Update 27/7/17: there is a small number of places on this meet now available to non-members with a suitable level of experience. If you are interested, please get in touch.

Lundy

Lying in the turquoise waters of the Bristol channel is the magical island of Lundy. Measuring less than 2 miles square this lump of granite rises steeply from the sea providing a high concentration of climbing excellence on its largely immaculate cliffs. While undoubtedly the major attraction is the Devils Slide, a monstrous slab offering a number of options for those who can put faith in friction, there are hundreds of routes to go at across all the grades with something to suit every sea cliff-loving climber, and if you're a wildlife lover do not despair, while the puffins might have gone home for the year you can expect to have plenty of interaction with the local seal population. 

The club has reserved and paid for ten spaces at the campsite on Lundy for the week 2-9 September. As we have paid the money up-front a long
way in advance, we are guaranteed the 2016 price of £42 per person for the week, this is whether or not there are any prices increases for 2017. Members can secure their place on the meet by paying this £42 campsite fee to the club (contact the meet leaders for information on
how to do this). As the campsite booking is now fixed, members wishing to take advantage of this meet will have to pay for a full week's stay (just paying for a few nights isn't an option, unless you can find another member to 'share' a week with you!).

The ferry crossing at present costs £64 return per person (prices might increase by 2017) and we must make our ferry booking at the absolute
latest 2 weeks before the meet. We suggest that for now you book your place on the meet by paying your campsite fees, and closer to the time
the meet leaders will get in touch to coordinate a single ferry booking for members attending the meet.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. In the first instance, places are only open to full and associate members; if there are places remaining closer to the time, these will be opened up to non-members.
