Ibex Mountain & Hillwalking Club is a hiking, mountaineering and walking club based in London.

Ibex Mountain & Hillwalking Club is a friendly, inclusive club. Our members are hill walkers and mountaineers of all ages, social backgrounds and experience. We welcome new members to join us on our weekends away.

Coronavirus: With the easing of lockdown restrictions, we are now able to run some hotel-based weekends away - the club cannot currently use group accommodation. We are also organising day walks - we are asking participants to contact the organiser in advance, to ensure that we can maintain social distancing. Club nights will continue to be held on Zoom.

Weekend Trips

Scheduled weekend trips

Ibex weekend trips go to the mountains and the coast. Our favourite locations include the Lake District, Snowdonia, Yorkshire, Dartmoor and the Peak District. We stay in bunkhouses, mountain huts and hostels keeping costs down.

Day Walks

Planned day walks

Ibex organises 6-9 day walks each year. Walks start from a railway station, a short journey from London. They're a good way to get to know Ibex members and to build your fitness before coming on an Ibex weekend for the first time.

Monthly Club Night

Club night programme

We meet on the second Tuesday evening of each month in central London. There is usually a slideshow or workshop. If you're thinking of joining Ibex it's a good opportunity to meet members and to find out more about the club.

Weeks away

Longer trips programme

Ibex organises week trips to Scotland staying in self-catering cottages, so its more deluxe than our weekends - a great way to get to the remote hills. We also do an annual hut to hut trip in the Alps or other European mountains.

Indoor climbing nights

Scrambling and climbing are an option on some of our weekends. The club organises informal monthly climbing evenings at a variety of London climbing walls so that those members who climb can practice together.

Mountain training

Training weekends

The club helps members develop their mountain skills with a focus on navigation and group leadership. Some of our weekends away include opportunities for training in navigation, scrambling, climbing, and winter skills.
