that they can assess whether the club meets their needs. Other official club meets, trips and events are open to members  and invited guests. 

Details of membership and how to join the club can be found at the Club Info tab in the bar above. There is a forum (open to members) where you can ask your burning questions or find more information of some topics. There is some information available on local routes (work in progress), trip reports from club members and information on upcoming meets and events. You can also contact us using the form linked, or directly at orkney.climbing@gmail.com.
