Climb Shetland was a website simply set up to link climbers in Shetland. As the group grew the logical step was to become a club, and we now have a really active club scene organising club trips in Shetland and elsewhere, meeting at the Clickimin indoor wall most weeks and usually out for a sneaky beer afterwards too! If you're interested in joining the club, have a read through this page and it should give you all the information you need.

Meets & Trips

Club meets and trips will be added to the forum. We meet regularly in the summer, socials in winter, as well as organising annual trips off Shetland.

Indoor Wall

We also meet regularly at the indoor wall at the Clickimin. Club nights are Mondays, from 7.30-9.30pm and cost £4 for members and £6 for non-members.

Club Gear

We have harnesses, helmets, belay devices to borrow and a rope and quickdraws to use at the wall. Members can collect and return it on club wall nights.
