As well as this, day and weekend meets along with social events, fell races, orienteering, mountain biking and an annual summer holiday meet all make a packed program of club activities.
Who are its members?
Club members are generally based in Teesside and the surrounding areas although many remain with the club despite having moved away. The Club membership covers a wide range of ages, climbing experiences and abilities. All have a passion for the outdoors and in particular North York Moors climbing.
