One of the most important benefits of joining a club is the partners and friends you will make! 
Jack and Alistair met on a winter meet at Beudy Mawr, our Welsh club hut and just a few months later they were out in the Alps tackling ridges together.

Stanley Jeffcoat on Scoop Face HVS 5a

Joining the club in 1908 Jeffcoat went on to become one of it's pioneering members. In 1914 he cracked the tricky start to Scoop Face at Naze by tackling it barefoot!

Sadly Jeffcoat was amongst many climbers who were lost in the First World War. He left behind a wealth of climbs not to be underestimated 100 years on.

A search for premises close to the Kinder/Bleaklow area proved fruitless but then Herbert Carr, Hon. Sec. of the Climbers’ Club and former Rucksack Club member, suggested Tal y Braich Uchaf, a small farmhouse near to Helyg, the CC’s new hut in the Ogwen Valley. A lease was signed in February 1927 and we are fortunate to have in the archives Keith Treacher’s unpublished history of Tal y Braich covering the next seventeen years.
